Album Notes
Release The Ghost is Tawnee Kendall's third EP, but is the first to fully capture the grit, rawness, power, and magnetism which Tawnee Kendall is known for in both her songwriting and her live performances. Kendall collaborated heavily with producer, Kyle Caprista, creating captivating storytelling foundations akin to Patsy Cline and Ryan Adams, while delivering a powerful full-band wave of enveloping sound that will have you begging for festival grass to dance on.

Release The Ghost is an elevated folk experience which will tangle its melodies around your head and heart, making it hard to stop singing even after the songs have ended.

Many thanks to Kyle Caprista and Gawain Mathews who helped me to realize the sound I've been hearing in my head and heart all these years. Working with the two of you was a joy I will likely never be able to fully express, but I'll continue to try.

Thanks to my incredibly supportive husband Tyler who has given me strength to pursue my greatest passions in life. Every day is a waking dream with you.

Thanks to my many beautiful friends who have shared feedback and insight on all my songs along the way. Thank you for showing up to shows, even if they're across state lines, who obsess about my songs as much as I do, who give me spirit and strength. To name a few: Jacob Wolkenhauer, Michael Bolognino, Gabrielle Guthrie, Claire Langtry, Jonathan Moga, Devon and Lauren Dowling, Evan Hart Marsh, Jeb Havens, Nick Moreau, Andy Heitz, Rebecca Olarte, Corey Ponder, Joe Hickey, Jason Leroy, Heidi Weber, - to name a few.

A warm thank you to the late Maureen Moore, my singing teacher, piano teacher, second mother, dearest friend, and confidant. You are deeply missed every day and I wish I could share with you all these incredible life moments that have happened after you've left. My hope is that I can sing them loud enough so that you may hear them from wherever you are in the universe.

Last but not least, a deeply heartfelt thank you to my parents for always believing that music was my path. Your unfailing support has given me an indescribably strong foundation. You have given me more than you will ever know. I love you endlessly and unreservedly.
