Lola Coker loves music, and she adores the process of creating things that evoke emotion in other people. She gleans ideas for songs from my day-to-day life, my dreams, and many other kinds of art so that she may channel those ideas into a song and share it with you.
The Senate and General Assembly of New Jersey presented Lola with a Citation, Commendation, and Praise to recognize her achievements. In addition, the Mayor and Council of Burlington Township presented her with a Certificate of Recognition, and the Burlington Township Board of Education presented her with a Congratulations award.
It doesn’t matter how musically talented a person is or isn’t; being able to express oneself via music is wonderful. She was exposed to a wide variety of musical styles throughout her childhood, and it was fortunate for her that she was able to hear how diverse and original music can be.
It’s astonishing that our minds can come up with so many new sounds and combinations, even if there are so many different types of music and subcategories within those types. In the world of music, there are no borders. She is drawn to the field of music because it is such a beautiful art form, and the potential to make a contribution to that beauty is what captivates her.
Lola’s father gave her a PreSonus AudioBox as a present when she was somewhere in the neighbourhood of 13 years old. By putting cover songs on YouTube, she slowly learned what she needed to know to record and make her own music.
She continued to do so on and off over the course of many years until she finally built up the courage to make her own unique beats, and then, ultimately, whole songs.
