Will Kindler / Press

“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...”

“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 first time. If comparisons to better-known musicians are helpful, think Dylan (circa 1966) and the Beatles (Sgt.

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 a tou”

“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 breaks for”

“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.
