She trained and performed with teachers from the Music Conservatory of Cannes (France) and from The Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan. After graduating from the Kirov Academy of Ballet of Washington DC in 2012, Black relocated to New York City where she put together her team of producers and band members. She collaborated on song co-writes with Bravo’s Platinum Hit finalist Nick Nittoli and Grammy-nominated singer/producer Lachi, and teamed up with the producers at Trend Def Studios in Los Angeles. The resulting product is Black’s new five-track EP, The Edge, which she plans to release this March.

“Recording this EP was an amazing experience, I really want to thank my executive producer Lachi and the producers at Trend Def Studios who helped me make it all happen! I had a blast recording ‘The Edge’ and I’m so blessed to have had the opportunity to connect with Snoop Dogg.” -Kendra Black
