Kandace Springs

World renowned Blue Note / Capitol recording artist Kandace Spring’s next album, scheduled for release in March 2020, will be her most personal work yet. Entitled The Women Who Raised Me, it is her loving tribute to the great female singers who inspired her to begin her journey towards becoming one of the premier jazz/soul vocalists of our time. The album will feature her unique interpretations of songs that she first heard growing up in Tennessee, and ranges from such classic icons as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Carmen McRae, through 60’s legends Nina Simone and Dusty Springfield, and up to modern masters such as Sade and Lauryn Hill.

“My father used to play me records when I was young, and I fell in love right away with all these great singers”, says Springs. “I literally learned to do what I do by singing along with them. Ever since, I’ve wanted to pay that forward by reminding people of how great these ladies are; we all owe them so much.”

The album reunites Kandace with Larry Klein, Grammy legend and producer of her brilliant debut LP Soul Eyes. In addition, a stellar cast of guest artists has joined with Kandace to make this album a truly special experience. Most notably, Norah Jones sings a duet with her on the classic ballad “Angel Eyes”. “It was incredible to have one of my idols sitting right there, playing and singing with me” says Springs. ‘I’m still pinching myself”.

Wenn sie anfängt zu singen, dann ist es ziemlich klar, dass "The Women Who Raised Me“ abseits der normalen Regeln existiert, die Raum, Zeit und Talent regeln.

Es ist nur eine Frage der Zeit, wann sie selbst Songs schreiben wird, die in die Ewigkeit eingehen werden.

Selten hat man eine so dynamische Version von „I put a spell on you“ gehört, und das vor allem durch Billie Holiday bekannte „Strange Fruit“ interpretiert Springs mit melancholischer Wärme.

Mit ,The Women Who Raised Me" zollt sie nun auf eine sehr persönliche Art all diesen Sängerinnen Tribut, mehr noch: Kandace Springs schafft es, die ausgewählten Songs zu ihren eigenen zu machen.
JazzThing
Her singing is impeccable. Accompanying herself on piano, she sprinkles in sly quotes from the American Songbook, as well as elements from the classical repertoire.
Downbeat, 10.22.2018
Die 32 Jahre junge Kandace Springs aus Nashville meistert auf ,,The Women Who Raised Me" (Blue Note/Universal) die riskante Hürde eines Albums voller Coverversionen von Songs großartiger und bedeutender Künstler/-innen mit einer Selbstverständlichkeit, die selten zu finden ist.
