About New Politics (@NewPolitics)

The members of New Politics—David Boyd [lead vocals, guitar], Søren Hansen [bass, guitar, keys, programming] who came to Brooklyn via Denmark, and NY native Louis Vecchio [drums] – broke into the scene with their commercial knockout, “Harlem,” from their album A Bad Girl in Harlem, which landed on multiple trailers for the film Frozen as well as garnering placements for “America’s Got Talent,” Microsoft, and Taco Bell.

About LOLO (@lolomusic)

From Jackson, TN, LOLO is a show-stopping singer who has “so much music flowing through [her] that it fills two people” (Associated Press). She has proven herself a venerable songwriter, from penning hits for Panic! At The Disco’s recent #1 blockbuster album to writing a New York Times raved about off-Broadway musical, “Songbird” —  a perfect segue from LOLO’s past role as the originator of Ilse in the critically-acclaimed smash musical “Spring Awakening.”  Her album, In Loving Memory of When I Gave a Shit, is a come-to-Jesus moment for the songstress who moved back to Tennessee after exploring her path on the stages of New York and time in London – a literal reflection of LOLO’s journey on the road back home, which paints the picture of a woman who is finally able to shine and be her true self. With a daring and emotionally charged voice, her music evokes a hot southern night – rough around the edges but with a velvety quality that soothes the soul.
