Kolo are three chaps called Jon, Steve and Dani.

Originally born as a three piece in Exeter in 2006 when Jon Burnell wrote
a bunch of songs about “all the tramps and slightly weird people who
come into the record shop”, the band played some 200 gigs before being
offered a support slot with American band 3 Doors Down after a phone call
while Jon was quite literally cleaning toilets.

They went on to perform at the O2 academies throughout the UK including
the O2 in London. Kolo recorded their debut EP with British producer Sean
Genockey at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales with the EP being
mixed by the incredible producer Kirk Kelsey before embarking on a
combined excellent adventure and bogus journey across the US, and shifting
some 4000 copies, playing with bands including Mr Hudson, The Rifles and
Infadels. They were also personally invited by Embrace to perform with
Scouting for Girls at the very stylish Proud Galleries in London.

In March 2014 the boys flew out to Nashville TN to record their debut
album with Chris Henderson from American rock band 3 Doors Down who
personally invited KOLO to record their album at his very own studio.
‘Do You Want To Rule The World’ was released worldwide on May 3rd and
was followed by a UK and European tour including a hugely successful tour
of Spain and several festival appearances throughout the UK.

Influenced by the storytelling of great British bands such as The Smiths,
The Jam, and Stereophonics, and sporting a rather large rock sound, the
boys look forward to sweating/dancing/puking all over stages across their
new London home.
