Early life and family

Kirke was raised in New York City from the age of five. Her father, Simon Kirke, was drummer for the rock bands Bad Company and Free. Her mother is Lorraine (née Dellal) Kirke, the owner of Geminola, a vintage boutique in New York City that supplied a number of outfits for the television series Sex and the City. (“Geminola” is an amalgam of the names of Lola and her siblings.) Kirke graduated from Saint Ann’s School in Brooklyn and in 2012 from Bard College.

Her father is of English and Scottish descent (the Kirkes being a junior branch of a family of Nottinghamshire landed gentry, and descending also from the Gibson-Craig baronets) and her mother is Jewish. Kirke’s maternal grandfather, Jack Dellal, was a British businessman of Iraqi-Jewish descent, and her maternal grandmother Zehava Helmer was a former Israeli stewardess; Kirke has described herself as Jewish. Kirke has two older sisters, singer Domino Kirke and actress Jemima Kirke, and an older half-brother from a previous relationship of her mother’s. She is a cousin of curator Alexander Dellal, shoe designer Charlotte Olympia Dellal, and model Alice Dellal.

In April 2022, Third Man released her sophomore LP, Lady for Sale. The album was hailed as “immediately iconic” by AllMusic, and was said to bridge “the gap that once existed between Madonna and the Mandrell Sisters,” by Uncut Magazine . “A new era of sparkle-country is upon us,” declared No Depression. “Lola Kirke is here to usher it in.” “Lyrically, Kirke moves into the top tier of writers,” wrote The Line of Best FitPitchfork gave the album a mixed review, finding both “pure pastiche” and “pure delight” in its “genre-first approach”.

Quotes

I think the merging of high and low culture is so fascinating.

I spend a lot of time doing watercolors and playing music in my apartment.

I’m practicing the oboe. But I don’t play. Just single notes, not an entire piece of music.

I definitely wanted to be famous as a kid, but as I’ve gotten older, I feel less comfortable with it.

I’m the only one in my family with an American accent.

The oboe is the most maddening thing of all time. I’m struggling to play something that my oboe teacher was doing when she was much younger than I am.

The classical music scene was completely unfamiliar to me. It was something that I didn’t have the most fun associations around. A lot of people don’t – they think of older generations and stuffiness. But it’s not. You listen to the Overture of 1812, and you can hear a rock n’ roll catharsis.

We have this idea of artists being on the fringe and being debauched and strange. I don’t think that people who commit themselves to classical arts should be exempt from that.

As somebody who has wanted to be an actor who is very young, I can relate to somebody who has been practicing oboe five days a week since they were very young. The physicality of anything a character does is a tremendous gift.

I will never be good at the oboe. No matter what happens, I will never be good at it because I just don’t have that much time on my hands. I don’t have the gift of going back to being a child and having my brain develop around this instrument.
