Kindred The Family Soul are somewhat of an anomaly in a business that seems to foster fly-by-night trends, single- minded artists, one hit wonders and where narcissism is a way of being. The down to earth, spiritual, young married duo and parents of six, who are not afraid to flaunt their love and commitment for one another, has managed to steadily build a devoted following with their unique mix of soulful R&B and hip hop minded grooves, conscious lyrics and refreshingly honest songwriting. The hit-making duo has played a vital role in the soul music renaissance over the past decade. “Our main inspiration comes from the complexity of our own relationship and the different roles we play in our lives,” shares Aja Graydon, one half of the hit-making husband and wife duo. “The respect we have for one another in our personal lives has strengthened our professional relationship. Through the challenges of balancing life, love, family and music we continue to grow with one another,” adds Fatin Dantzler, Kindred’s other half. The Philadelphia based duo’s magnetic chemistry, dynamic showmanship and insightful songwriting often bring about comparisons to such iconic duos as Ashford and Simpson, Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell and Robert Flack and Donny Hathaway. Kindred The Family Soul’s new CD and Shanachie/Purpose Music Group debut (released June 28, 2011) is a masterpiece of originals that paint stories of love and devotion, the human struggle, redemption, perseverance, social consciousness, economic struggle and family values. “I think Love Has No Recession speaks to our evolution as a couple and as artists. We have experienced a lot together,” confides Aja. “We have prevailed over hardship, stayed true to our mission and truly enjoyed success in a musical landscape that doesn't exactly reflect what we are about.” Joining the duo on Love Has No Recession is an all-star line up that is testament to their respectability among their peers. Featured guests on Kindred’s new CD are Snoop Dogg, Raheem DeVaughn, Chuck Brown, Bilal, Ursula Rucker and Lady Alma, among others.
