Kandace Springs at The Atlanta Jazz Festival

We are fortunate that Kandace Springs’ father, Scat Springs, encouraged her to begin singing. Kandace initially felt that her music career would be as a pianist. Thanks to her father and the influences of Nina Simone, Roberta Flack, Sade, Bill Evans, Luther Vandross, Fredric Chopin and Sergei Rachmaninoff Kandace Springs has been singing live since the age of 14.

Since then she has signed with Blue Note Records and released her self titled debut EP, 2014’s Kandace Springs, and two albums 2016’s Soul Eyes and 2018’s Indigo. Kandace Springs graced the Oak Hill Stage at the Atlanta Jazz Festival to perform songs from each of these albums including covers of Robert Flack’s “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”, “I Put a Spell on You” and Sade’s “Stronger Than Pride.”

Kandace has a voice that could melt snow

Prince

In the tradition of Nina Simon and Billy Holiday Kandace Springs sings from her soul and you can feel it’s warmth with every note. “Place to Hide” is a bitter sweet song from Kandace Springs album Soul Eyes.
