EASY LISTENING: Crooners/Vocals, POP: Piano
Lobelia's music has been described as 'music for the soul' and a 'soundtrack for our lives'. Her lyrical stories reach out to the individual listener, drawing them into the lives of her characters. Lobelia eloquently reveals a reflection of her soul in every song she writes.
Her first song, written at the age of five for a cultural arts fair, won regional and national recognition in 1978. Her appetite for musical instruments is extraordinary, as she plays nine, although her assistant producer considers her voice her most expressive and versatile.
Lobelia's ambition to succeed in the music business on her own terms has remained constant throughout her career. She began performing in various choirs and bands at the age of eight, but quickly developed her own unique songwriting skills and vocal style.
In 1992 she began performing weekly open mic's at a Virginia club where her audience steadily increased from a handful to a packed house. Her set consisted entirely of original material, which demonstrated to Lobelia her talent to write compelling songs was a passion worth sharing.
In 1993 Lobelia moved to Morgantown West Virginia where a small, but thriving music scene was flourishing. There she formed a band called Lobelia, and began experimenting with different styles of music. They enjoyed local success, but after the departure of the Japanese bassist, Takashi Chiba, the band called it quits.
During a long visit to her parents in Nebraska, Lobelia met and began recording with a local engineer named Dan Kane. Kane was so impressed with her vocals and songwriting ability that he played her demo for one of his clients, a producer from Omaha named James Marlin. Marlin instantly fell in love with Lobelia's voice, and suggested to Kane that he would like to front the capitol to produce a full-length CD with her, sight unseen.
Recorded in three months, Solitary World is a thirteen song emotional roller coaster. It's universal themes and soothing melodies make it appealing to a wide audience. KNEN, a mainstream pop radio station in Norfolk NE, was the first to begin playing the CD. After the first few days requests began pouring into the station for Lobelia's music. Sight unseen, they loved her songs too.
After Lobelia's illness and her struggle with Grave's Disease life began falling apart. She lost her voice for three months and had to cancell all shows and appearances and as a result Solitary World never quite made it off the ground. Undaunted, Lobelia began playing with new musicians and then moved to Montreal where she met and began recording with a Goth Metal band called Ikon Eon. It was around this same time that she was featured for the first time in Billboard Magazine and began to receive emails and phone calls with offers to do another CD. Deciding that she wanted her new CD to be personal and unmistakably "Lobelia" she declined the offers and began working on the recording with M.G., the engineer and guitar player for Ikon Eon at Lost Souls studio. Black and Blue and Grey All Over is pure raw emotion. It is scheduled to be released late summer. With songs like "Why This, why now?" and "Taste" listeners are sure to be captivated by the honest tales of real life that this contemporary storyteller weaves.
