LOLA - Lovable Outrageous Loud Ambitious - was originally made up of of Jess, Amba-Hollie Wood, Lauren Lindsey and Linzi. Despite Megan replacing Linzi, the future of the band was short-lived.

2015: In September, Megan told to FUBAR Radio about plans to record her debut solo single: "It's going to be a cover and more of a house tune so when I go to the clubs I will be performing and hopefully things go well. But that is what I've always wanted to do, I love singing, I've trained my whole life and that's my aim."
