Our Song of the Day is a premiere track from Southeast Oklahoma native Levi Parham whose souther roots course through his music taking influences from the delta blues, country, folk, soul and gospel. Lola My Lovely features on his forthcoming release Avalon Drive.
Sometimes inspiration strikes in the strangest of ways, and this particular song came together thanks to Parham’s elusive cat Lola during a lazy day of playing guitar around the house. Lola, who remains invisible nearly constantly, distrusting of everyone and only coming out at night when no one is around to witness it, was perched atop her tall cat tower on this day, in the middle of the afternoon, unfazed by the presence of this person or this guitar. This moment turned into “Lola My Lovely,” an exploration of unrequited love and the experience of wanting to be with someone who won’t quite let you, yet who never really goes away.
