In Summer of 2017, she performed in Malaga, Spain at the film music festival, MOSMA, with Tyler Bates’ ensemble and the Malaga Symphony Orchestra. After attending the NYU Clive Davis Program for Recorded Music in the summer of 2018, Lola performed live on the Howard Stern Show as the bassist for David Hasselhoff’s performance of David Bowie’s "Heroes."
