Musically, Candace combines a range of influences. The resulting sound is uplifting and refreshing; accessible, yet unique. Candace is the kind of artist who listens to her muse. “I think life is a spiritual journey about love and healing. I strive for my work to reflect that.”

“Candace walks a line between contemporary country and pop. Her self-titled CD should appeal to fans of both contemporary country and Americana.” David Hall, WRLT Lightning 100 Nashville, DJ and Operations Manager

Raised in New York City and the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York, Candace began her career in the late 1980’s in New York City. Something in her knew Nashville was her next stop.

Candace moved to Nashville in 1993, and began co-writing with many of Nashville’s finest tunesmiths.

Along with established Nashville artists Kathy Mattea, Suzy Boguss, Pam Tillis and Mary Chapin Carpenter, Candace was profiled cd_coverin the documentary Women in Country Music / Naked Nashville, which continues to be broadcast all over the world.

“Candace brings to her music the authenticity lacking in most–heck–all of today’s country pop. She sings from somewhere most of us refuse to acknowledge or have covered over to keep from feeling.” – Buzz McClain, Washington Post

Her song That Old Car was her self titled CD’s first cut to open doors at US radio. Serviced to 100 domestic stations, That Old Car was also chosen as the opening track for the AFIM’s (Association for Independent Music) first ever Americana compilation alongside Doc Watson, Kenny Butterill, Larry Cordel, Trout Fishing in America and Mary Gauthier to name a few.

“That Old Car is the one cut that stood out on the AFIM Americana sampler.” Doug Rogers,  WJMQ. Wisconsin

Candace has been extremely proud to have her debut project share top 20 listings on the Real Roots Cafe based in Holland alongside a number of her musical heroes and heroines:  Emmylou Harris, Allison Moorer, Steve Earle, Neil Young, and Roseanne Cash to name a few.

“You know, I am deeply impressed by this album, it has more staying power than any album I can recall from the last few years. I still listen to it – and I love the sound, the feel and the texture of it. It is an amazing work” Arne Jonny, P5 Radio Solungen, Flisa, Norway
