Who Are The Kindly Ones?

The Kindly Ones are rocking audiences wherever they go with sweet melodies framing shocking, poetic lyrics, fueled by raging guitars, thundering bass & drums. Formed in March of 2002, Dominic von Riedemann (vocals/guitar), and Sarah Ternoway (bass/vocals) create a tsunami of sound greater than just three people. The Kindly Ones have been compared to Hüsker Dü, Interpol, and Social Distortion, but they blaze a trail all their own.
The Kindly Ones seduce you even as they cut you. It is this blend of sweet and sinister that keeps audiences coming back for more.
