Bio

Residing in Melbourne, Australia, Kendl first started turning heads after teaming up with Big Beat Records for the release of his track ‘Drive Slow’ in February 2017, which hit Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist along with Spotify’s Viral top 50 in Canada and the US.

Not long after, Kendl followed up with his self-released single ‘For Her’ as part of his diverse debut EP, ‘Colours’. Showcasing his ability to harness and produce music with emotional impact brought a wave of support from the likes of Magnetic Magazine, Huffington Post, Dancing Astronaut, Indie Shuffle and Earmilk.

Kendl writes with an emphasis on the change of sound over time and how it affects the listener, resulting in an eclectic collection of emotional journeys. So much can be felt and expressed in just a few minutes and Kendl aims to share music that can have a lasting, positive effect on the listener just as music has done for himself.

Kendl continues to blur the boundaries between off-kilter and mainstream electronic music with his latest split single ‘Ella / Manyara’. His electronic sound incorporates the use of organic and electronic instrumentation and is inspired by the sounds of UK Garage, Minimal Techno and Ambient Electronica.

You remind me of someone....a man I met in a half-remembered dream. Cobb? Kendl? Whoever you are, you've surpassed the deepest levels of Inception in this fluttering, dreamy track.
