|Pre-Order and get Bonus Track|
The modern-day power music couple, NOMAD & LOLA, combine their vast musical knowledge and expertise with charisma and steamy chemistry in their debut EP, NOIR, set to release this Friday, Oct. 4th. The husband and wife duo carefully selected five iconic tracks that they re-imagined with a dark pop cinematic twist.
The couple are joined by an all-star cast of consummate musicians on their debut project. The artists performing on the EP include: Phil Lassiter (trumpet player for Prince), Dave Hooper (Drummer for Dave Koz), and Dmitry Gorodetsky (Bassist for Charlie Puth), Richie Pena (Drums/Programmer for Babyface).
Pulling from their incredibly diverse backgrounds, the husband and wife duo have brought their best assets together to create their own style in the reflection of legendary couples, such as Sonny & Cher, Johnny & June and Captain & Tennille. Together, the two united their talents and wide spectrum of musical influences to breath new life into five classic songs from the worlds of rock (Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”) to love ballads from the 40s and 50s (“Besame Mucho” and “Similau”). The EP also includes Nancy Sinatra’s smash 60s single “Bang-Bang” and a mash-up of Nina Simone’s “Summertime” and George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”.
The new NOIR EP, by NOMAD & LOLA, is now available for pre-order on iTunes before its release on October 4th. Anyone who takes advantage of the pre-order on iTunes will receive a free bonus NOMAD & LOLA track, entitled “Lola”.

LOLA hails from the San Fernando Valley, where she grew up performing at a young age. Since grade school, she’s played the leading roles at her local church and school musicals. She was introduced to songwriting by a well-seasoned songwriter, by age 18 she was writing and performing her own songs with a group of talented musicians throughout the local valley dive bar circuit, opening for acts like Gaucho Gil and Sweet.
Lola’s passion for music deepened as she worked and played at LA’s premiere rehearsal studio, CenterStaging, where she was exposed to some of the greatest artists in the world coming through LA, including Steven Tyler, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, P!nk, and everyone in-between. It was at that same studio where she had her start as an On Air Personality/Host for Rehearsals.com and where she met her future bandmate/soulmate, NOMAD.
Today, Lola runs the day to day business for their boutique music library On The Level Music Inc, working closely with music supervisors, directors, post production companies / editors, musicians, singers, as well as other composers. When Lola is not on the road with Nomad, she can be found rolling around the US with Grave Digger and 13 other monster trucks as the host for the very popular Monster Jam Live event show.
