whale fall: released june 14, 2019

Radio-ready, Nashville-style storytelling that will move your hips and get stuck in your head, Whale Fall is a modern take on Tawnee Kendall’s classic country-music upbringing. Expanding on the soundscape from her previous album, Release The Ghost (dubbed “heart-on-your-sleeve artistry” by Huffington Post), Kendall’s fourth studio album continues the journey in richly emotional, irresistibly melodic songwriting.

Tawnee Kendall LIVE at Bottom of the Hill + official music video for Keep The Rain (Release The Ghost, 2017) featured in independent film “American Brothers”.


Tawnee Kendall delivers commanding melodies with the gravity of rock, the preen of pop-glam, and the storytelling force of folk.

Tawnee Kendall first took the stage at age four and was performing regularly up and down California by age 10. Her first performances were at state fairs, farmers markets, and yacht clubs - entertaining crowds with old familiar classics like Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Hank Williams. 

At age 15, Tawnee jumped at the opportunity to buy her first guitar and taught herself how to play. She's been writing and performing her own music ever since.

Raised on Country, Bluegrass, and Rock and Roll, it's easy to hear Tawnee's roots coming through in her songs. She has released three EPs: In Between SpacesStill Taste It featuring The Hangover Brigade, and Release The Ghost.

Today, Tawnee is based in San Francisco and plays regularly throughout the Bay Area and California. 



Out Now, Release the Ghost is a 4-track album that mixes the sweet with the somber and the up-lifting. The stories contained within breathe a Country vibe, while the music itself is eclectic but cohesive.

This is heart-on-your-sleeve artistry – filled with lyrics that tell very personal experiences of pain, loss, love, and hope – a release of emotions that built the gateway to a new beginning. Thank you, Tawnee, for taking us on this journey with you.

Lead singer, Tawnee Kendall's, beautiful and commanding voice coats The Hangover Brigade's saucy folk country pop music sensibilities with great ease and melodious style. 

Deli Magazine, Artist of the Month.

The Hangover Brigade brings a jam band feel that brings out lead singer, Tawnee Kendall’s power-driven vocal capabilities. Their song, “Any Way I Can Get It”, brings out the talent of the band, and their music is an experience itself that captivates the listener in a trance and doesn’t let go.
