Written by Roger Waters as a protest song against rigid schooling, the song was released by Pink Floyd on their album, The Wall, in 1979. The cover features master guitarist NOMAD on the electric guitar solo. LOLA provides the powerhouse vocals on this rendition.
Working side by side with Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds for over a decade as his music director and guitarist, NOMAD’S music credits read like the guest-list at the GRAMMYS, working with various artists, such as Rodney Jerkins, David Foster, Walter A., Tommy Simms, Bernie Herms, Celine Dion, Aretha Franklin, Justin Beiber, Colbie Caillat, Josh Groban, Stevie Wonder, Sting, Toby Mac, and Leslie Odom Jr.
NOMAD’s compositions are in circulation in over 300 TV shows, commercials, films, as well as chart-topping albums. In his career, he’s been fortunate enough to work with iconic composers such as Danny Elfman (Men in Black 3), John Powell (Ferdinand, Happy Feet 1 & 2, Mr. & Mrs. Smith), and A.R. Rahman.
Culminating a lifetime of experience, NOMAD’s latest endeavor is CAREER MUSICIAN; a podcast highlighting interviews with other industry professionals, providing insight and practical wisdom for the next generation of aspiring career musicians.
LOLA hails from the San Fernando Valley, where she grew up performing at a young age. Since grade school, she’s played the leading roles at her local church and school musicals. She was introduced to songwriting by a well-seasoned songwriter, by age 18 she was writing and performing her own songs with a group of talented musicians throughout the local valley dive bar circuit, opening for acts like Gaucho Gil and Sweet.
Lola’s passion for music deepened as she worked and played at LA’s premiere rehearsal studio, CenterStaging, where she was exposed to some of the greatest artists in the world coming through LA, including Steven Tyler, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, P!nk, and everyone in-between. It was at that same studio where she had her start as an On Air Personality/Host for Rehearsals.com and where she met her future bandmate/soulmate, NOMAD.
Today, Lola runs the day-to-day business for their boutique music library On The Level Music Inc, working closely with music supervisors, directors, post production companies/editors, musicians, singers, as well as other composers. When Lola is not on the road with Nomad, she can be found rolling around the US with Grave Digger and 13 other monster trucks as the host for the very popular Monster Jam Live event show.
