Seldom has gentleness sounded so energetic and vulnerability so strong.
LOTA projects approachable stories under the sign of the zeitgeist onto spherical sound surfaces - they deal with interpersonal relationships, escapism and longing, paired with the attempt to break free from social conventions.
From an early age, Cologne-based singer, songwriter and producer Lotta Holtei was already singing in a children's choir at the age of four, followed by her first hour of piano lessons two years later. In the course of her youth, she also learned the flute, clarinet and guitar.
She has remained true to the piano to this day. So she also ended up as an instrumentalist in band projects, among others with her childhood friend Jules Ahoi.
On May 14, 2021 the debut EP "bold" of the songwriter was released, on which she wrote and arranged all songs herself.
LOTA was nominated for the Pop NRW Award in 2021 and was part of the c/o Pop Festival, as well as the Cologne Music Week in 2021.
Her first tour took place in Autumn 2021 in which she and her band performed in ten cities all over Germany.
