Followed by more than 250,000 fans around the world, their music and videos streamed and viewed by millions, Telula’s shared love of funk is evident in their music. They take inspiration from greats such as Stevie Wonder and modern masters like Vulfpeck, while incorporating their own pop and jazz influences with contemporary twists. Their music is soulful and dynamic, showcasing intricate melodies backed by funky rhythms. Telula’s combination of technical proficiency and artistic expression creates a sound that is both inspiring and energizing. Telula was formed when Lucas Aney and Thomas Jensen met in their first days of college in 2021 and found common ground in their passion for funk music. Over the following year, they built the band and spent countless hours learning how to professionally record, produce, and release music – all out of their dorm. Their dedication and hard work paid off in the creation of a nine-song album, each track showcasing their unique sound and individual proficiency on bass and guitar. Telula released their first album at the early age of 19 and a five-song EP one year later in 2023. Headline and support shows followed late in the year, and in 2024 the band will be featured at major festivals in New York, Texas and Idaho and regional venues around the Northeast US.
