LOLA KIRKE Releases “Sip The Wine” (Rick Danko Cover)

In the midst of a busy 2019 releasing new songs and touring across the country with Alex Cameron, Lola Kirke traveled to the acclaimed producer Matthew E. White’s Spacebomb Studios in Richmond, Virginia and recorded two tracks with White and the Spacebomb House Band (guitarist Alan Parker, pianist Daniel Clarke, bassist Cameron Ralston, drummer Pinson Chanselle). Today, ahead of her appearance at SXSW this week, Kirke releases one of those tracks, “Sip The Wine,” a buoyant cover of one of her favorite artists, Rick Danko, that showcases her unique vocal stylings and represents a different direction in her ever-evolving sound.


“Sip The Wine” is available on all streaming services now via Downtown Records. Her 2018 debut album Heart Head West is also available.
Kirke recently recorded an acoustic session at Relix with violinist Hannah Read, where she performed “Sip The Wine,” as well as Heart Head West album tracks “Turn Away Your Heart” and “Monster.” Check it out HERE.

Lola Kirke will be performing at SXSW this week, playing Willie Nelson’s Luck Reunion alongside Mavis Staples, Steve Earle, Courtney Marie Andrews, Nathaniel Rateliff, Strand of Oaks, and many more; the Spacebomb showcase with Bedouine, Andy Jenkins, Jackie Cohen, and more; and Laneway Festival’s showcase, hosted by Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES.
