KUWALLA is four versatile musicians - Kyle Sain (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Brian Huynh (Lead Guitar, Vocals), Marty Griffin (Drums), and Danny Leserman (Bass, Keyboard). Out of the musical melting pot of Southern California, they grab influence from the music that moved them growing up, from indie alternative and hard rock, to punk and blues. All were raised on the music of their environment.Starting in 2018, Kuwalla has been playing shows up and down the west coast from Seattle to San Diego. They play regularly for the House of Blues Anaheim, tightly packed clubs and bars in Santa Monica, venues in Los Angeles like The Roxy; The Silverlake Lounge; and the Resident LA; and play with bands like LAW; Sincerely, Me; That Lying Bitch; and Bristol to Memory just to name a few.Kuwalla is currently touring the west coast and working toward the 2020 release of their full length album.

Former Broadway musical theatre performer turned drummer, Ginger created her Los Angeles based band in 2008. It was then an original rock band with songs she wrote as a singer with various guitarists. Overtime it morphed into a blues/rock cover band, and now finally a blend of both originals and covers from the 1960s to today. The 7 piece band plays everything from Ike and Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Bonnie Raitt, and David Bowie to Portugal The Man. Sometimes the band is broken down into a trio, Ginger's Blues Trio for a still electric, yet toned down acoustic version. Why should you watch and listen? Because as Los Angeles reviewer James Hebron from 405 East said, "Ginger, the little firecracker with a lot of soul, has a heavy burned emotional vocal breach that can horse-kick any bad attitude.
