"Kendra Warren is a singer-songwriter born and raised in Asheville, North Carolina. Her roots reach five generations deep into Spivey Mountain. Kendra's passion for songwriting burns bright! You will know this to be true when you hear her original song, the Spivey Mountain Jam, as she tells the tale of her father burning down 16 acres of Asheville's Spivey at the age of five! You may notice hints of an ancient Appalachian accent blossom through this tune,  reflecting her authentic mountain heritage.
 
"My main motivitavion for writing music is to advocate for environmental protection and humanitarion practices. While signing petitions and marchig in rallies can make a difference, music sends a message straight to the heart that can ripple from generation to generation."

 Musical magic is now being made as Kendra joins up with various artists. She has recently completed a nationwide tour, playing over 50 shows in 2.5 months traveling from NC to California and Maine. Her new EP "Train Of Life" is now for sale! Be sure to grab one for only $5 at the Organic Festival!
