Kendra McKinley is a San Francisco Bay Area singer, songwriter and bandleader whose songs burst with color, wonder, sensuality and wit. Finger painting with the sounds of chamber pop, jazz, soul and psychedelia, McKinley draws from a deep well of empathy. Whether she’s performing solo with a guitar and a looping pedal, fronting a full funk band, or collaborating with artists both local and around the globe, McKinley’s confident, honeyed voice enacts a gravitational pull on all who hear it.
“Her music is unexpected – experimental folk that is soaked in the provocative iciness of Iceland. There is a bit of Björk but it shares striking similarities to Washington state artist Briana Marela. From her debut album, Psychic Translation, her single “Aspens” is surprisingly stunning and intimate, something you would expect to hear from a veteran artist. Watch out for this band.” – Ben Yung, the Revue.
“Boundary-pushing singer-songwriter Ana Lete wooed those in attendance at the District Coffee House with her heartfelt and intimate indie folk and enchanting vocals.”
– Jess Casebeer
