Kendra started studying the violin at the age of 2, and by the time she was 6, she had performed with the Utah Symphony and added the piano. A few years later she picked up the banjo and soon after added organ to her daily practice routine. Growing up, her entire family would start practicing at 4:30 am, followed by more practicing after school. She was blessed to have private teachers for every instrument.
In 1994, The Lowe Family began touring on the road up to ten months out of the year. They eventually relocated to Branson, Missouri where they performed six shows a week during an eight year run.
In 2005, Kendra returned to Utah to finish her degree at Brigham Young University. Upon graduating with a Bachelors in Media Music, Kendra moved to Jackson Hole Wyoming, to act as the musical director for the Jackson Hole Playhouse.

She has also had the privilege of performing for two different US Presidents, the wounded soldiers of our country's military, and thousands of veterans young and old.
Her skills and abilities have allowed her to record for dozens of movie soundtracks, as well as movie trailers including Toy Story 3. She has played on a number of TV show themes such as World Cup Soccer, The Today Show, ESPN, NBA Finals, and has also recorded the music for several video games including Lord of the Rings.
Currently, Kendra is working as the musical director, arranger, and pianist for Lexi Walker, a 12 year old singing prodigy. She also continues to join David Archuleta for special events.
Kendra enjoys culinary arts and gardening, reading, rock climbing, spending time in the mountains, riding motorcycles, and hanging out with her incredible 92 year old grandmother, Barbara.
Kendra is one of six girls and two boys, and enjoys a rich heritage. Her mother grew up in Hollywood where her grandmother was an opera singer, and her grandfather was the chief makeup artist for Max Factor, and also the private secretary for Howard Hughes. Kendra's dad is one of seven musical brothers, having been raised by an equally musical mother and supportive father.
She is grateful to everyone that has been a part of her journey thus far and hopes to inspire generations to come.
