Hip Hop/Soul artist Kynard released his debut album Get Thru the Day earlier this year. 2017 was a huge as Kynard went on to release four music videos “Friend or Foe”, “Yeah I Know”, “The Weekend”, and “Do Me” to support the album. After the video release of his lead single “Friend or Foe” it was apparent that he had something unique to offer the music world. After viewing the video, producer/artist Curtiss King stated that “Friend or Foe, has a powerful message.”
Kynard has fused Hip Hop, Soul, and smooth melodies to create a sound that can only be described as his own. Currently located and performing in Austin, TX he was raised in the Midwest for most of his life. Kynard was influenced by 90s R&B as well as the sounds of West Coast Hip Hop and East Coast lyricism. Taking in the combination of those rhythmic sounds, his interpretation is fresh, with a bold voice filled with insight of the stories from the many walks of his life. Only now has he decided to share his stories musically.
At this point Kynard is enjoying the journey of performing, writing new music, and meeting people who enjoy what he does. Starting with a small fanbase, the goal has been to get the music into people’s hands either by social media or live performances. Always ready with a joke or something funny to say, Kynard is nothing short of a character who enjoys music and good people.
