A traveler, a dreamer, and a banjo pickin’ sweetheart from Arkansas, Kendl Winter sprouts alfalfa beans in mason jars in the back of her tour van and spreads her songs across the country Johnny Appleseed style. Her voice is beautifully unique and bold, and her songs are thoughtfully poetic and rooted deep within her experience. Previously of the Blackberry Bushes String band, she has branched off and out and her solo work is even more captivating and mesmerizing. Stemming from an old-time and bluegrass bend, she’s joined by her band the Summer Gold for a little Olympia twist on those familiar sounds.
Some songs on this album are folk. Some are bluegrass. Some smack a bit more of country, with twangy guitar and foot-stomping rhythm, but somehow she has created an album that is one moving piece. From Kendl Winter’s new album The Mechanics of Hovering Flight [KLP238]…Kendl Winter - Shades of Green
