Influences: Bonnie Raitt, Neil Young, Nikki Lane, Margo Price, Jesse Jo Stark, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton
Mustang Lola (Liesbeth Hans) is born and raised in a little town in the east of the Netherlands. As a kid she used to listen to her fathers records of country and folks singers. But as a teenager rock music was far more interesting. These two musical influences formed Mustang Lola as a songwriter. Resulting in songs with a mix of country and folk with a sleazy edge. Or: ‘Sleazy Country’.
With a few detours Mustang Lola ended up in Amsterdam. A city she immediately fell in love with and considers as her biggest inspiration. Most songs she wrote since then are about the people, adventures and – off course – the love she encountered in Amsterdam. That’s also when she started her americana rock band ‘Mustang Medicine’.

Everybody who listened, motivated me, made beauutiful music: My first FAWM was awesome! Such a positive vibe. I'm definitely back next year, I hope you too!! <3
Come on Lola! You can do it!
Thanks Lola, I'm really happy you like Travelin' Man. I should list Dan German as a co-writer, as he introduced me to the phrase A Hunnerd Deaths To Die, One Life To Live. But I'm not gonna. Maybe if he had joined us in FAWM I woulda, but even then. 😉
Thank you for your comment on "Snow." Glad ya liked it! 😀
I sent it to the email listed on the web page you have in your profile. If it didn't make it, I can try again or you can tell me another address to which to send it. Or you can go to my page here at FAWM and send an email to me and then I can respond.

Tut tut, nou nou, wad'n toal! Thanks babes, I love these kinda songs. Cheques was a hoot-anna-half to record. I figure I need to get me a couple leather-jacketed-hoodlums for a band...
Yes, I'm doing my fair share to make the world a better place. I just sent you an email with a lyric.
When I sing, animals scatter, windows shatter, and all of life's joys splatter against the wall and fall to the floor and people scream "No more, no more!"
Thanks so much for going River So Deep! It's great! I wasn't sure about one of the other versions, but we now have 3! And all so totally different. I feel honored!
Of course you'd love it, is like your style, I really like them a lot too, like your songs!
Dankjewel voor je feedback op Rock'n'Roll Song. Ik heb m al het hele weekend inne ko'p.
My favorite Neko Case song is Hold On but your singing on April's Fool sounded like some of her other songs to me.
I don't have anything for sure but thought a bluesy feel. Go for it and I am sure I won't be disappointed at all! Looking forward to it! Thanks
Nice to meet you, too, @mustanglola87. I've listened to all your songs and I have to say, it seems to me you should have a contract with a record company. Your voice is bewitching and your music is captivating and your lyrics are amazing (especially considering you're not writing in your native tongue). I'm blown away and so glad you're part of FAWM! Looking forward to more from you!
Thanks for the nice words about my track 😀 it’s about a couple of things really, i kind of got inspired to write by the political state here at the moment 😀 sounds dull eh? Ha!
@ In Old Napoli Toch?
Hahahaaa! Hij móést er uit. Nog een paar dropjes en mijn keel is Friday Night weer vergeten.
Ondertussen alweer een liedje over mijn favoriete Italiaanse stad.
I'm working on it lol
so nice of you to write you´d buy it, I definitely would buy yours too! 😀
Hahaaaaa, die foto van @max van jou is te gek! Lekker jong bekkie (niet dat je nou zo'n afgeleefde kop hebt hoor!) Hoogtijdagen van ASG, in de tijd dat Cat Shannon elke dinsdag op de planken stond.
Ik speelde ooit één keertje in Backstage Hotel en moest de volgende dag om 06:15 werken dus kon niet lang blijven. Wel heeeeee'mooie liedjes gehoord.
Ho wacht stop een comment van mustanglola? Die profielfoto ken ik, die komt constant langs op m'n FB. *zoek zoek zoek* Ah ja Pakhuis de Zwijger...... Amsterdam Songwriters Guild ! Joepie! Wat leuk dat je FAWM doet. In 2013 zaten we hier met velen vanuit het ASG. Chino van Indian Askin @captainchaos , Thomas, die nu de Open Mic van het ASG in de Koe doet @thomasaram , @michiel , @djsmit , @lukas en meer. Maar de spoeling is behoorlijk dun geworden de laatste jaren. Ikzelf ben zeer actief geweest voor het ASG en heb sinds 2010 vele optredens gefilmd tijdens de open mic https://www.youtube.com/user/asgfans van iedereen. Gestopt in 2016 met hosten en fanatiek volgen van iedereen. Maar deze zaterdag ga ik me even verdiepen in jouw band (heb nu bandcamp opstaan) en de nummers die je voor FAWM doet. Leuk je hier te ontmoeten Liesbeth. En dank voor het luisteren naar mijn deuntjes. Groet, Max
Heh, yea, I'm not planning on doing the music this month
Hey, that song is lyrics only. 😀
I've never heard the term "Sleazy Country" I love it, made me laugh. Have a great FAWM.
Hey Lola! Thanks for the headbanging comment on New Year's Day and happy happy joy joy for Play. I hope to get #3 down today.
Likewise Liesbeth, great music!
I took a 20-year break because after my band broke up I didn't think I could go it alone! Good grief. Regardless, here I am, and glad to be in such good company. Hope you're having a great day.
Any tips? Well... I guess the best tip I can come up with on the spot is that it's a good idea to take the challenge as it is and just write, write, write, no matter what comes out. There's always time to perfect the quick drafts later.
Good luck! 😀
Hey, how's it going! Here's for a great first FAWM!
Welcome! Happy writing!
Hello and welcome to FAWM! Checked your website and am looking forward to hearing more from you here 😀
Welcome to FAWM! Hope you have a great time and write lots of new songs!
Welcome Lola! Good to have you join us.
