After two critically acclaimed albums released under the stage-name Lole, the Swiss artist was able to take her
particular brand of folk music beyond the borders of her own country (France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and Scandinavia) as a headliner or as an opening act for renowned artists such as Joe Cocker, Paul Simon, Donovan, Marianne Faithfull, Nouvelle Vague…)
Olivia Pedroli is now back with “The Den” an intriguing new record at the crossroads between classical, folk
and experimental, entirely produced in Reykjavik, by Valgeir Sigurðsson, the Icelandic producer well-known for
his collaborations with Björk, Camille, CocoRosie, Bonnie Prince Billy, etc.
This new recording will be released under her real name, Olivia Pedroli. It shows the evolution of her compositions and voice towards more personal and enchanting horizons.

Avec deux albums encensés par la critique et réalisés sous le nom de Lole, l’artiste suisse a eu l’occasion de faire
voyager sa musique bien plus loin que les frontières de
son propre pays (France, Allemagne, Belgique Scandinavie, Pays-Bas), en tant que tête d’affiche ou en première partie de Marianne Faithfull, Alain Bashung, Joe Cocker, Paul Simon ou Nouvelle Vague.

Olivia Pedroli revient aujourd’hui au devant de la scène
avec « The Den » album intriguant aux frontières entre
folk, classique, et expérimental, entièrement produit à
Reykjavik par Valgeir Sigurðsson, producteur islandais et
complice de Björk, Camille, ou encore CocoRosie.
La sortie de ce nouvel opus sous son vrai nom, marque
ainsi l’évolution des compositions et de la voix d’Olivia
Pedroli vers des horizons résolument personnels et
