"Prince always had an eye for talent. His latest – and last – could prove to be one of his greatest. "

World renowned singer, songwriter, and pianist Kandace Springs’ new album entitled The Women Who Raised Me (02/20), is her loving tribute to the great female singers who inspired her to become one of the premier jazz/soul vocalists of our time. The album features 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.
Springs counts such song stylists as Prince, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Nina Simone, as her heroes. She’s long had that lithe and smoky voice and an intensely expressive mastery over the piano. Read Jon Bream’s Star Tribune review of her last Dakota show here >>
