The man & brainchild behind Kaela Woods. His vintage ride was what inspired this entire band of friends to begin embarking on projects together. You'll find him behind the wheel playing music from his specially curated playlist for the couples on their wedding day or on stage with his guitar and partner-in-crime, playing their unique blend of hip-hop, soul, funk and jazz. Most days, he's busy behind the console playing lead engineer as part of The Susuwatari Brothers or making musical magic as guitarist of ambient post-rock darlings Giants Must Fall.

Since young, Giwon enjoyed humming along to music and had a great interest and natural flair in performing. But it was only after performing for the first time on stage at her secondary school did she realise her potential in singing. From then on she continued to perform in various school/church events and charity concerts She later joined Raffles Jazz Club during her college years & at the end of 2013, after much encouragement from her friends, Giwon started her own YouTube Channel which has gathered up a fairly significant number of views and subscribers for a new channel.
Now part of the eclectic collective known as Kaela Woods, she continues to sing at weddings and private events when she's not busy producing her next YouTube hit. Check out her videos here.
