February 2021 Streamed Performance

Once described by the late musical icon Prince as having “a voice that could melt snow,” Kandace Springs will kick off the 2021 Ovations Series. This singer, songwriter, and keyboardist’s refined mix of R&B, jazz, and pop has been showcased on three albums released on the legendary Blue Note record label. This Nashville-based artist counts such stylists as Billy Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Roberta Flack, and Norah Jones as her heroes, but, as evidenced by her sparkling Blue Note Records debut Soul Eyes, mimics none of them. She has a style all her own.  Other full-length albums include Indigo, which was released September 2018. Her most recent album, The Women Who Raised Me, was released March 2020.
