Direct and guarded in equal measures, Amy Kendal (AK) is a singer/songwriter hailing from the UK with minimalist beats and catchy vocal hooks. Taking inspiration from 90s R&B, alternative EDM and Swedish pop, this creator arrives with her own distinct sound and sweet-as-can-be vocals.
Having played in bands for years as the front for everything from punk to EDM, this is her time to release her own material – created wholly in line with her vision. As a singer/songwriter she has helped other artists to hone their sound and develop their own material too.
AK works with producers from around the world and collaborators both sides of the Atlantic to create the music, and writes all lyrics and vocal melodies herself. She has recently worked on a new single called ‘Obsession’ with an American producer called Jay Johnson. The upbeat track features a heavy sub beneath a light musical melody. The lyrics and vocal melody are punchy, layered and with tight harmonies to add depth.
From singing at cider festivals in Somerset at age seven to writing her first original song at twelve, she has always been creating and performing for as long as she can remember. Music is in her blood with musicians as parents and singing running strong through the family – it was a noisy household growing up!
Never staying in one place for too long, she has lived all over the UK and enjoys travelling as much as possible. Taking inspiration from her experiences, her lyrics often talk to the more painful times she has gone through, but it’s a personal ambition to create more uplifting tracks to reflect the balance and realness of life.
She is currently looking for musicians to help her bring her music to life on stage and hopes to be gigging in the near future. She is also exploring new technologies that might enable her to ‘play’ and cue up aspects of her tracks for a live performance.
You can find AK on Soundcloud, Bandcamp, YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, as well as through her official website. She records covers for YouTube of songs she admires or ‘ear worms’ that she can’t escape.
