KENDALL STREET COMPANY ANNOUNCES UNTITLED CALIFORNIAN PROJECT – NEW EP + MUSIC VIDEO + TOUR DATES
Creating music seems innate to Kendall Street Company, a burgeoning jam-alt act featuring five immensely creative artists. Whether it’s a collective commitment to betterment, an inescapable penchant for humor, or a flair for the next dramatic studio EP Untitled California Project sums up the ineffable charm that touring musicians exude. A release that combines dynamic musicality with ingenious storytelling, the album is a tongue-in-cheek rock opera inspired by both the culture and natural beauty of America’s Golden Coast. Arriving on June 24, the project heralds the band’s long-awaited inaugural visit to the west – an inescapable, manifest destiny.
“I’m so happy that we can share [this] story through a visionary piece about the state of California,” explained multi-instrumentalist Jake Vanaman. “The project details a companion’s loss of innocence and follows his epic ride through the heartland of America. Think of it as a musical theater performance.
Kendall Street Company announces the project with an SNL-style intro video, shot by director Cal Ries. On the EP’s opening track “California #1,” the visual captures each member of the band preparing to leave Virginia for an epic journey west.

The band secured backing from veteran producer Joe Pisapia (David Crosby, The Monkees), for the EP’s upcoming singles. Featuring full-screen genre performances, the trunk-shaking lowrider groove “California #24” sits alongside “Crab Surprise,” a cheeky ballad with buttery harmonies that’s sure to elicit a smile.
In mid-June, the group will kick off the ten-show series in colorful Colorado, appearing in Denver across from Cervantes (June 10) and at 830 North in Fort Collins (June 11).
