Based in Nashville, TN, Kendra Chantelle has made a name for herself as one of the more versatile vocalists and artists around. The daughter of a brilliant vocalist mother and rock drummer father, music was an inevitable calling that she always planned to pursue. She is a phenomenal artist and songwriter but also stays busy singing lead and backing vocals live and in the studio, doing vocal production and arranging, writing and recording music for TV & film, vocal coaching and doing yoga for her #YogAbroad following world wide. She is on tour with Tom Keifer as a vocalist and percussionist in #KeiferBand Her personal sound is a fusion of tortured soul, rock & roll, blues and R&B but she is genre fluid and can be called on to perform country, pop, blues, rock & roll, metal, bluegrass, jazz and beyond. As long as it has "that feeling and pocket" she's in.
Kendra is in the studio now with her dream team finishing up her record. Brad Sample & Bobby Holland are co-producing and bringing to life what Kendra feels like is the sound of her lifetime. As music becomes available for purchase and streaming, we will update here.

Kendra teaches what she has named “Yocology” which is her own unique fusion of Yoga and Voice. She takes the breath, mental focus and spirituality of yoga and blends it with the vast knowledge of vocal technique she’s acquired with her almost twenty years of study. She has taken voice instruction from some of the best teachers/coaches out there including Rachel Raines (speech level singing), Tray Simmons (Bravo Voice), Angel Higgs, Singing Success! (Brett Manning), and Liz Johnson (Love Revolution Vocal Studio). Her variety of study has allowed her to take the best techniques out of each vocal theory and stick them all into a pot of vocal gumbo. Her insatiable thirst for continued education means she is always learning, testing and applying new techniques and exercises to compliment the tried and true methods she trusts. She prides herself on never teaching the same lesson to different students- and puts much preparation, thought and personalization into each client’s vocal journey. Whether you’re seeking technique, breath control, stylistic direction, studio technique and tips, live performance/confidence coaching or any blend of these, Kendra’s Yocology can help.

A THALASSOPHILE IS A LOVER OF THE SEA. OUR BEAUTIFUL PLANET (ESPECIALLY THE OCEAN) IS CURRENTLY IN MAJOR TROUBLE DUE TO HEAVY SINGLE PLASTIC USE AND OVERFLOW OF UN-RECYCLED WASTE. I HAVE BEEN EDUCATING MYSELF ON WAYS TO MAKE POSITIVE CHANGES BECAUSE WE ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN HELP NOW. HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE RESOURCES. I AM ALWAYS SEEKING OUT MORE SOLUTIONS, FEEL FREE TO SHARE SOME WITH ME TOO, LET’S SAVE THIS MAGICAL HOME WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN
eliminate plastic water bottles
Bottled water is often no different than tap water except that it’s wildly expensive and horrible for our planet. I made a life changing purchase this year and got a Berkey water filter https://www.berkeyfilters.com It eliminates all potential contamination of water so well it could actually filter water from a lake and make it drinkable AND it allows me to not use plastic bottles that just build up and end up in our beautiful oceans.
stop using plastic straws
Plastic straws end up in our ocean and harming the beautiful wild life that resides there. A beautiful solution I’ve found is reusable metal straws- BONUS- the straw phonation technique I am a huge advocate for in my vocal practice benefits from these sustainable straws too!! You can purchase here, but they’re becoming available everywhere https://www.amazon.com/VEHHE-Straws-Stainless-Drinking-Reusable/dp/B07FX4TZMS/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=metal%2Bstraw&qid=1563629564&s=gateway&sr=8-3&th=1
Sometimes single use plastics are unavoidable- I really struggle when I’m on tour especially, but if we have to use them, we MUST recycle. This search site that locates the nearest recycling location is really helpful when I’m traveling https://search.earth911.com and familiarizing yourself with what can and cannot be recycled is helpful too- here’s a great guideline: https://wasteindustries.com/residential/recyclingguidelines
