Kyndra Lee

When six-year-old Kyndra Lee sang alongside her grandmother’s piano in church, she wouldn’t have dreamed her voice would take her so far, and although for one night only, bring her back home to open the show for Texas guitarist and well-known recording artist, Ian Moore, at the Iron Horse Pub.

While still attending Rotan High School, she sang her way to the national stage at the FFA convention in Indianapolis, into the pages of the Los Angeles Times as Miss Snake Charmer in 2013. Her voice would then take her to college in Texas and earned her admission into renowned music conservatory Berklee College of Music in Boston. After a brief hiatus, she took to the road on a southwest tour, playing dozens of shows across four states, singing alongside—interestingly enough—her grandfather’s Fender Stratocaster.

While currently based in Colorado, Kyndra has only briefly passed through her home state of Texas, as her 10-month-long tour shares her time with Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah, as she performed in Moab Utah only days before tonight’s show in Wichita Falls.

“I love playing in Texas; always have and always will,” Kyndra said. “Texas is not just where I was raised, but where I learned about music, and it feels good to be able to give music back to the people who taught me to create it.”
