The members of indie-rock band Canella love to create. They meet up in the basement, akin to the ones they frequently play in Albany, NY, to write, record, and enjoy each other’s company.
Juliana Castrillón, lead singer and songwriter from Bogotá, Colombia, brings her criss-cross applesauce bedroom acoustic songs to the rest of the band. Bassist Joe Taurone, guitarist Gabe Klingler-Horn, and drummer Dan Carr take the songs in, and output what they think is right, funny, or stupid. This makes them smile and laugh. Once the songs are done, they play them with all of their might on stage. Juliana dances and flails, and the other members quickly follow suit.
Canella loves playing with their fellow Albany bands usually composed of their own band members and other Tummy Rub Records’s musicians, and they have won a couple of awards from the local college radio station WCDB in 2021 and 2022 for ‘Best Song of the Year’. Canella has heavy riffs and pop melodies that they’d love to share with you.
