Today we visit with music group Kordsmeier Music from Conway for our first ever Musician Profile. We get the scoop on how they got started, their favorite places to play, and their favorite song to cover for this married music duo.
Sound molded by picking guitars around a fire on a perfect summer night, Kordsmeier Music aims to tell meaningful stories and draw out an array of emotions through their music. Composed of Dylan and Hannah Kordsmeier, the duo is out to prove their spot in the Arkansas music scene.
Their first single, “The River” was released in June 2020. It tells a haunting story of love, loss, and memories of time well past with respect to how all those factors affect the direction of a person’s soul.
This is the first release of the EP “Talk to God.” The 4 song compilation addresses a variety of topics from losing faith, passionate love and tops off with a good old-fashioned crime of passion. This EP is a direct reflection of the duo’s diversity in songwriting styles and themes. If you want an intro of what’s to come, make sure to play the EP!

How would you describe the music that you typically create/perform?
A LOT of fun! We like to write songs that mean something to us and that other people can relate to (and we like to put on a show!)

Ashley, Tyler, Whiskey Myers, or Miranda. It’s really a toss-up between any of the artists that we emulate.
