BUEL is an indie-pop artist based in Los Angeles. She started singing when she was 4 and went on to write/arrange her own songs soon after. She started to play in public when she was 12, first playing piano, and then singing as a member of the school band. Around the same time, she also began writing short stories and essays that were eventually published in her school's magazines as well as local newspapers. These compositions would go on to become the source for some of her cryptic lyrics. She taught herself how to play guitar when 15, drawing inspiration from Sixpence None The Richer, The Cranberries, Nirvana, and Mazzy Star. These bands continue to have an influence on BUEL's musical palate. BUEL spent most of her high school years playing cover songs, while not playing many originals. Eventually, she finally played her original compositions as a singer/songwriter in the early years of college and formed her own band named Boot.
Despite gaining some attention from local media, BUEL decided she didn't want to live in Turkey and gave herself the stage name BUEL, with the intention of launching a music career outside of Turkey. She released a single with an accompanying video entitled Peace of Mind in 2015, about 2 months before she graduated from college. While making plans to move to the United States after graduation, the track caught the attention of a music manager from Dayton, Ohio. Upon connecting BUEL with a label and a producer, this was BUEL's first foray into the American music business. After living an adventurous 5 months in Ohio, BUEL was able to build a considerable following in Dayton. While she loved the opportunities this presented her, BUEL always knew that the heart and soul of the music business was in Los Angeles. Deciding to a take a "hit the ground running" approach, she played live in LA the night she moved to the city. Outside of Los Angeles, BUEL has also had the privilege of sharing her music in Miami, New York, Austin, Orlando, Ohio, and Arizona at various bars, clubs, and festivals.
Currently, BUEL is working on her EP, slated for release in early 2020.
