Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hey Canadian Beats readers, Thankyou so much for having me. I’m Kendra Gabrielle! I’m a Country Pop Singer Song-Writer from Milton, Ont and I’m gearing up to launch my debut single “Bad Boy” on October 22. Music has been a huge part of my life for the past decade and I’m so excited to share my work with the world.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
I would describe my music as Country-Pop fusion, perfect to listen to while driving in the car or hanging out with friends but it will also make you feel all the feels haha. I’ve been a singer for a decade and really began focusing on songwriting about a year ago. What I really love about songwriting is that I can capture moments and memories and put them into a song. I am very heavily influenced by Taylor Swift’s songwriting style and try to implement it into my own work. My debut single “Bad Boy” takes inspiration from my personal life and how the person’s and my relationship has evolved over the years.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
AHHHG I WISH!! Unfortunately, no, due to Covid-19. For someone who has not seen me live, I would have to say I like to make my performances pretty intimate with just me and my guitar. Connecting with people through using my voice is something I always strive to do and will continue to do no matter how much I evolve as an artist.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
BAD BOY!! It’s why I’m here today. This is my first single and I’m so proud to share with everyone, it’s an insight into my sound and the leader to what is to come.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
There’s so much incredible talent here in Canada!! My current favorites are Shania Twain and Celine Dion, I mean they’re absolute icons and I love listening to “My heart will go on” on the daily.
