Karnataka is a Welsh band that was formed in 1997 by Ian and Rachel Jones. Rachel has since left the band, while Ian steers the helm of the band forward. The band has recently undergone some major changes, including the addition of Haley Griffiths, replacing Lisa Flury on lead vocals, Louie Palmer, replacing Ian Harris on drums, and multi–instrumentalist, Colin Mold replacing Enrico Pinna and Gonzalo Carrera on guitar and keyboards.
