I'm new to your music, only found it today via two of your CDs I got from the clearance shelves at Half Price Books, but I'm always finding something new out there. I haven't even opened them yet, but I'll be doing so in the next day or so. I got Paper Skin and Wounds To Scars, and I'll be on the lookout for the rest of them in the future. It looks like you've had a decent amount of success with your music, so I wish you the best and for that success to continue. Cheers!

Hi there. I've emailed before and so has my step daughter. I saw you at a church a few years ago and loved your music. I've purchased all of your cds. My step children love you! In fact we are listening now to you. A couple of years ago my son passed away and my step daughter emailed you to reach out for me. I never heard from you but she showed me the email and that was very special to me. We are wondering if you will be performing anywhere in the near future? I would love to take them. Thank you, Natalie Adams

Hi Kendall,

I saw you on You tube singing at Francis Chan's church. The song Pray and Let There be Grace has truly blessed me and I have passed it on and will keep doing so. I just want to encourage you that the Lord has plans and purposes that go beyond your natural desires. He is raising an army of christian soldiers, but so many of them have been wounded, many from within their own ranks. It's time for healing of the body. They need to be healed, than equipped with Love and Grace...than the battle can be won. The Father has given you a gift for the Bride, I pray that the Holy Spirit will stir mightly and bring incredible prophetic worship through you. He goes before you, rest in His timing, He's always on time. Your gift is for the Body of Christ....God Bless mb

Saw you when you opened for Third Day, probably over ten years ago. Played your cd with closer to myself a ton. Then lent it out. Bye bye. Anyway, woke up humming it this morning, and decided to see if you were still around. You have a great gift in your voice. Will check out your site.. Many thanks

I heard your song Pray at church last Sunday. The young lady did it acapella but said she had found guitar chords. I have been looking and cannot seem to find them. Where can I purchase them?
Thank you so much. The message is very powerful.

Hi Kendall, I saw you perform at Sunrdige Community Church in Temecula about 5-6 years ago for a Christmas Tea. I heard you perform "Mary, Did You Know?" and loved it. Every year I have looked for it on iTunes. I have looked for it on your December cdbaby album and it isn't there. Is there any recording of that song. As a mother of three young children, that song has such a beautiful meaning. I hope you release it and let me know. Thanks!

Hello Kendall,
You probably wont remember this,as it happened probably 12-14 yrs ago. I work with Tom James Company and your father was always one of my favorite people...ever! At my office, I just thought about one of my favorite TJ trips. We were in Colorado and my wife and 3 daughters were joining me on the trip. My girls and Carla were joining you in some dance steps/moves and it was a fabulous evening. You also blessed us with your initial song about your sister. We loved it!! I do think of your success and truly wish you nothing but the best!!! I hope your family is wonderful. I have not heard from Craig in many years and hope he is doing well. I would love to hear from him if you would be so kind as to share my email.
While typing this, I have truly enjoyed your songs in the background!! I will share your website with my daughters...Deanna (21), Mannie (20) and Ricki (19) and encourage them to buy your music. They will love it!!
Thank you for the precious memories!!


August 12, 2013

Hello. I am from spain and i watch dance moms.I just want you to know that the song ups and downs really helped me last year when i was in a dark and solitaire moment in my life. Keep doing songs because it can be a break in the lives of people.Sorry for the bad english.My best wishes


May 27, 2013

The first time I heard "Closer to Mysef" I was a freshman in college. The song meant so much to me because I have been trying to find myself since I could remember. Today I was thinking about all that I have done, what I have accomplished and faced challenges and overcome them in my life. I realized that being closer to myself meant that I would have to accept the things that I cannot change and change the things that I can to make my life closer to His. You are an inspiration and I thank you for your words of wisdom through your songs.

Just wanted to say I love you from my school days :)


April 8, 2013

I bought your first CD in November of 1999 at the age of 15. I loved it listened to it all the time. After growing up a Christian I feel away for some time, and lost all my old Christian CDs. The other day on my way home from work the song closer to me was playing in my head, by the time I got home I couldn't remember it. I searched and I could remember is your name started with a K. It wasn't until the song came to mind again that I was able to find it. I want to say thank you for your music and after all the research I did on my favorite Christian artists from the 90's I'm so glad to see you continuing on the path God has for you. It takes a lot of strength. God bless you in all you do.


March 4, 2013

Hi, I would like to sing your song "Pray" for my graduation. I was wonderingnwhat the guitar chords were? Thank you!(:

Jenny Vaughn

when will you tour again?


December 24, 2012

Thanks again for 'December.' It's a wonderful part of my Christmas. I hope we get more music from you soon.


October 28, 2012

Amazing amazing Kendall Payne.
I've been listening to I Will Show You Love for years and it's been one of my all time favorite songs. But it never occurred to me to look up the amazing artist who wrote this beautiful song. I really appreciate your work and thanks so much for this stunning piece of music! I'm so gonna buy your albums when I move to a country where they're available.


August 5, 2012

the bride and groom danced their first dance to your song "burning embers" at a wedding I went to this weekend and I absolutely loved it, it is so raw and beautiful!


June 9, 2012

From a father of the bride, the best ever non-traditional father/daughter dance song - 'Daddy'. Just be warned, can't listen or dance to it without crying, but it's worth it. Many nice comments about the song as well. Thanks Kendall for the memories. You are totally awesome. God bless


May 9, 2012

i havent checked out your webside in some time but just now did and found out you have a new album! sooooooo glad you came out with another album. paper skin was my fav. this one is going to be my new fav. you do great with melodies, lyrics, voice, and production. sounds great. it is beautiful music. Do you think you will play shows any time soon?

Patrick Beaumont

March 22, 2012

Just checking in with you, 'cause I love your music and your heart. All the best to you; hope you are well. New music would be great, but if you're happy doing what you're doing, then God bless you!


March 14, 2012

Hi Kendall, i usually dont do this kind of thing but I cant help myself, I am absolutely in love with your song "daddy", I got married over the summer and I had the hardest time finding my father-daughter dance song because my father and I have a very "un-original" relationship, so I didnt want the traditional songs everyone has. As soon as I heard this song it brought me to tears and thats how I knew. Thank you for your brilliance, so many people commented at the wedding at what a beautiful song it was.


February 1, 2012

I want to thank you for your words and your music and the fact that you share them. It brings such a peace - you say what I can't seem to get out, but want to. Thank you!


January 28, 2012

Wow. I found your website! :) Only took me 10 years. Seems like yesterday that I was enchanted by Jordan's Sister. All the best to you and your family!

your music has been the soundtrack to my life --- i walked down the aisle to 'daddy' in 2009... hoping to hear something inspired by your little one --- my 9mo old daughter and i need our "kendall song"!!


October 1, 2011

My daughter recently played your song "daddy" at her wedding reception when she danced with her daddy. It was so beautiful and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Thank you for writing such a beautiful song.

Love your music, very therapeutic and anointed; will you ever write a book with the stories behind the songs??


August 3, 2011

WOW! I'm so glad that you are still making music-one of my favorite songs of all time is the "supermodel" song...was listening to that today and wanted to see what you were up to!!! I saw you live in Denver with Tara Maclean and was one of my favorite concerts of all time. You GO girl!!!

Deanna Aspel

Your music is powerful and passionate! Do you offer accompanyment tracks? I work in a local mission that feeds and clothes the needy. We offer a chapel 2 days a week and I would love to sing your songs. I don't play an instrument or read music so an accompanyment track would be perfect for me. God bless you for your ministry!


May 1, 2011

Hello! My husband introduced your music to me about four years ago while we were dating. It's about the only musical love we have in common! We would love to see you in concert sometime. Any updates on you and life? I saw on your news page that you were expecting a baby in April. I hope all is well!

Just wondering if I can get the chord chart for "Daddy"...I've been asked to sing this at a wedding and can only find the lyrics. I would appreciate any help you can give. Thanks!!!


March 10, 2011

Love your music, Kendall! I came to hear you sing one time in Mill Creek, WA and bought a couple of CD's. Love 'em.


February 20, 2011

Your music has helped me through so much! Its inspiring, and honest.I love Paper skin, Rollercoaster and the whole Thats Why There's Grace album. Keep the songs coming!


February 17, 2011

I would love to hear the stories behind some of your songs. Is there any place you have written these? I am particularly interested in Me and David but the whole wounds to scars album is incredible. It really speaks to me and I would love to hear more of the heart behind it. Thanks for your time!

January 5, 2011

I saw you at Creation when Jordan's Sister came out, and have been following you since. My wife and I LOVE everything that you've released, and wish you the best. Keep em coming! =)


December 5, 2010

Hi Kendall-
I have been a fan since I saw you playing at an outdoor concert with Third Day in Arizona. You were an incredible artist. So captivated I even bought the Honest tee shirt and got your autograph for my niece) You are an amazing singer and a talented young woman. Your songs have blessed me and inspired me. I have a sister who is struggling with her faith, and on a recent roadtrip I put it in Jordan's Sister, and she loved it. I am going to get her a copy for Christmas. It's a step in the right direction for her and I am so thankful. I just want to say Thank You and God bless you and yours. Take care

November 16, 2010

I'm a new fan, and I mean minutes ago I was watching an episode of grey's anatomy and looked up the lyrics I got off of the episode and found your song."I will show you love." I'm sharing it with everyone I know, though I'm sure it isn't new. Just thought you should know that that's all it took for me to become a fan. I'm currently listening to your other songs! :)

Lisa Morgan

October 28, 2010

I love, love, love your music! My husband and I pastor a church in southern WV (a mission field in itself) and we are both big fans of your. I have always loved incredibly deep and touching lyrics. And baby - you got 'em! We would love to book you here to sing sometime in the future. Keep sharing your heart and emotions and thoughts through your art! May God bless you and your family always!!


October 20, 2010

Your album "Wounds to Scars" is just amazing. It really helped me through challenging times. Thank you.


October 12, 2010

I was at NYWC in San Diego. It was disappointing to hear that you will no longer be in the music biz. Since you are shifting into another season, I wanted to thank you for sharing your gift with us for so many years. You are truly one of my favorite artists. Listening to you live the few times I have had the honour of doing so, gave a little glimpse of the beauty and peace of heaven for me... no lies. I really respect you stance on putting your family first and hope you find much support in your decision. As your roles and seasons change, may your identity as God's beloved become clearer in clearer.

Stacey Blevins

October 10, 2010

Kendall, I'm a huge fan! I have 3 of your CDs and your newest one is my favorite! I love it! (every song speaks to me) Keep up the good work. I hope you will come back to Knoxville, TN soon. I've seen you 2 times at Fellowship Church. That's where I fell in love with your music. So come back as soon as you can!

Christopher Akins

October 6, 2010

Saw you in San Diego at NYWC! You were great!!
I have been in youth ministry for 18 years...sometimes it's really hard. When it becomes "to much" I find sanctuary in music...often times yours. Thanks for sharing your gift with me!
I think you'll be an awesome mom!!


September 27, 2010

Your song "That's Why There's Grace" struck me like a thunderbolt. I have been struggling with a major manic depression episode for 9 months and your song could have come straight from my soul. It has been so difficult but I am clinging to God with all that I have. You have blessed me so much with your song. Thank you and BLESS YOU!

Jenny Fitzgerald

September 16, 2010

I think your music is amazing!! Just wanted to send you some encouragement... God bless in all you do. Thank you for your music.


September 13, 2010

Your lyrics are poetry in music. Thank you for sharing your gift.


September 12, 2010

I have to be honest: can't help but cry everytime I listen "Daddy": I just can see myself singing that to my father. I absolutely LOVE your music so I just had to say THANK YOU for everything: sure you can't imagine what you're music have done for me, in a nice way :).

Take care, a hug from Chile

Hey Kendall,

Your cd Grown was for ages on my wish list... but no longer!!

I bought 2 copies today!!!!!!

I was browsing the web for the perfect gift for a religious friend and discovered the site CDBaby AND that you are with CDBaby! This makes me happy!

Since I also spotted they let you order with PayPal!! So now I (and others without credit card) can buy your cd’s without a lot of hassle! Great!

Looking forward to my First Kendall Payne!

Kendall, you performed at our church a couple of years ago, your music is played alot around here ever since. I do a lot of work in Fiji with young girls who have been through terrible situations. We played your CD over and over on the last trip. You have such an incredible way of communicating words, the girls loved it. Thank you so much for your music, i am getting the new cd now, Thanks agin

I was wondering if you were planning any events soon?

I love your music & sound, and would love to see you perform.



May 10, 2010

God speaking to me through your song "I will show you love" helped me to go up against the man whos been abusing me since childhood and say no more. There was no one to rescue me from him, no-one to stand with me, but when you sung "I am on your side", it gave me the strength I needed, knowing He was with me I mustered my courage and got away from the person of which i was terrified. I told my abuser that he had to stop, I told him NO! -the scariest and best moment of my life. I am safe now.
thank you and God bless you Kendall, this song helped me so much.


May 5, 2010

I just listened to Belonging and Scratch (on Amazing touching lyrics and beautiful sound...
Lots more listens ahead for me.

I was at the Calvery Womens Function this past weekend and purchase your That why theirs Grace CD. I cant stop listening to it. What were the other two CD's you had for sale there.



March 31, 2010

I was at your performance at North Park Community Church and you were fantastic! When I got to school the next day, I told all of my friends to listen to you! By the way, I'm ten.


March 20, 2010

Yesterday I watched Grey's Anatomy and heard the song Scratch. I juyt wanted you to know that this song is the only one that made me cry in my whole life. It's unbelievably beautiful!!


March 18, 2010

I loved your performance at Northpark! It meant the world to me!!


March 5, 2010

Your performance at APU was amazing. I loved every second of it. And whats ironic, is that I love the music even more knowing that it has taken so much and that you have had to overcome so many hurdles to get to where you are. It makes other artist like myself feel like we "have a shot." You are such a blessing to the music industry. More people like you need to be around :) PS. I agree with Michael's comment below me. "I'm a wreck after 50 minutes with you" haha

Michael Prior

March 5, 2010

Kendall, thank you sooooo sooo very much for sharing with us today at APU! To be honest, today was the first time I've heard your music, but God has used your blessings to touch my heart. I'm a wreck after 50 minutes with you. Thank you for using your talents to glorify God, and to speak truth.
Thank you.

Mary Ann Randall

March 4, 2010

Love your music. Also looking for the chord sheet or music for Pray. Thank you for including the links about human trafficking on your site. I have spent all day today reading over them.


March 2, 2010

Dear Kendall, i got your Cd around christmas when you sang at fellowship church in knoxville TN, i loved it so much that i showed it to the therapist that works at the Family Crisis Center with me (domestic violence shelter) she read the words to the song about "if you knew my memories would you be kind to me" and they cried, i just wanted to let you know how much of an impact your having on peoples lives.

Rachel Battle

February 24, 2010

I thought you had disappeared into musical obscurity as so many musical artists do after their first album. And then last week I discovered this site and my husband had to listen to my excited babble for days afterward after I read everything on your page. I still listen to Jordan's Sister regularly all these years later, like pulling out your favorite old comfy sweatshirt on a particularly rough day. I feel like I have so much catching up to do from the last 10 years. I started by just ordering a few CDs and I just got them today. And I wanted to thank you for continuing on with your music. I can't even begin to describe the emotional journey I have experienced listening to these new ones. Your lyrics seem to speak to my soul in a way I can't describe and your voice has a unique quality that words fail to convey. I feel slightly like an obsessive fan since I have posted about your music everyday this week on facebook. All my fan gushing aside, I feel like God blessed you with an amazing talent and I am honored that you chose to share it with the rest of us.


February 15, 2010

Hey I love your song Pray and was wondering if I can get the sheet music for it. My way to reach out to people in God's name is playing music for people who have not heard the Word of God. I think only of the most important ways to lead people to good is to show them the kind of people Godly people are and I have never heard a song that displays it so perfectly. I would be greatful to be able to play your song if you can provide the sheet music or something. Thank you and God bless.

Hi Kendall
I bought that's why theres grace recently. Wow!. What a wonderful album. The title track is beautiful and the cover of One is amazing. I never thought the original could be bettered but now I.m not so sure. It is great to hear just you and your guitar again just like the old days with Jordan's sister. It's time you came bak to Greenbelt!!
God bless.


February 6, 2010

hi kk i was wondring when you were comig down to nashville



January 30, 2010

The song "I will show you love" I was wondering if that was from God's perspective. My grandpa died and I listen to this song all the time. He was the most improtant man in my life and still is.This song really moves me. He was roman catholic and im christian. Thanks! Please email back!


January 29, 2010

In '09 I was at a church in Dallas and you were a guest musician. I immediately recognized the voice from the "Ice cream song" (that I heard in 2003) as I remembered it. I bought grown then, and I am moved every time I hear it. I used to be a worship leader, and there is not enough real music out there. Keep up the good work.


January 23, 2010

Hi, my name is Robin and I'm in a support group for women who have problems with cutting/injuring themselves and our therapist played "Me" and "Little Heart" in our group and it was like you were singing our stories. Thank you so much for creating amazing music that is not only beautiful, but also in a way, healing.
