“Wherever You Go” – written by Lola Lennox alongside Andy Stochansky and Hailey Collier – showcases Lola’s powerful voice and aptitude for songwriting. I spired by Lola’s own experience of moving far from home and embarking on a life elsewhere while managing long-distance relationships with those she loves.”Wherever You Go” is a reminder that despite the challenges of feeling isolated, we can all feel connected if we use a little imagination.
“I am used to the feeling of having my heart in two places. It’s a transient emotion that stretches across cities and oceans.” Says Lola “I wrote “Wherever You Go ” about missing people. I moved to LA a few years ago, leaving behind friends, family, and memories. Whilst navigating a new life in America I clung to the people I left behind, losing them was a hard part of growing up and pursuing my dreams in music. Despite the song reflecting the challenges of longing. I wanted the music to feel positive and express the excitement that comes with having people in your life to love. Managing long-distance relationships is a lesson in letting go and being receptive to whatever outcome life hands you, that openness is the place the music came from. Over time I’ve seen how the message of ‘Wherever You Go ‘ has evolved whilst the world has changed so much. In 2020 we all had to adopt a life far apart from those we love.”
Music has been in Lola’s blood from as long as she can remember. She has played the piano and sung from seven years old, written songs from the age of fifteen, and earned a place at The Royal Academy of Music. 2020 saw Lola duet with her mother Annie Lennox,for their much talked about performance of “There Must Be An Angel ” for Global Citizen One World: Together At Home to an audience of over 270 million viewers
