King Of Hearts and kulaBrands Music, Forge New Fan Driven Music Model and new sound “Modern Classic Rock”
“We’re so excited to be back in the studio again!” says King of Hearts founding member, Tommy Funderburk. The group’s lead vocalist has good reason to be elated. However, it’s not just because King Of Hearts has recorded a fabulous new album, it’s rather that they are recording at all!”
Funderburk explains, “After some really disappointing experiences with traditional labels, we teamed up with a truly revolutionary crowd funding company kulaBrands, that funded our studio and production time, allowing the band to record the basic tracks for the new album in Jonathan Cain’s (Journey) new, state-of-the art studio in Nashville and added some very special friends at producer/ engineer/keyboardist, CJ Vanston’s TreeHouse studios in Los Angeles. On top of that, kulabrands will also be driving social media marketing and sales in a really passionate way, now and well into the future. Kula was exactly what we were looking for.”

As if this line up of some of the best of the best in classic rock isn’t enough, just as the band was wrapping up the final songs for mastering, one of the greatest guitarist in the industry stopped by the studio and now it’s official…Jeffrey “Skunk” Baxter, known for his stints in the rock bands Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers during the 1970s, will be joining King of Hearts live on stage to play a few hit songs from the past on July 12th…just one more reason not to miss this epic event. King of Hearts is going to Rock the Canyon!!!
Band manager, George Nunes, former VP Sales & Marketing Capital records says, “If you were to mix the sound of the Eagles, Don Henley, Bruce Hornsby, Toto and Def Leppard with a splash of Keith Emerson and Coldplay, what would that sound like?” It sounds awesome! We started referring to it as Modern Classic Rock because of all the different elements and textures to the music we were creating.”
