Candye has been called a survivor, a superhero and the toughest girl alive. (All are also titles of her self-penned songs.) Her eleventh CD release, Sister Vagabond, released August 16, 2011 on Delta Groove Records was produced by Kane and her noted guitarist Laura Chavez, Sister Vagabond is a worthy successor to their 2010 collaboration, Superhero, which was nominated for Best Contemporary Blues CD in the Blues Foundation’s Blues Music Awards. Kane is nominated for 2012 BB King Entertainer of the Year and Best Contemporary Blues female. Vote at www.blues.org
The jump-blues singer, songwriter and mother of two from East Los Angeles is a seven-time nominee for National Blues Awards, has nabbed ten San Diego Music Awards and starred in a sold-out stage play about her life. She has performed worldwide for presidents and movie stars while raising two sons.
But her path to success was not always glamorous or easy. Raised in what she calls a dysfunctional blue-collar family, Candye became a mother, a pinup cover girl and a punk-rock, hillbilly blues-belter by the time she was just 21 years old. Ten CDs, six record labels, millions of international road miles and countless awards later, Miss Kane has proven to be a true survivor, beating pancreatic cancer while scrambling her way to the top of the roots-music heap, creating a world renowned reputation that has spanned two decades.
