"One of the most exciting new sounds from this weekend's festival (M.I.A. Fest) was that of KANEHOLLER, who blend jazzy blues with futuristic vibes, creating poignant music that bends time".

KANEHOLLER an electronic-soul duo consisting of singer-songwriter-producing partners Chelsea Tyler and Jon Foster. Formed in Brooklyn, NY, in the summer of 2011, the group now lives in Venice Beach, CA.
KANEHOLLER's musical style weaves a future sound with timeless jazz, blues, and electronic melodies. After meeting they began sharing their musical interests. Over the last few years they cultivated a unique sound that was inspired by Lauryn Hill, Etta James, RJD2, Otis Redding, DJ Shadow, Talking Heads and Portishead.
When asked about their creative process, they explain, "One great thing about music is how personalized it is to each listener. Of course we have stories in mind when writing songs, but each person translates them in their own way. We simply want to make you feel and dance."
KANEHOLLER just released their first volume of music titled "Vol. 1, 2 and 3". Last year they performed at the Made In America festival, completed a full US tour with The Ting Tings and followed up opening for Rae Sremmurd on the Verge Campus Tour. They'll be performing at Air + Style in Los Angeles in Feb, and at Firefly Festival in July. They are currently recording their debut full length album which is expected to be released this coming summer.
"Music's coolest new power couple".
