Lula Wiles
Lula Wiles
Lula Wiles is a band deeply rooted in traditional folk music, but equally deep is their devotion to modern songcraft. They deliver love songs that are at once defiant and heartsick, as well as new contributions to the folk ballad canon and timely explorations of what it means to live in America today. Drawing from the deep wells of traditional old-time and bluegrass, classic country, and contemporary indie-folk-rock, Lula Wiles melds diverse influences to create a harmony-driven sound all their own. The three band members deftly swap instruments and frontwoman duties, with Ellie Buckland (vocals/acoustic guitar/fiddle), Isa Burke (vocals/acoustic and electric guitars/fiddle), and Mali Obomsawin (vocals/acoustic guitar/bass) each contributing singularly expressive vocals, instrumental lines, and songwriting. Onstage, the band gathers tightly around a single microphone for a spirited and emotionally resonant live show, anchored by their powerful three-part harmonies. Currently based in Boston, Lula Wiles released their debut album in May 2016 and have since recorded their sophomore album.

Can you add us to the event when you get a chance?

Since joining forces in 2014, the boys have refined a unique craft of rapid picking, clever arrangements and crisp four-part harmony. They've made a name for themselves with a weekly Thursday residency at Cole's Bar in Logan Square and frequent appearances at storied Chicago venues, The Hideout and Schuba's Tavern. Paying homage to the hard-driving traditional bluegrass they love, these boys light a fire in casual listeners and die hard bluegrass aficionados alike.
