Istanbul-born-and-raised Kutsal is an international artist and a dynamic rock singer and songwriter with powerful lyrics who lives in Los Angeles and has released four albums so far. Kutsal formed several cover rock bands and sang lead in shows in clubs and concerts all over Turkey. Soon she thought it was time to fly with her own wings and began writing songs for her own album. Her debut album: "Susuzlugun Gecti Mi" was released in September, 2001 from TMC Records. Two songs from this album: "Gozlerim Agliyor" and "Birak Kirilsinlar" hit the charts and the videos were played on the music TV in Turkey. Her third single, "Ruya," was loved by crowds and became her biggest hit. Kutsal performed in "Gokten Dusen Hazine," an Austrian-Turkish movie as a rock-star and two of her songs: "Birak Kirilsinlar" and "Bu Kadinlar Askin Degil" was selected to be on the soundtrack. Right after moving to Los Angeles in late 2003, she started working on her second & third album, at the same time. This was a huge challenge, since she decided to record the album in both Turkish and English. After so much hard work, her second album: NAKED which was produced by Jimmy Waldo and Alper Cakir was released in 2008. She has worked with several great musicians and GRAMMY-winning sound engineers on this album. And with songs from NAKED, she performed at the famous writer Reza Aslan's book release party in Los Angeles. Kutsal then released her third album "Ç?r?lç?plak" in Turkey, and she has played gigs both in the U.S. and in Turkey for her two albums: "Naked" & "Cirilciplak". She shot two videos from this album and her second video to her song "Resimler" was shot in downtown Los Angeles. In 2010-2011 Kutsal worked on her 4th release, an EP and it is soon to be released. This EP "Kalbimin Aydinlik Yuzu" has been recorded both in the U.S. and in Turkey, by producers Emir Isilay and Orkun Tunc. The EP is mastered by the GRAMMY-winning sound engineer, Evren Goknar. Kutsal has shot three videos from this album; her first being to the Paul Anka song "Papa" covered in Turkish. In the video, she is walking in her wedding dress on the streets of Los Angeles. Kutsal is proud to be an international artist and her songs are being listened to in many countries. She divides her time by promoting her albums in both the U.S. and Turkey through press releases and concerts.
