One might never expect such a rich and mighty voice to emerge from Kendra Morris' petite frame. Her potency as a singer and performer grew from a childhood immersed in music, traveling with her family to perform gospel in the prison ministries and asylums of St. Petersburg, Florida. Kendra moved to New York in 2003, making music inside a tiny closet with only a guitar and 8-track recorder, always keeping it simple ' an aesthetic that continues to shape her sound. The southern influence of the soul and humidity in her voice adds a raw energy that one would attribute to a generation long lost to the internet and digital media. Morris' voice is a courier to a world where oral story telling is the only means for passing on life's lessons, humor, and drama. After releasing two self-produced EP's she teamed up with seasoned producer Jeremy Page (The Cars, Ed OG, That Handsome Devil) to work on this self-titled EP. The collaboration has birthed a collage of tracks that echo the music and experiences of her childhood. Kendra's real strength lies in combining mysticism and the strange emotions invoked by the human spirit.
