Kala Artist - John Atkins

John Atkins got his start as The Ukulele Teacher when a video he made as a joke for a friend went viral in 2011. Within a month, the video had thousands of views and comments, inspiring John to create more videos. A few years later and he has 1,300,000+ subscribers and more than 160 million views.

Creating content for his Youtube channel is now his full-time job, with Lisa Loeb, Grace VanderWaal and Meghan Trainor complimenting his lessons and videos. In 2015, he was handpicked by Mark Ronson to record a new version of “Uptown Funk” at Abbey Road Studios. Originally from Bournemouth, England, John is now based in Los Angeles, adding at least two videos a week to his channel.
