Interview with Kendall Payne

How did you get started in music?

Singing at church.

How long have you been performing professionally?

I was signed to Capitol Records when I was 17 years old. I think that counts as 'professional'.

What is you motivation for playing professionally?

Knowing how powerful music has moved me in my lifetime, one of my motivations is that I could powerfully move others.

Can you describe your music style for us?

Chick rock.

What are some of your musical influences?

Singer/songwriters... Sarah Mclaughlin, Billy Joel, Tracy Chapman

What inspires you when you write music and lyrics?

Emotion. I feel something, either from a personal situation or as an observer of someone else's situation and I feel strongly about it. Thats where most great melody and lyrics come from for me.

What can people expect from a live performance?

To be impressed :-)

What will someone walk away with after hearing a concert you perform?

I don't know, you'll have to ask them yourself!

What can you tell us about your current project?
