LU KALA IS ON FIRE WITH "NO SMOKE"

July 20, 2020

 

LU KALA, fiery voiced songstress—with signature orange hair to match—is redefining the look and sound of pop.

 

The independent Toronto-based singer-songwriter has written for the likes of Jennifer Hudson and worked with DVSN (Drake, DJ Khaled, Majid Jordan) and Stephen Kozmeniuk (Dua Lipa, Madonna, Lights).

 

KALA's sound is raw, intensely emotive and mercurial with an ability to lean into dance, R&B, rock, soul and pop, as shown in her latest release, No Smoke. Unwilling to vocally bend herself into the box black female performers are expected to exist in, KALA has embraced her distinctive sound, transforming her trajectory as an artist, and as a woman, in the process.

 

With over 1 Million streams across platforms, her releases have landed on official playlists such as Spotify's It's a Bop, Indie Pop Chillout, Morning Commute and New Music Friday Canada, as well as Apple Music's Breaking Pop playlist, Pop Deluxe and Pure Pop Radio. "DCMO" also cracked the top 40 on the Billboard Canada CHR chart after gaining airplay on Top 40 stations across the country. 

 

With the upcoming release of her debut EP, KALA continues venturing into emotional places few dare to go—on or off record. Her songs are unflinching in their tales of personal, hard-earned lessons in love. Romantic disillusionment, identity and self-worth, are all laid-bare with breathtaking, unapologetic power.

 

Check out her latest release, No Smoke, below.
