The album, ‘Together‘, was inspired by all that’s great in jazz, disco, soul, dance and r&b, but is also a contemporary interpretation of what’s happening in music and the world today. Candy created a deeply personal and unique blend of musical genres & influences, bound together by her trademark sound, showcasing her extreme versatility.
Candy has been fortunate to work – both in the studio and on stage – with some of the biggest names in music, including Van Morrison, Maceo Parker, Sheila E., Mavis Staples, Lionel Richie, Beyoncé, Pink Floyd, Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, and many others.
Her first solo album ‘Saxuality’ earned her a Grammy Award nomination, the combined world-wide sales of her solo albums top 2.5 million copies, and she has had several number 1 hits in the USA.
In between her many concert tours around the globe, she still manages to join Dutch female supergroup the Ladies of Soul for their annual sold-out concerts at the massive Amsterdam Ziggo Dome, is a headline performer on Jazz Cruises in the USA and Europe, is an ambassador for the Dutch ALS Foundation, and is working on her autobiograpy scheduled for release in Fall 2017.
Whether she and her band play the biggest festival stages around the world, or an intimate jazz club around the corner in Amsterdam, her fans know that her concert is always the hottest ticket in town. Catch her and her renewed band on tour in the USA!
