We are a group of young musicians and our music is compared to Fireflight, Pillar and Paramore. Our sound is heart pumping as well as angelic. We write our own music and also play some cover songs for the groups mentioned. We are anxious and eager to minister to the youth and ROCK FOR THE KING!
As a young group for over 5 years, we called ourselves Spoken For. We have played as many as 23 shows a year for local youth groups, city functions and showcases. Our music grew as did the band family. We were asked to play a Band With A Mission showcase in Nashville, TN early in 2011 which opened a door we have dreamed of knocking on for a very long time. We signed with PopGun Productions and began our new journey. Being a new band family, we renamed our group "KINDRED". Our new music is a bit more rock and vocals are amazing. Joey Cefalu, our lead guitarist, can riff with the best as well as singing backup. His talents are often compared to that of Joe Satriani. Joey's guitar abilities are jaw dropping. Drummer Jacob Hines will astound you with his double bass abilities, showmanship and technique. He has many extreme drummer followers and you will not be able to help becoming one of them. Dustin Herres will keep your attention with his stage performance as he does slap bass. He is like watching two people in one. Cash Hamilton kills the rhythm guitar as he jams with the guys. Kindred crosses between male and female vocalist that always bring it all together.
You won't want to miss the opportunity to work with this band. Fine, upstanding Christians with amazing leadership qualities.... that will rock your the place out! "CAUTION! THIS BAND CAUSES SEVERE HEAD BOBBING AND GROVE!"
Joey Cefalu: Band leader and Lead Guitarist
Dustin Herres: Bass and Keyboard
Jacob Hines: Drums
Cash Hamilton: Rhythm Guitarist
We have seen first hand and played music with some big name bands and it always inspires us to see the Word flow through the audiences heart. We want to be a part of that ministry.
What to Expect
