Lola Rising -- Early Show
Add to Calendar
Lola Rising is an Island Reggae band, also known as “Jahawaiian," a ukulele driven 6-piece with high energy dance rhythms, horns, and soaring guitars. Reminiscent of Dirty Heads, Iration and The Green, Lola Rising has been winning hearts and minds since their inception in 2014. Their debut LP "Westward Bound" (2016) with single “Colorado” saw heavy rotation across their home state and a multitude of college radio stations across the country. Inspired from a song, frontman Paul Medina Guevara once wrote about the passing of his "Lola" (meaning Grandmother in Filipino). Coupled with “Rising" the name evokes images of spirituality while embracing the human condition.
The upcoming EP "Moving Forward" has helped Lola Rising cross new thresholds of creativity by introducing new genres and textures, while still finding roots in their original sound. Inspired from basements of haunted hotels in Wyoming to the beaches of California, this record discusses love, loss, struggle and protecting our Mother Earth by using their vivid lyrics and multi-part vocal harmonies.
We are committed to following all applicable guidance under the Colorado's Re-opening guidance for restaurants. Don't forget your mask!

Inspired from a song Paul once wrote about the passing of his `Lola` (means Grandmother in Filipino), coupled with `Rising` evokes images of spirituality and embraces the human condition. Their dance-able rhythms, honest poetry, and smooth melodic multi-part harmonies makes their music familiar, fun, accessible, vivid, and thought-provoking.
In late 2013, Paul returned from an eight year stint in Japan and joined forces with life-long friends Kevin, Woody (formerly played in the Denver-based reggae/rock band Optimal Frequency), Matt (formerly of the Flash Mob), Sarah (trained Jazz vocalist), and Joe Z (also of Zagriculture).
From the depths of musty parking garages & gangsters in the Tokyo underworld; to fly-fishing the Animas River & crossing the Great Divide, everything inspires us; Lola is on the Rise.
