Title - 'Red Hot' [Vinyl LP]
Artist - Lola Bates

For those not in the know, 17 year-old Lola Bates is a crazy talented American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, from Los Angeles.

She is also a classically trained pianist, and has performed works by Chopin, Rachmaninov, Debussy, and many others, to audiences at myriad events; including semi-annual recitals in a college environment at UCLA since the age of five.

While continuing her classical piano studies, Bates joined local School of Rock Show Band at the age of twelve, to hone her skills as a musician and performer.

An undeniable curiosity and passion for music led Lola to study voice, electric bass, guitar, and percussion – all of which she performs on her debut album, Red Hot (out now via Human Made Records).

Leading up to the album debut and working entirely on her own, Bates wrote the music, lyrics and recorded demos for this album via a collaboration with her father, composer/producer Tyler Bates and Grammy-winning engineer/producer/mixer Robert Carranza.

Furthermore, it was a familiar experience in this setting as the young Bates was tasked at age 12 to record piano work on the Marvel franchise film 'Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol.1' and again in 2017 recorded her piano work for 'Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2' at Abbey Road Studios in London with the London Symphony Orchestra!

Side A:
1. 'Still a Mess'
2. 'Hey Hey Hey'
3. 'Lost in the City'
4. 'I'm Gonna Lose You'

Side B:
5. 'Red Hot'
6. 'The F**k You Song'
7. 'That's Life'
8. 'The Day That I Walked'

The debut album, which arrived here as a wondrous vinyl LP (although they missed a trick by not producing it in red, me thinks!), once placed on the turntable (which, come on now, is the only way to listen to music) begins with the mid tempo countrified Sheryl Crowesque swagger of 'Still a Mess' and backs that up with the more frenetically paced 'Hey Hey Hey.'

With both those tracks having featured in the pilot episode of USA network’s 'The Purge' TV series, next up is one of my own personal favorites here on this quite spectacular and evoking new album, the late night underground blues/jazz piano bar vibe of 'Lost in the City' (featuring Frank Macchia on Sax).

The stunningly haunting ballad 'I'm Gonna Lose You' is next and is followed by the raucous title track 'Red Hot' (featuring David Rallicke on Trombone). The storytelling of a love gone horribly wrong is brought forth within 'The F**k You Song' (featuring Rallicke on sax and Blake Cooper on Tuba) with the joyful road trip, sun shining, windows down 'That's Life' along next (featuring Rallicke on Sax, Michael Rozon on Pedal Steel, and her father, Tyler on Banjo).

Rounding out this quite excellent smorgasbord of musical thoughts, wishes, hopes, ambitions and forthright opinions is the near six minute long, and goose bump-inducing piano ballad 'The Day That I Walked.'

Once again featuring Rallicke on Sax and Scott Seiver on Drums, it's most definitely a track that will lyrically resonate with you long after it has finished playing, trust me.
