Kendra Black releases “The Fire”!
Italian-born, NYC-based artist, Kendra Black has released her second solo album “The Fire”, which consists of ten pop-infused EDM tracks penned and sung by Black, including the single “Smoke Signals”. “The Fire” is a follow up to Black’s debut EP “The Edge”, which includes her pop debut single “Rude” featuring multi-platinum rapper/singer/actor Snoop Dogg. Teaming up with Germany based producer Enrico Tiberi, Australian producer Androse, NY based composer Nicholas Babian, and Grammy winning engineer Mikaelin ‘Blue’ BlueSpruce, Black evolves to the EDM world, mixing elements of dubstep, R&B and electronic dance beats with pop sensibilities.
Born in Italy, Black grew up traveling the world and studying music as well as ballet. She trained and performed with teachers from the Music Conservatory of Cannes (France) and from The Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan. After graduating from the Kirov Academy of Ballet of Washington DC in 2012, Black relocated to New York City where she put together her team of producers and band members. She collaborated on song co-writes with Bravo’s Platinum Hit finalist Nick Nitolli and Grammy-nominated singer/producer Lachi, along with the producers at Trend Def Studios in Los Angeles on her debut EP “The Edge” released in late 2017.
Black has performed on stages in France, Monte-Carlo, Italy, Egypt, the Caribbean, and the US. She has headlined at major music venues in NYC, including Highline Ballroom, Webster Hall, Knitting Factory, Mercury Lounge and Chelsea Music Hall. She also appeared in numerous roles in New York Film Academy productions, and on Nickelodeon TV Channel. In April 2018 she won an award for best contemporary pop act in VA at the Richmond International Music and Film Festival while on her ‘Dangerless’ Spring Tour which started in Philadelphia, where she premiered her single “Dangerless” before its official release in May 2018. In addition to her music, Kendra also has her own line of sportswear, the KB Sports Apparel, currently on sale at all live shows and online.
