Tour Information

“… the total package. Captivating describes Kendall’s performance nicely” –

APRA Best Country Music Song 2017 finalist Kendall Elise is a flame haired chanteuse. She possesses a versatile voice that will take you from tears to laughter. Her music speaks of dark humour and personal experiences, inspired by rhythm and blues, folk and country, and everything in between.

“‘Heart Full of Dirt’ is a dirty slab of honky-tonk rock'n'roll... the chorus a singalong murder-ballad classic:
I'd love you so much more if you were dead.
– Grant Smithies,

Kendall and her drummer Chris will be travelling all over the country bringing a raw, stripped back version of her stage show to a town near you.

They will be joined by New Zealand music legend Bernie Griffen. Bernie’s songs are melodic and memorable, soulful tales of a life well and truly lived on the fringes – full of love, pathos and colourful stories. Bernie Griffen and The Grifters supported a number of international acts, including Emmy Lou Harris at Vector Arena, Little Band of Gold (twice) Justin Townes Earle, Kitty, Daisy and Lewis, and Eilen Jewell.
