While female DJ representation is on the rise, the music industry is dominated by men. With very few female role models to look up to at a young age, Kendra V recognizes the value of female representation in music production. Her latest single, "Salty," reflects on her journey as a female producer and DJ while navigating through the music industry.

Chart-topping singer-songwriter Myah Marie was an excellent pairing to help Kendra V execute her message. "I heard Myah’s topline and the lyrics immediately resonated with me," she said.

Pulling listeners in with entrancing murmurs right from the get-go, "Salty" is a rollercoaster of emotive lyricism and trap-pop sound design. Kendra V's bold new track explores the difficulties of being soft and sensitive in a world that's so cold: "I should stop and smell the roses, but all of my senses are broken.”

Chicago-born and raised, Kendra V graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where she studied molecular and cellular biology. After the devastating loss of her father, she had a change of heart. Instead of attending medical school, she familiarized herself with Ableton Live and began creating her own sound.

Kendra V has also gained invaluable insight on the industry early on in her career from her mentor, Sidney Swift, a record producer, songwriter, and screenwriter who has written and produced songs for the likes of Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Beyoncé, Big Sean, and Nelly.

Kendra V recently graduated from Icon Collective’s Music Engineering Program, a school which counts SLANDER, NGHTMRE, Jauz, Kaivon and more as alumni. "I realized very quickly that in order to turn this passion of mine into a career, I had to educate myself," she said. "Attending Icon gave me the formal training and overall social awareness that I needed to feel confident & empowered in this industry.”
