THE KENDALL CONNECTION
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.
The four joined forces in late 2016 and launched the band with their debut single Staring Back at Me in 2017.
The band decided to embrace the digital age and rather than release albums in the traditional way, they chose to release songs on a continual basis, which they feel gives them the stylistic and creative freedom they desire.
Their first twelve releases went on to form their debut album which came out in January 2020. One album review in Blues Matters Magazine said, quote ‘The gloriously arranged finale Ready to Come Home, with it's poignant lyrics and screaming feral guitar interludes is a fitting climax to one of the best debut albums this reviewer has heard in a long time’.
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 Kendall Connection are currently writing, recording and releasing songs from their second album, the most recent release being Arizona Skies.
