Koa was formed in 2012 at Belmont University by Chase Bader (Vocals and acoustic guitar) and Conor Kelly (Lead guitar). After writing the EP “Cool It Down”, members Ryan Ladd (Bass), Will Youngclaus (Drums), Alex Mathews (Saxophone), and Ryan McClanahan (Percussion) came together to form the beach-rock sound that is Koa. They have been gaining even more fan attention with their debut single, “Cool It Down” reaching over 11,000 views on Soundcloud. Recently Ryan McClanahan was added as a full time member playing percussion. Koa is currently touring the Southeast promoting their latest release “False Calls,” the upcoming single off their future fall full length release. Come out and see Koa live!
