Independent music (often shortened to indie music or indie) is music produced independently from major commercial record labels or their subsidiaries, a process that may include an autonomous, do-it-yourself approach to recording and publishing.(Wikipedia).
The Kendall Connection have taken this on board and are about to take the music industry by storm.
Formed in 2016 by a group of extremely talented and very experienced session musicians, the lads have been beavering away in their own studio to create some amazing music. If you are a fan of the blues-rock genre and appreciate talented musicians then this band is one you need to follow.
The Kendall Connection is a Blues-Rock band from London UK, spearheaded by frontman guitarist, singer/songwriter Nick Kendall.
Kendall, along with band members Steve Holness (Keyboards), Greg Hagger (bass), and Tom Clare (Drums), are some of the UK’s finest session musicians who have over the last decade performed with some of the biggest names in music, such as 10cc, Adele, Tony Hadley, Paul Weller, Brian May and Alice Cooper to name a few. They have also held chairs on numerous shows in London’s West End and worked on TV shows the X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent.
Kendall’s songwriting has a grounding in Blues-Rock with Country and Jazz ingredients thrown in. His songs connect with the emotions of the everyday man while being a vehicle for the musicians in the band to express their musicianship through improvised solos.
The band have decided to embrace the digital age and rather than release albums in the traditional way, they will be releasing songs on a continual basis which they feel will give them the stylistic and creative freedom they desire.
Flick of the Finger has been given access to the first release by the band “Staring Back at Me”. Opening with a huge Hammond Organ riff the band make a statement right from the get-go. Kendall’s vocals are just edgy enough to grasp your attention and make you really listen to the lyrics. The band’s musicianship and virtuosity shine through in both the songwriting and playing oh …. and Kendall’s blistering guitar playing is just superb!
