I thought I owned most of Kendra Morris’s music, but a few weeks ago I came across the soul/rock singer-songwriter’s record, “Winding,” and I was amazed. I discovered that it was only released on the UK Deluxe edition of her 2012 album Banshee.
The song took my breath away. It’s such a gorgeous throwback soul song that I thought it was a cover from the ’70s. But no, it’s her own, co-written with Jeremy Page. There’s a haunting and stirring vibe about it that moves me on a deep level that I can’t quite figure out. And the video, co-created by Morris and Shannon Weidel, is just as intriguing and original as the song and the artist. I’ve had “Winding” on constant repeat for a month now and I doubt that, that will change anytime soon.
