Kendall Street Company was founded in the early months of 2013 by guitarist/vocalist Louis Smith and saxophonist Andrew Drehoff. The duo had been playing together for some time in the greater Virginia Beach area, joined by a rotation of talented musicians who performed behind Louis as the Louis Smith Band. After moving to Charlottesville in late 2012 to attend the University of Virginia, the pair began putting together a group of student musicians, adding Brian Roy on bass/vocals and Ryan Wood on drums/percussion in early 2013. Since then, the band has added Price Gillock on keyboards, Ben Laderberg on the electric guitar, and Jake Vanaman on saxophone.

The band performs regularly in Virginia and throughout the East Coast, maintaining a central presence in the Charlottesville area, which includes regular live radio performances and a debut EP recorded at Blue Sprocket Sound in Harrisonburg, Virginia. The group released their debut full-length album Earth Turns in the Summer of 2016. While Kendall Street Company's music is influenced by a variety of musicians and styles, the group has been described as "psychedelic," "alternative," "jammy," "rock," "indie," and "ska."  It is not uncommon for guest performers to join the group on stage for extended jams.


Featherpocket's songs are a composite of sounds both new and old reverberating across the American landscape. The history of America shapes the songs - sounds from the backwoods of Appalachia, the lonesome blues of the delta, and the songs of our migrant ancestors all come together to form a unique sound as old as the country and as modern as the times.

"Featherpocket inspired the youngsters grouped in front of the stage to hop and bound in a pattern of movement that would result in a faceplant (and possibly blood), were a Yankee like me to attempt it. The strings – two guitars of varying voltage (Jason and Spencer Bloodworth), one bass (Cameron Gersh), and one banjo (Clint Lemonds) – came together like the perfect sandwich, four ingredients in perfect harmony. Featherpocket creates the sound of the mountains, towering rocks populated by trees, visited freely by breeze. See them if you can; they’ll make you feel at home."
