Love & Chaos
Love & Chaos
Nestled somewhere between the beauty of love and the turmoil of chaos comes the unique sound from Texas artists and long-time co-collaborators, AJ Vallejo & Kendall Beard.
Both artists on their own, have quite an impressive resume of experience in the music world. AJ fronting his heavy-touring Sony recording act Austin rock band, Vallejo for over 2 decades touring with the likes of everyone from The Black Crowes, Matchbox 20, Stone Temple Pilots & Blues Traveler, and Kendall enjoying national success as a finalist on Season 8 of Fox's American Idol as well as her own solo career.
AJ , being voted 3-time Producer of the Year at the Austin Music Awards, teamed up with Kendall after her Idol stint recording her 2 full-length albums. The studio relationship during that period proved to be so fruitful that the powerful songwriting duo came together as a duo project to create something new with an undeniable chemistry that carries over into each and every song.
On their debut EP Love & Chaos, AJ & Kendall bring different styles to the table and somehow manage to consistently find middle ground as they create fresh & exciting music together. Their first single/video Ready For War mixes a funky backbeat groove w/ big harmonies, while their second single Wildflower (co-written w/ TX friend, Willy Braun of Reckless Kelly) swings Americana & country together effortlessly without sounding contrived. Chase those songs down with the destructo-comical Drive Me To Drink and you have one mean mixed buzz of guilty musical pleasures that clearly show the duo's vast list of collective influences.
