Lola Regenthal Lola Regenthal

Born in Kalmar, Sweden and raised in an artistic home in Räpplinge on the island öland, Lola began playing drums at the age of 10, soon performing with various jazz bands and ensembles in the Kalmar/öland area. She developed her passion for singing at the music high school in Oskarshamn/Sweden while the drums kept beating as the perfect instrument for creating Lola's very strong rhythmical voice. She was awarded the Didrik Af Wåhlberg's Jazz Scholarship and won a talent act where she sang a soul cover and accompanied herself on congas. This then took her to perform at the famous jazz club “Nalen” in Stockholm.

Ms. Regenthal performed in different constellations with musicians such as guitar player Robert Easley from Canada, on several occasions at crown princess Victoria's birthday at Solliden, and other places in the local area. She has toured extensively in Sweden with her own trio which featured Mattias Simonsson on piano and Marie Fransson on Cello. In 2009 Lola left Gothenburg to study as an exchange student at the jazz department in Zurich, where she met the Swiss/American bassist Jonas Tauber as well as double tenor steel pan player Rudy Smith from Trinidad, and together with Robert Easley, Lola Regenthal Quartet was created. In 2010 they played together on a mini-tour in Sweden involving a radio performance as well as being the opening act for famous singer Tommy Körberg, which was very well received by the audience!

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
