Today we’d like to introduce you to Kindora.
Hi Kindora, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today.
So, I’m Kindora. I make pop music. I made a cover of a Portishead song on YouTube and that’s pretty much where everything gained traction musically for me because I always loved singing and writing, but I never understood the tangibility of creating my own music until Nerdork and a producer named Rock Floyd showed me after seeing that cover. I’ve been making music since around 2013 and I still am.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
So there are a lot of tough elements to being a musician. Being able to be social, trying not to be hard on yourself, struggling to have an income to support your art when it’s already so difficult just getting by, making time to make that art and share it with other people without feeling like you’re badgering them are a few things that immediately come to my mind but I’ve tried to keep myself from overthinking everything and moving ahead when I’m ready to.
I used to think that every song was a chance to catapult myself out of what feels like a never-ending climb out of the underground but now I don’t concern myself with that, now that I have people who connect with the music I make, it feels really great to share with them and I’m very thankful for them.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I’m a pop artist… I’m a writer and performer. I have put out four albums and several singles, features, and collaborations with some of my favorite and amazing artists like Rock Floyd, Bbymutha, Moodi, Cinematic, and Overmono.
I just got back from going on National Tour with some stops in Canada I got to go all over the country as a featured artist with Bbymutha and it was so incredible. I’m not sure that anything, in particular, sets me apart from anyone else… I actually want people to know that they aren’t alone! I think everyone is an artist or creator in one way or another and I love that about people.
What has been the most important lesson you’ve learned along your journey?
Don’t let anything go to your head! There’s always something that comes next!
