Featured Artist interview: Lola Parks (E36)

About: Lola Parks from Victoria (CA)
"Lola is smooth and funky, her onstage presence dynamic, her songwriting compelling, her sound ever-evolving, her voice immaculate. After a short hiatus from music to pursue academia, she is now able to dedicate all of her focus and energy on her musical career." (from official website)

1). Who would you like to meet/play on the same stage one day? 
 I'd love to share a stage with John Mayer, harmonize vocally; Paul Simon would be amazing, so many would be fun: Ben Harper, Black Crowes, The Police, Holly Cole, Tragically Hip, Ani DiFranco, Bon Iver, anyone i could harmonize with, scat to or rock out with:)

3). What place in the world would you most like to visit with a gig/concert?
 I'd enjoy gigging at the Apollo or Carnegie Hall in NYC as well as playing around Nashville

4). What single song influenced you the most, or sticks out to you the most?
 A Song For You by The Carpenters holds a dear place in my heart 

5). When are you going to retire and if yes - what you're going to do then?
Retirement is likely figment only. i will always hope to play and write music and write non-musically, and have a cabin or house in the woods near a lake, and spend half the year somewhere like Indonesia, Nepal or Spanish-speaking.
