Killer Kaya
Killer Kaya
Killer Kaya is a six piece psychedelic and funk outfit based out of Santa Barbara, California. Named after a rather large house cat, Killer Kaya has a 60’s era psychedelic sound with funk and soul elements and is composed of Apoorva Chiplunkar on vocals, Zach Rengert on guitar/drums, Eric Engel on drums/guitar, Alex Pavellas on bass, Cory Lund on trumpet and keys, and Josh Sheltzer on saxophone. The lovechild of scientists and hippies, Killer Kaya is reminiscent of the days where flower children roamed free and incense swirled about in whimsical billows. Sun soaked melodic threads run through Killer Kaya’s rainbow prism of sound, evocative of bands like Janis Joplin and Big Brother and The Holding Company and Jefferson Airplane.


Killer Kaya released their first EP titled Cigarette Echolocation in 2015 and their first full length album, 29 Lives in August 2017. Having played throughout the Central Coast and Los Angeles areas, Killer Kaya has also played with notable musicians like funk legend Shuggie Otis and Chad Smith of The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Having made their festival debut at Starry Nites Festival alongside acts like The Kills, The Dandy Warhols, Cat Power, and Teenage Fanclub this March, Killer Kaya also performed at the 2017 Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival and with SF based rockers Gabby Lala & Snow Angel through the Central Coast and Northern California areas in fall 2017. Killer Kaya will be recording new material in early 2018 and will be playing dates throughout the Southern & Northern California areas.
