Bio
At sixteen, Lola Kirke discovered Gram Parsons and the Cosmic American genre he defined. In spite of being a New Yorker by way of London, Kirke felt a strong connection to his Country-Rock sound. “For whatever reason, I thought I could resolve all my problems by just becoming him.”

Kirke is no stranger to shape shifting—as an actress with a steadily ascending star, she’s had major roles in David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” and Noah Baumbach’s “Mistress America,” as well as the Golden Globe-winning Amazon show “Mozart in the Jungle.” While less in the fore, her passion for music has stayed constant, with her guitar following her from dressing room to dressing room.

Born to a musical family (her father is Simon Kirke, drummer of Bad Company and Free, and her sister is singer-songwriter Domino Kirke), Lola embarked on her own musical journey with her four track EP released in 2016.

Tracked live to tape in East Los Angeles and produced by frequent collaborator Wyndham Garnett (Elvis Perkins in Dearland, WYNDHAM) her debut LP, Heart Head West, asserts her as part of the artistic tradition she holds so dear: delivering her own heart, laid bare for someone else to hear as theirs. “It’s a really personal record about basically everything I thought about in 2017–time, family, loss, social injustice, sex, drinking, longing—essentially everything I’d talk about with a close friend for 40 minutes.”

Heart Head West will be released August 10th, 2018 via Downtown Records.

"Lola Kirke is an example of an artist making music because she needs to be, in a far deeper sense than a career — in the sense of someone who, all other motivations aside, has something to say and stories to tell: about gender, power, pain, loneliness and joy." - Paper Mag

"Sexy Song" music video debut from Harper's Bazaar

"Monster" currently making the rounds at non-com and AAA radio

"Make no mistake, while the album does flirt with moments of overwhelming sorrow, it is much more complex than that. Shirking the idea of an entire album dedicated to the mournful, sad-eyed mores you’d expect from traditional steel guitar country, there is ample joy and feeling in Heart Head West. And it's all imbued with the genre’s listlessness and spirit of mischief."
