Lola Tried

Austin, Texas

Forming in Austin, Texas in the summer of 2015, Lola Tried began as a project started by local singer/songwriter Lauren Burton. After meeting Ray Garza (Lead Guitar, Keys) in August 2015, she decided to form a full band project, adding Ray Flynt on drums and Greg Spencer on bass. Taking influence from the likes of Swearin' and Lemuria, Lola Tried blends melodic vocals with the grittiness of modern indie rock. After spending the summer in the studio, Lola Tried released "Popsicle Queen" in February 2017.

On paper, Lola Tried is one of many pop/indie rock bands in Austin. But as soon as you turn on any of their tunes, it’s easy to tell they’ve got something unique. Their recent release Popsicle Queen is a tight collection of 5 songs that have a youthful energy that can’t be ignored.
