Kandace Springs
Stellar jazz R&B artist Kandace Springs takes a break from Hall & Oates/Train tour for a club show. New EP is Black Orchid and new album Indigo is out in September.

Kandace Springs' new album Indigo sounds like something new, that's because it is. Simple while funky. Classic but contemporary. That said, it isn't quite a rebirth for the Nashville-born artist. She's long had that lithe and smoky voice and an intensely expressive mastery over the piano. For Kandace it boils down to a question that connects past to present: “What would Nina Simone do if she had the technology of today? You could never put Nina in a box—she would do a blues followed a classical piece, a jazz standard and then a Beatles cover. This LP took a lot of inspiration from that—it’s a mix of everything that I am.” Indigo's songs  swirl classical composition with quiet-storm cool, jazz poise with hip-hop swing, tropical warmth with soulful depth, and earthen groove with airy psych. With all but two of the tracks here produced by the mighty drummer-producer Karriem Riggins—the living bridge spanning Oscar Peterson and Diana Krall to Erykah Badu and J Dilla—Indigo creates a vibe as familiar as it is previously unheard.
