Growing up in California and now based in Liverpool, Sola has begun to make a name for herself as a new electronic R&B/dark pop artist to watch. After winning War Child’s Songs of War 2018 songwriting competition and being selected as one of the Top 20 LIMF Academy Artists 2017 for the Liverpool International Music Festival, Sola has even worked one-on-one with Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney and is currently collaborating with Earth, Wind, and Fire musical director Mo Pleasure. Sola combines the electronic sounds of BANKS and NAO with the emotional conviction of Emilie Nicolas and SZA.
“I’m hoping to learn more about myself as a music artist and what I have to offer sonically and creatively to the scene. I hope to be able to branch out of my current creative process and learn about the best ways to access frequent collaborators that can help further my songwriting and production abilities, including contacting publishers and labels with a view to securing a deal, and also the best way to network with promoters and contact people involved with booking artists for tours and larger gigs. I also hope to seek advice on honing my sound in order to deliver a cohesive project, allowing me to align myself with similar artists and scenes. I’m looking forward to further developing my own unique sound.”
