Who is...

LU KALA

 

LU KALA is a singer-songwriter with a unique approach to pop music. Her voice is quirky, jagged and consistently breaks boundaries with its soaring peaks. She challenges listeners with bubblegum-tuned ears by delivering catchy melodies, and honest lyrics sung in her own idiosyncratic style.

Her professional music career began in 2013 when she co-wrote a song with the Canadian R&B duo, DVSN and Stephen Kozmeniuk. The song was pitched, and placed on Jennifer Hudson’s third studio album JHUD (2014). Since then, LU has expanded her professional network, and has worked tirelessly at building her career as an artist. Her distinct sound, inventive songwriting, and vivacity have landed her in rooms with industry vets such as BabyFace.

2018 has been one of LU’s busiest years yet. A few of her recent accomplishments include: being featured in AfroPunk magazine alongside Karena Evans and DJ Lissa Monet, placing in the top 3 for the It’s Your Shot Canada-wide talent competition, participating in Canadian Music Week, performing at TD Celebrates the Junos and attending a writing workshop with BabyFace, James Fauntleroy, and MarcLo.

LU just released her debut single titled DCMO (Don’t Count Me Out). While writing the record, honesty was her secret weapon. She expresses her vulnerabilities in a way that will really resonate with listeners. It’s a song that demonstrates her musical ability, and solidifies her presence among those to watch in 2018.

Seen On

 

 
 
Throughout my whole life I have always been counted out whether that was from men, friends and the music industry. I felt like people always looked past me and under-minded my potential often questioning how I looked and whether I was marketable. DCMO (Don’t Count Me Out) is my way of reclaiming my power and showing the world that yes, I do belong. There is room for everyone.
