Tell us a little about your background...
​Born in Paris,Texas to a musical family, Lola Batiste whose aunt was a baptist church pianist who played with the intensity of a “Jerry Lee Lewis” had an early influence on Lola's interpretation of a lyric, Lola who attended the catholic church whose choir pianist had a more repressed style began singing hymns with the choir where she fused her aunt's fervent gospel playing with the subdued hymns of the catholic church creating a unique mix of vocal style that leaned more toward a melancholy vibe.

“When I'm performing I can still hear my aunt's music and I can still hear the music from the hymns I used to sing in the catholic church and I really don't try to separate those sounds in my head, I just go with the flow and blend them together to create my own unique melody”, that's the beauty of singing jazz.

Lola Batiste has worked with some of DFW”s finest such as jazz vocalist Victor Cager and James Belk earlier in her career.

In a musical collaboration with songwriter Nico Rizzuto of Cologne, Germany Lola provided the vocals for the creation of “Because You Know Me” a jazzy pop tune that had a lot of airplay in Germany.

Lola has also had the honor of being a member of the prestigious Women's Chorus of Dallas where she sang first soprano under the artistic direction of Melinda Imthurn.​

Lola along with two other actresses portrayed The Supremes in the Marsha Moses musical production of “From Dixie to Broadway” a musical documenting the history of African American music. “I have always admired Diana Ross and when I was cast to perform her songs I was so thrilled!”

Lola Batiste has also worked as an actress in several stage productions such as “ Reveal (a dream tale with music)” that had it's debut at the Kalita Humphrey Theater in Dallas where she portrayed one of three singing dolls that came to life.

Lola Batiste made several TV appearances on the cable show “Around The Town”.

​OTHER INFLUENCES: Listening to such artist as Patti Austin, Billie Holiday, Nancy Wilson and Diana Ross was enough for Lola to learn the importance of authenticity of emotion.

“Every song that I sing I really love and I try to interpret the song in the way that I'm feeling it. I never try to be the image of the artist I adore, I extract from their performance things that enhance my own performance.”

Thanks for adding me on here! I'd like to introduce myself. I'm a jazz saxophone player -- Been one all my life. Started playing gigs in New York City when I was 15 years old. Now I live in Houston, and I released my debut album last year. I'd played on lots of other artists' albums, but I was always more focused on live performances for myself. I'm pretty happy with my album though! If you are interested you can check it out: http://larryslezak.com/blog/buy-the-album/.

If you get a chance, I'd love to learn more about you! Message me back if you have time.
