Candye Kane

Contemporary Blues

If the blues is a music best sung by those who have experienced a lot in their lives, there is no one better to sing it than CANDYE KANE. From being born into a family with a missing father and verbally abusive mother to recently beating pancreatic cancer, her life has been marked by difficulty and hardship. Through it all, she has found the strength to make some truly incredible music. She was accepted to USC’s conservatory’s opera program, but didn’t connect with opera and left the program to become a part of the burgeoning punk rock scene. Working with such musicians as Social Distortion, Los Lobos and Black Flag, Candye Kane made a name for herself. Her music began to take a bluesy turn, and she now belts the blues with the best of them. Her sexually charged shows are the stuff of legend, her stage presence unmatched. When she takes the stage, you know that you are in for an incredible show. She comes to Anthology on October 28th.

“Kane’s live shows are the stuff of legend. She honors the bold blues women of the past with both feet firmly planted in the present. She belts, growls, shouts, croons and moans from a lifetime of suffering and overcoming obstacles. She uses music as therapy and often writes and chooses material with positive affirmations that leave the audience feeling healed and exhilarated.” –
