Lola Batiste

​Born in Paris,Texas to a musical family, Lola Batiste whose aunt was a baptist church pianist who played with the intensity of a “Jerry Lee Lewis” had an early influence on Lola's interpretation of a lyric, Lola who attended the catholic church whose choir pianist had a more repressed style began singing hymns with the choir where she fused her aunt's fervent gospel playing with the subdued hymns of the catholic church creating a unique mix of vocal style that leaned more toward a melancholy vibe.

“When I'm performing I can still hear my aunt's music and I can still hear the music from the hymns I used to sing in the catholic church and I really don't try to separate those sounds in my head, I just go with the flow and blend them together to create my own unique melody”, that's the beauty of singing jazz.
