Bio

Jeanette and Fortier met in Los Angeles in the summer of 2011, both playing with the group Your Dads Kids for a year until dismantling in the summer of 2012. The two continued to write songs, and were soon joined by drummer Ameenah Kaplan and guitarist Mike Wendland to complete the line-up of KULA.

 This experienced foursome comes together after having played with a wide variety of artists including Rihanna, Adam Lambert, Ty Taylor, Macy Gray, Brenda Lee Eager, and Isiah "Ikey" Owens. The resulting sound of this unique foursome is a blend of rock and soul with progressive compositions, innovative rhythms and tasteful obscurity. 

 KULA has been playing the LA circuit for 4 years making appearances at El Cid, Silverlake Lounge, Harvard & Stone, Boardner's, The Mint, Molly Malone's, Loaded, The Good Hurt, Lot 1, Skinny's, Kulak's Woodshed, Obrien's Pub, Room 5, Old Towne Pub, State Social House, The Dresden, The House of Blues, Whisky A Go-Go, the King King, Dragonfly, and more...

 In May 2015, Kaplan relocated to Atlanta after writing, recording, and performing with KULA for 2 years. Ryan Janke, the super-human rhythm purveyor, has since assumed drumming duties for the band. KULA independently records at Beer City Studios in Van Nuys, CA operated by Wendland. Their debut self-titled EP was released in February of 2014. Their sophomore release "KULA II" was released in August of 2015.
