Lolene Everett (born March 12, 1985), also known simply as Lolene, is a British recording artist, songwriter, record producer and performer from Bristol, England.
Lolene was raised by her mother and describes herself as "independent by default" for this reason. While in Bristol, Lolene began singing backing vocals for Martina Topley-Bird (vocalist for Tricky) and also collaborated with local drum and bass pioneer Roni Size.
On relocating to London, Lolene signed a development deal with BMG Records to front their latest girl group. She wrote the group's material, but left shortly after to pursue a solo career and focus on her songwriting. Lolene created her alter ego, Miss Foo Foo, while involved in London's club scene. She describes her created character as "the spoilt, extravert, heightened part of my existence."
Lolene moved to Los Angeles and signed to Beluga Heights/Sony ATV after being discovered by record producer J.R. Rotem (Rihanna, Britney Spears) and his manager Zach Katz. Initially hired as a writer, Lolene began developing her personal sound with the help of Rotem and other producers.
Lolene sings background vocals on the Rick Ross featuring T-Pain single "The Boss". Lolene has collaborated with award winning writers Chris Braide (Cheryl Cole, Jesse McCartney) Andreas Carlsson (Backstreet Boys, Celine Dion) with whom she wrote "Heartache on the Dance Floor" for Janet Leon. She writes with Makeba Riddick (Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce), Evan Bogart (Beyonce, Leona Lewis), Danja (Britney Spears, Nelly Furtado), Harvey Mason, Jr. (Chris Brown, Jordan Sparks), Elva Hsiao ("Wow", "Loving you") "Life is a Dance Floor" for Latin artist Pee Wee and Christina Milian with whom she wrote Teairra Mari's track "Diamonds" featuring Kanye West and write with Christina Milian for a track titled "Invisible".
