They are also famous for featuring thrilling musical duels between their two lead players. Their songs include powerful, inspiring and beautiful, environmental and mystical themes and their sound has been likened to Fleetwood Mac, Jethro Tull and the Moody Blues.

Band founder and driving force, Elaine Samuels, began performing solo in folk clubs at the age of only 13, getting a mention in the local press as “one to watch”! She has featured on television, radio and at countless festivals and venues. To quote Rosie Upton of the Bath Evening Chronicle

“Elaine has a voice which can be both hauntingly beautiful & deeply emotional…it is her rich repertoire of perceptive and intriguing self penned songs combined with her guitar work which sets her apart.

Elaine evolved the full Kindred Spirit Band band, notably performing at Guildford and Glastonbury Festivals and Liverpool’s famous Cavern Club. Recently released album, “Elemental”, is attracting attention while acclaim for previous album, “Phoenix Rising”, led to international album distribution and a feature in Prog Magazine, with Rachel Mann calling it

Folk rock meets classical with a scientific edge.

The Kindred Spirit Band are Elaine Samuels (vocals / acoustic & electric guitar), Stevie Mitchell (flute / sax / vocals), Piers Hogg (electric guitar), Keith Buckman (bass guitar / bvs) and Aleem Saleh (drums & percussion).
