Release Strategy, Online Distribution and a Famous Duet | Kendal ConradKendal Conrad has an impressive singing and songwriting resume for someone so young. Based in Nashville, Kendal has actively pursued gigs including singing the national anthem for MLB, NBA, MMA, and NASCAR events. She’s had the opportunity to perform at the White House, opened for artists like Blake Shelton and Walker Hayes, and she may have sang a little duet with some guy named Keith Urban.

Kendal shares how she’s approaching the release of her music, particularly during these challenging times, and the difference between the number of songs she creates versus the ones that are distributed. We also talk about her love for a good romantic song, how a touch of pop can carry her through multiple genres, and our shared enjoyment of horror movies.
