Music for fighters, not lovers...
The band is fronted by singer/songwriter Kari Santoro. Supporting her with luscious soundscapes and blazing hooks are lifelong musicians: co-writer Steve Kendall on drums and percussion and co-writer Robin Brooks on guitars. The album was co-written, co-arranged and co-produced by Jez Thomas (The Sunray Estate) in the UK.
During 2008, in addition to playing the Roxy, the Railway Club, the Yale, The Backstage Lounge, The Cottage Bistro, The Fairview and the Purple Crab, lolli headlined NewMusicWest in May and The International Pop Overthrow in August. Early 2009 found lolli shortlisted for SXSW. lolli is currently scheduled to headline Wi-Fest near Seattle in May, 2009 as well as The Vancouver Island Music Business Conference, in June, 2009. As you read this, lolli is on Stand-by for NXNE.
Rooted firmly in reality, these likable musicians aren't fame-seekers; just 4 people who love creating and playing music that crawls into bed with you and eats crackers all night long.
lolli was formerly known as grinConvention
