Tennessee native LOLO (real name Lauren Pritchard) performed several career-spanning tracks for Daytrotter recently.
She set out from Jackson to Los Angeles at the age of 15, gigging around the local bar circuit as a keyboardist in a reggae band. By 16, she was broke and homeless. Just as she was about to pack up and move back home, her close friend, Riley Keough, stepped in and offered a place to stay with her and her mother, Lisa Marie Presley.
From that kind gesture, Pritchard was able to turn her fortunes and became a musical actress. She performed as Ilse in Spring Awakening for two years and later moved to the UK to sign with Universal/Island records. She released her debut album, Wasted in Jackson in 2010, and later signed to DCD2 records in 2013 under her new stage name: LOLO.
In 2015, she released her latest EP, Comeback Queen, while simultaneously composing lyrics and music for the critically acclaimed off-Broadway play Songbird.
