Singer-songwriter Sandy Powlik has been turning heads for years. From fronting a 17-piece big band to co-founding and being sole lyricist for original folk rock group, Sonnenblume, to running the show for over a decade as Lola Parks – she continually progresses and evolves. There has never been as much momentum, traction and BUZZ around this leading songstress as there is today.
A multi-award winner, including “Most Outstanding Musician – Vocal Jazz" and “Female Songwriter of the Year” (and The Q’s “Band of the Year” with her first band, Sonnenblume), her 2011 release, Here, garnered three Vancouver Island Music Awards nominations and continues to receive international attention and grace playlists.
She has performed on five continents, led several Western Canada tours with her trio and shared billing with numerous Grammy and Juno award winners and nominees.
Adjectives used to describe Parks’ music include sultry, organic, natural, jazz-infused, smooth, soulful, genuine, honest, evocative, dangerous, and fun.
