"A little lyrical jumpstart. Brain candy kindling sung through sweet sonic lullabies,
but never lulled to sleep. Too many bands go for the souped up sounds, cacophonous
melodies that confuse you, no meat on the bones.
They are too caught up in their own sound that they forget the foundation of a good
song, is a good story and the right person to tell it. Kindler spent a whole winter
in a house without heat, a bottle of whiskey, good friends and a commitment to the
story and it shows in songs. I remember listening to Buckely’s Grace the first
time. I felt like I was being let in on a secret, that I was literally hearing the
inner workings of a beautiful mind. To tell you the truth, bringing up Buckley makes
me nervous. I mean I am stepping on some hallowed ground, but screw it…
I’ve been waiting for a voice, for a day that I I could forget that part of
me that died the day Buckley died. A decade later and Kindler has done that even
if it’s for one split second. He is taking..." Red Sea Station
"You probably haven’t heard
of Will Kindler. Now you have, but just wait until you hear him.
I don’t know the man, but he has just given birth to an exceptionally brilliant
ten-track recording, “Trifles for Queen Jane.” I’ve heard it three
times now, and I like it better every time. Mind you, I liked it an awful lot the
If comparisons to better-known musicians are helpful, think Dylan (circa 1966) and
the Beatles (Sgt. Pepper through White Album), sung by a straight and slightly more
subdued Freddie Mercury… if that’s possible. I trust Kindler welcomes
such comparisons, as his CD title echoes Dylan’s “Queen Jane Approximately,”
and Kindler’s “She (Knows Not),” will remind listeners of Dylan’s
“She Belongs to Me.”
Beyond that, I can’t say much. I’m a music lover, not a critic. It’s
just shockingly good stuff. I don’t have a favorite song, at least not yet.
They’re all good. If I had to file the record into a category, I’d have

"Outfitted in black
pants, shirt, and white vest; sunburst Gibson acoustic in hand and harmonica draped
around his neck, 21 year old Will Kindler stepped onto the stage at Cambridge’s
Middle East club. Dec. 5 was Kindler’s first time joining in on the club’s
historic music scene, and he did not disappoint.
In for a twist from the bitter December cold, Kindler warmed the audience with his
melodies. Soothing the crowd as they warmed up to the eclectic and inimitable sound
of his voice, the clock stroke 8:30. Kindler’s harmonics took flight resonating
through the air as his voice followed.
He opened with, “Device of desire,” the first off his record Trifles
for Queen Jane. Kindler demonstrated his varied adventurous vocal nature with the
performance of his songs. He effortlessly juggled his vocals, harmonica, and guitar
while projecting his greatly relatable lyrics on to his listeners.
Kindler’s captivating performance of five songs was augmented with intermittent

"Will Kindler is a
young Wilton-(NH USA)-based singer-songwriter, whose androgynous voice and unique
stylings are gaining him a strong local following. His music would tend to fall
into the psych-folk or freak-folk genre, but some of his compositions, including
the song "Sufi" probably fall into the world music or experimental category. His
latest CD Trifles for Queen Jane, went on sale at the end of November, 2008. His
first demo CD went on sale in January, 2008.
Many of the songs he performs in local coffehouses are Bob Dylan and Nina Simone
covers with a twist, e.g. "Visions of Johanna". He has collaborated with Zo Tobi,
A.J. Jasper, and James Lemire.
