Meet Kyndall!

Summertime brings warm weather, chill times + the cool,  addictive sounds of  Kyndall! Hailing from Houston, Texas the 19-year-old songstress is making a buzz on the R& B scene. Currently signed with Atlantic Records, Kyndall  recently released  her 6-track EP Still Down including her latest video for “Close To Me”.

Her hot EP  presents a heap of gritty, bass heavy R&B. This ambitious beauty has worked with the talents of Boi 1da (Drake, Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar), Chef Tone (Trey Songz, R. Kelly, Jamie Foxx), Maejor Ali (Justin Bieber, Drake, Kelly Rowland) & DJ Dahi (Drake, Lily Allen, Big Sean)  in creating fresh music for her generation.

Her songs are a modern day throwback to the days of 90’s R&B where young female artists like Aaliyah, Brandy and Monica provided the soundtracks to a generation of teenage girls, but also deftly bridged the gap between youth and adulthood. With just six tracks Kyndall makes it clear: She’s an R&B package to watch!

Let’s get to know Kyndall a little better…



You’ve recently released your hot 6-track debut EP Still Down, what did you want listeners to feel + take away from your music?

Ultimately the goal was to introduce myself musically in an EP that held up over time. I wanted ’Still Down’ to feel fresh, vibe-y and still have classic storytelling at the same time.

Emotionally speaking, all 6 records follow my heart and head through my first serious relationship; If I have my way, people will connect to me bearing my soul & and feel less alone in this crazy game of love.

Your single “Close To Me” is an addictively smooth + chill track, what inspires your music?

The EP was created in Houston and we shot the music video in Galveston Island, just outside of Houston which is  ‘addictively smooth & chill”. I think Houston really inspired the vibe found on ‘Still Down’ as much as my love life.

Style is a way to describe yourself with out speaking, how  does your fashion + music style connect?

My style falls in line with the tone of my EP… I’m usually shaded up in dark, urban,  monochromatic silhouettes  and of course the Houston trademark, my grill. You can take me out of Htown, but you’ll never take Htown out of me. #bornandraised

You’ve already accomplished so much at the young age of 19! If you had to choose, what would be the biggest highlight in your blossoming career so far?
Thanks! I don’t quite feel that way. I’m just getting started & “Still Down” is my first, “Hello, my name is Kyndall” to the world. The biggest highlight so far has been the release of 2 of my music videos (“Playing Games + “Close To Me”). We worked so hard on shooting 3 music videos in 3 days, through freezing rain. It was incredible to shoot in my own hometown and having family and friends visit set.  I’m really looking forward to producing my live show. I expect that to be a major highlight ahead.



Being young and having responsibilities can sometimes get to be a bit overwhelming, how do you regroup and motivate yourself when you’re feeling a little defeated?

Two things: I think, “WWYD”: What Would Yonce Do? I genuinely do. I mean, she doesn’t really strike me as one to wallows in despair.

And I also think: “No weapon (formed against me shall prosper) ”…It’s like a Biblical reminder that I’m good, no matter how things shake out.

Your future is shining extremely bright! What projects can we expect from you in the near future?

Other than developing my live show, I’m currently working on a new body of music to release as soon as it’s complete, no more long lead ups. It’s time to go!

We are all about female empowerment, What does EMPOWERMENT mean to you?

Empowerment to me is taking control. I feel empowered when I’m not a follower. In this business everyone has an opinion about you and what you should be doing. I was called stubborn & difficult when I shelved  an earlier EP, but I didn’t connect with it and I couldn’t sing a lie. I took control and released a project that’s all me, and I’m extremely proud of that.

Time for the Faves! Celeb Crush? Artist? Food? Movie?
Celeb Crush?



I’m alternating between HTown’s own, Travis Scott + Tory Lanez from the 6. Throw some Jhene Aiko in there & now we have a party!

Food: Been trying to find a happy medium between being a health nut  & binging on cajun food. I’m working on it. There’s GOT to be a happy medium!

Movie: I come from Musical Theatre, so I’m really into movie-musicals. My faves “Pink Floyd The Wall”, “Sweeney Todd” & “Across the Universe”.
