Kendall Rucks is an artist rising to the top in the Pop world and beyond. Having recently produced and starred in her upcoming new music video, Kendall is one busy artist. We had the chance to learn more about her upcoming projects. Read on…
Kendall, tell us about your summer plans!
Hi! Well I’m in Florida right now for my birthday and I’m loving being home with family! I’m leaving soon to go back to Los Angeles then hopefully up to Oakland in July. All the meanwhile working towards my single release for early August!! So excited.
What can you tell us about the new music you are currently working on?
It’s the sound I always had inside but never could translate. It’s honest and of course moody and feels just so right. I can’t wait for people to hear it!
What have been your favorite releases from major artists this year?
I listen to lots of composers and soundtracks and my new favorite is the season 2 Big Little Lies soundtrack. It’s yummy. “Hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have, and I have it” – by Lana Del Rey is like my soul anthem right now. Probably my favorite release of 2019 thus far
Who do you consider your greatest heroes?
Hmmm Walt Whitman and Rumi really changed the way I saw the world. The archetype of Lilith and artists of the Renaissance are all my hero’s as well. Of course my father and mother too!
If you had to name 2 of your top inspirations in songwriting who would they be and why?
Fiona Apple and Kurt Cobain. They are both the pinnacle of writing excellence. Both such visceral writers that take you on a journey of sight, touch, taste, and feeling.
It takes a lot of hard work and creativity to make it in the music industry. How do you balance the two?
It’s hard! I’m currently in a bit of a writers block right now and I blame it on all the energy I’ve been putting Into the business and marketing side of my music. My creative muse gets miffed when I don’t pay all my attention to her
Where can we buy your music and support your career on line?
I have music I did a while back on all the streaming platforms including iTunes. You will be able to find all my new releases that will begin in August on all platforms as well!
What will be the theme of the upcoming new music video and did you enjoy being part of the entire process?
The first release music video is for my song Blood Money! The theme is so up to interpretation, and I wanted it that way. We shot it so gorilla style! Running through downtown La at rush hour. May or may not have been dodging cars left and right. Got a little scratched up but, it’s all in the name of art. (;
