Pop Fans Continue to Take a 'Shine' to Lola Spriggs as the Two Time Hollywood Music in Media Award Nominee Returns to the Charts With 'Your One and Only' -- the #1 Most Added Track on the FMQB AC40 Chart Its First Week of Release -- Ahead of Bruno Mars, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 14, 2011) - Her name is Lola, but she's not a showgirl -- yet her fans are clamoring for her to hit the road so they can hear her perform her hot new, easy grooving, super romantic pop single "Your One and Only."

Lola Spriggs' (www.lolaspriggs.com) latest track blew away today's biggest pop superstars the week it was released, becoming the #1 Most Added radio cut on the FMQB AC40 Chart, ahead of Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Avril Lavigne, Kid Rock, Seal and even a comeback song from 80s pop star Julian Lennon.

It's hardly surprising, considering the Shine -- the name of her latest full length album -- that indie pop fans continue to take to the Ottawa based singer/songwriter. In addition to "Your One and Only" and two other new tracks, the collection includes "Nobody But You" (which reached #11 on the FMQB AC40 Chart in 2010) and "I Wanna Love You."

Both songs were nominated for Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMAs) -- "Nobody But You" for Best Adult Contemporary/AAA Song and "I Wanna Love You" for Best Pop Song. The latter earned a prominent mention in Peter Simpson's Big Beat List: 10 Local Songs from 2010, which was published in the Ottawa Citizen. Simpson praised the track's effervescence and wrote that it could make the "Ottawa area single mom a pop star."

Everyone's feeling the same way about the new tunes on Shine, which shows a lighter, high-spirited side of her artistry while also tapping into a diverse array of influences.

Before she begins touring Canada and the U.S. in 2012, Spriggs plans to do a casual launch party for Shine at The Velvet Room in Ottawa on December 21 -- timing it so that she can spread the Christmas spirit to her fans with a live performance of "One Wish." "That song reminds me of all the happy Christmases I had as a child," she says. "It's always been my favorite holiday and the song is a pure celebration."
