Certainly their early study of mountain music along with their acoustic instruments suggests an American Folk influence. However, Kendra's vocal influences are quite varied, reaching into Jazz, Blues, Rock, Pop and both early and modern Country Music. Some refer to Redhead Express as Folk-Rock or Folk-Pop while others like the Alternative Country label. However, it seems that no matter what they sing, it is uniquely their own.
