Interview – Kendra Black

Hi Kendra, can you tell us a bit about where you come from and how you got involved in music.

I was born and raised in the South of Italy up until the age of 12 years old. I then traveled and lived in many different countries, until I moved to New York in 2012. Music has always been part of my life, my journey, and most importantly, part of who I am. I write my own songs, co produce my own music, and I have a great team supporting me.

Who would you say have been your greatest influences?

I listen to a lot of rap, Hip­Hop, R&B of course… I would say, The Weekend, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland… Are among those who inspired me the most. But what really kept me going, was and is, my father. He plays music too, and has always been my greatest inspiration.

What has been your proudest moment so far?

Well, collaborating with the artists featured on ‘Call me K’ and building my team, have been among the best experiences in my singing career so far. I made so many great connections that helped me develop my style and take it even further. I would say my proudest moment so far was officially releasing my first single, ‘Tonight’, on March 4th 2015, which is available to purchase and listen on ITunes, Spotify, Cd baby, Shazam, Rdio… I put so much work into it and it was so rewarding to finally see the results.

What do you have coming up next?

I’ll be flying to L.A this month to work with Trend Def! They are great, they have worked with Lady Gaga, Snoop Dog, Paris Hilton, and many more. I’m also having a performance on Friday June 5th in occasion of that, it’s gonna be a blast! Ty Alaxandar and Cody Verbage will be performing with me as well.
