Daniel Hutchens and Eric Carter met each other when they were eight years old. They solidified their early friendship based on a mutual love of baseball, comic books, and rock n roll music. They grew up in West Virginia; much time during their high school years was spent on Skull Run Road, where Eric's family lived, a few miles outside Ravenswood. The boys recall that road as being the site of their first garage band practices. After high school, they started getting a little more serious about their blossoming songwriting partnership. Their road wound through Huntington, WV, and eventually on to Athens, GA, which they soon came to call home. They continued to concentrate on their songwriting, and by the early 90's they had a catalogue of over 300 compositions. By this time Hutchens and Carter had given their musical collaboration a "band name": Bloodkin.
Tula is a five piece progressive funk-rock band consisting of two guitars, drums, bass and a saxophone. Tula was first formed in Chicago by frontman Brian Duggan as the Brian Duggan Project in 2008. After touring and preforming in the Midwest for a few years, Duggan re-rooted the band to Denver and formed a permanent cast of musicians that makes up present day Tula. The group’s organic and unique style brings a refreshing diverse sound to the traditional jam band setup, and their live shows bring even the most reserved attendees to the dance floor as they infuse a variety of genres together from funky dance music to blues, reggae and of course, the at the bands core, rock n’ roll.
The Denver band spent the winter working on their first full-length album, Follow the Beast Inside, recorded at Scanhope Sound in Colorado with mastermind producer Joshua Fairman. Fairman has also produced and engineered albums for The New Mastersounds.and The Motet, respectively.
