Kinder set aside his guitar, walked away from the microphone and moved to the edge of the stage – a stage that's hosted such signpost acts as Johnny Cash, Don Henley and Dolly Parton – to deliver an impassioned version of his gospel-tinged ballad "Still Believe In Crazy Love." With the instruments out of the picture, Kinder put the focus solely on his voice, wringing a complex set of musical influences and a ton of emotion out of a one-of-a-kind set of pipes. Not every artist could – or should – take that kind of a risk at such a sacred venue, but for Kinder, it was an ideal showcase. There's a singular sound to his voice, one that's enriched with country, soul, pop, rock and gospel. And Kinder expresses those myriad influences with a unique texture, a way of relating his words with a ferocity and conviction that sounds like no one else. It's the kind of individuality that's found in many of popular music's most identifiable singers – Elton John, Garth Brooks or Reba McEntire – and he backs it with a from-the-gut power. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=258083 Mercury Lounge Mercury Lounge
