Kendra Muecke is a 26 year old singer/songwriter, guitarist, poet, novelist, actress, healer, and published author performing musically as a solo act under the name “Kendra & the Bunnies”. Based in Los Angeles and born in Houston Texas, her mission is to create art that reflects society’s positive aspects back onto itself, causing a ripple effect that expands as it is heard. Her intention is to share healing via collaborative experience and understanding through performance. She is for the peaceful gathering of community through means of song, voice, and action. Through music, Kendra & the Bunnies combines song, spoken word, theatrical staging, and healing ritual to transpose the audience into a mystical-surrender of now.
Kendra & the Bunnies’ sound combines the musical notes of singing, poetry, guitar (electric and acoustic), percussion, medicine drum, and electronic samples. Kendra has self-titled her genre “Native Americana’ that chants from the valleys of Folk, Western-Rock, and New-School Blues”. This brings the listener into thinking about where the roots of folk-americana were founded. There is a lot of storytelling prevalent in the creation and continuation of our country, the key is recognizing what stories we as a society cling to and why.
Her style has been said to remind listeners of Grace Slick from Jefferson Airplane if she were to be singing Grateful Dead songs. It’s like Joni Mitchell and Stevie Nicks sat down to play a game of poker and Neil Young were the dealer.

Kendra Elisabeth Muecke was born on February 11, 1993 in Houston, TX. Born a true Aquarian, Kendra has always been connected to her creativity and visions, drawing her to the performing arts at a very young age. Starting at age 4, Kendra began professional theatrical training at Theatre Under The Stars located in Houston. Attending acting classes, vocal lessons, and dance rehearsals, she found herself in love with the artistic endeavor that is the stage.
Growing up in the theatre, Kendra’s voice grew along with her experience. At age 13, she began singing rock ’n roll music at Camp Jam.

At age 14, Kendra discovered her affinity for poetry. Her stream of consciousness prose was noticed immediately by school teachers and mentors alike. At age 15, she was asked to read her long form poem, October, in front of her entire high school. The poem and others of hers were published for 4 consecutive years in the literary magazine, Light and Shadow. As a poet, her style comes in all forms. From metered to rhythmic to traditional iambic pentameter, she keeps her pencil in hand and her eyes open for observation.
Kendra published her first book, “The Politics of” in November 2017. This book is a 338 page ensemble of poetry, opinionated essays, and one-act plays accompanied by original photography. Kendra’s second book, “Project Non-Arch: Operation Clown School” was published on September 13, 2019. “Project: Non-Arch” is a long-verse poem, manifesting the willpower it takes to intentionalize one’s dream. It also tackles the recovery process inherent in deprogramming one’s mind from societal conditioning. Additionally, she is currently writing her first novel, a tale of Fire vs. Ice, titled “Friend of the Level”, and her third book of poetry is to begin compilation soon with the title still up for thought-discussion. Hand-signed copies are available on her website. The book is also selling on Amazon Books and Barnes and Nobles’ online store. (Kendra donates 5% of book and album sales to both Camp Winnarainbow and The Rex Foundation, alternating).
At age 18 (2011), She moved to Malibu, CA to attend Pepperdine University. There she continued her studies in the theatre and on stage. Developing her interest in the ancient history of theatre and its culture, she began studying ritual performance and sacred texts.
After graduating from Pepperdine in May 2015 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre Arts (Acting), Kendra moved to Venice Beach, CA, where her interest in rituals and her poetic talent drew her to the path of Native American Shamanism. She is an initiated Shaman and healer. Additionally, Kendra practices the Celtic Sin-eating tradition and Rainbow-Light Witchcraft.
She began these initiations in the Summer of 2015, at the Fare Thee Well Grateful Dead 50 shows in Santa Clara, CA. The following month, she was inducted into the Rainbow Family. This gave her a new perspective on what it means to be a performance artist within the bounds of psychic discovery. Combining her intuitive talents, she created the workshop, The Politics of You: Acting in Dimensional Alignment. This workshop based in the realm of spirituality, improvisational acting, and psychic development was first shared with her community via The Healing Temple at Spring Frequency Music Festival in June 2016, located on the La Jolla Indian Reservation in California. Additionally, she performed this workshop at Sonic Bloom Music Festival in June 2017, located on Hummingbird Ranch in Colorado.
At 23 in September of 2016, Kendra packed up her car and headed East from Los Angeles to the Land of Poets, known to many as Denver, CO. Here, she had her feet on the ground and her head in the mountains. Denver was a whirlwind, a place where her dreams could again gestate into fruition. Here, she heard a voice calling, calling, calling. Earning her wings, Kendra was woven into the Grateful Dead Family. She awoke with intentions to channel her words into a means of peaceful gathering.
In September 2018, Kendra decided it was time to move back to Los Angeles, CA to pursue songwriting, writing, and performance on a grander scale. Between Denver and Los Angeles, Kendra took a three month pit stop in Houston, TX. Divine revelation took a major turn on September 24, 2018, when she was gifted the path of sobriety and recovery. This experience has opened her heart furthur to service in the field of live music. She aims to help those that may have wandered a bit more from their path than they intended. Kendra moved back to Los Angeles in December 2018. The most important message she has to offer you is healing. Be the voice you wish to hear on the wind. Listen…
