Often compared to such contemporaries as Alice Smith, Mayer Hawthorne, Alice Russell and Leela James, Kendra Morris is deeply rooted in the great soul and funk of the late-60′s and early-70′s. Her vocal power beautiful, her artistry ever-evolving. This week’s top tune got the party started as the lead-off track on her 2012 debut lp Banshee on Wax Poetics Records.
Look for her followup lp, Mockingbird on July 30th. This all-covers affair will take you on a ride through classics by David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Lou Reed, The Rolling Stones and more. She and her collaborator and producer Jeremy Page put their sweet and soulful stamp throughout. Check out this feature from The Wall Street Journal with a clip of Kendra’s version of Radiohead’s “Karma Police”.
