Kindred the Family Soul

Kindred the Family Soul

Born from the same turn-of-the-century Philadelphia neo-soul movement that birthed Jill Scott, the married duo Fatin Dantzler and Aja Graydon are Kindred the Family Soul. When Jill Scott discovered the pair at the Black Lily Film & Music Festival, she signed them to her Hidden Beach Recordings label and released their debut record, Surrender to Love in 2003, which featured "Stars" and "Far Away." The critically acclaimed album earned Kindred a nomination for a Soul Train Music Award in 2004.

Kindred's follow-up release In This Life Together came out in 2005 and painted an unapologetically autobiographical picture of Dantzler and Graydon's life together. Critics applauded the album's content - AllMusic's William Ruhlmann declared: "...the collection presents a full-scale portrait of life for a loving, struggling, contemporary couple with three kids trying to keep things together, a life not that different from most people's. That is actually a refreshing perspective to find expressed in popular music, and one a wide audience should be able to identify with."

After releasing The Arrival on Hidden Beach in 2008, Kindred shifted over to Shanachie and produced their latest album, 2011’s Love Has No Recession. "It is our prayer that this offering will inspire, and as always, be a voice for those who truly relate to our message," share Dantzler and Graydon. "It is equally socially conscious as it is all grown up and sexy-like. It is quite simply ... US." Featuring the lead single "Magic Happens," the disc peaked at No. 90 on the Billboard 200 chart.
