If Kandace Springs‘ new album Indigo sounds like something new, that’s because it is. Simple while funky. Classic but contemporary. Straightforward in the way it breaks down complex ideas and genres. And, at the end of the day, undeniably human. That said, it isn’t quite a rebirth for the Nashville-born artist, who after stints living in New York and Los Angeles has returned back home to Music City. She’s long had that lithe and smoky voice and an intensely expressive mastery over the piano. For those paying attention, Kandace’s second album finds her unleashing what was there all along, all at once, for the first time.
Prince learned about Kandace's extraordinary talent after hearing her remake of Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" and asked her to join him for the 30th anniversary concert of Purple Rain at Paisley Park. Kandace's ability to take you through a journey just using a piano and her voice is remarkable. Her own catalog will give you hints of icons like Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Dusty Springfield, Sade, Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Bonnie Raitt, and beyond. Kandace is well on her way to being a legend herself. As Prince said, "Kandace Springs has a voice that could melt snow."
