The McKINDRED sound is anchored by the signature harmony singing of Kelsi McInnes & Brooke Loewen. Building on this acoustic singer-songwriter foundation, the band also includes the percussion artistry of Dave Oostra, mixed with the stellar bass playing of Ryan Zahara and the soulful guitar-playing of Arjun Roy.
In January 2020, the band entered the studio with Arjun (Producer & Engineer) in order to capture the spirit of their live show, further define their sound on the forthcoming debut album and share their artistic vision. Nearing completion, they recently released their first single to starting things off. Inspired by summer days, art, music and festival season, McKindred’s new single & music video, “Calls My Soul” is an anthemic ode to what can bring us us all together.
Continuing to build on the Bear Creek Music Festival “Best Band” Songwriting competition winning sound, the band makes music that aligns with their goals: to connect with their audience and listeners, leave them feeling energized and uplifted, and make music that lasts.
