JELA Short Info

JELA started their career down in Uzes, South of France in september 2010 where Lucas Bernard (singer/guitarist) and Arthur Marechal (drummer) met in high school. They started out playing covers with musician fellows, ranging from The Doors, The Beatles, Radiohead, The Strokes, The Clash, etc.
While studying, they met David Roberts who wrote lyrics and was originally from Manchester, UK. Straight away, surrounding themselves with different musicians on the bass, guitar and keyboard, JELA started out playing their own songs with a very unique style, mixing rock, folk, blues and their wide musical tastes, the whole thing driven by catchy melodies.
After their examinations, at seventeen years old, they decided to leave the sunshine and the cicada songs for the lovely dirty old town of Manchester where they're now based.
There, they wrote around 25 original songs and played as many venues as the city has to offer (Night & Day, the Roadhouse, Kraak Gallery, the Ram, Fuel Cafe, Gullivers, ...) as well as doing residencies (Antwerp Mansion, Live Stockport). They released independantly their first single "No Longer Blind" online in the summer 2013 thanks to Nuno Carvalho production.
In September 2014, after playing with different musicians from various locations, Sam Artigau (Lucas' cousin) joined JELA on the bass in their british odyssey.
They now play an energetic rock set heavily colored by a blues/folk background that will shape into their debut album in 2015 which will also be recorded independantly with Nuno Carvalho behind the desk. They are now planning to tour around the galaxy and beyond, starting this year in the UK.
