At sixteen, Lola Kirke discovered Gram Parsons and the Cosmic American genre he defined. In spite of being a New Yorker by the way of London, Kirke felt a strong connection to his country-rock sound. "For whatever reason, I thought I could resolve all my problems by just becoming him."
Kirke is no stranger to shape shifting - as an actress with a steadily ascending star, she's had major roles in David Fincher's Gone Girl and Noah Baumbach's Mistress America, as well as the Golden Globe-winning Amazon show Mozart in the Jungle. While less in the fore, her passion for music has stayed constant, with her guitar following her from dressing room to dressing room.
