Daily Discovery: Friends of Lola, “Waste of Two Good Arms”


Videos by American Songwriter

Friends of Lola are a young Nashville 3-piece with a lot of potential. With sweet harmonies, great lyrics, and a very of-the-moment vibe, we get the sense we’ll be hearing a lot more in the near future. We came across their music after they entered the Durango Boots Sole Performer contest and liked it so much we decided to feature the band.  Do you have a great undiscovered song?
