Kandace Springs Trio

Prague Spring 2020
English–friendly
Tickets: seating CZK 900, standing CZK 600

In terms of genre and style, the music of this 30-year-old singer and pianist is closer to jazz and soul. Last year saw the release of her album Indigo, where she shows more of her soul face betraying the influence of examples such as Ella Fitzgerald, Roberta Flack, Luther Vandross, Eva Cassidy and also Fryderyk Chopin. However, her greatest idol is Nina Simone, whom she is said to resemble, given the breadth of her repertoire.


Kandace Springs (*1989) is a native of Nashville, Tennessee (USA), but her field is not the music that is typical of the capital of country music. The idiom of the thirty-year-old singer and pianist is stylistically closer to jazz and soul. Already at an early age, she amazed her friends and family with her incredible talent. Her father further expanded her musical horizons by supplying her with recordings of musicians like Norah Jones, Diana Krall, Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, and George Shearing, but above all Nina Simone.

At the age of fourteen she also started singing. Her father sent her recordings to the producers Evan Rogers and Carl Sturken, who have worked with starts like Rihanna and Christina Aguilera, and they came up with a plan to make Kandace into an r&b and pop music star. David Foster, the former director of the Verve Music Group, also showed interest in the talented girl, as did the famed producer L.A. Reid, and Epic Records promised her success on the pop market. In the end, however, Kandace politely turned down all of those offers when Blue Note president Don Was promised her that the his firm would support the development of the jazz side of her personality.

The result was a signed contract and her first EP simply titled Kandace Springs (2014). Two years later, she came out with her full-fledged album Soul Eyes, which launched her career’s meteoric rise and brought her lots of invitations to give concerts and to appear at festivals all around the world.

Kandace Springs will be appearing at this Prague Spring concert in an all-female trio, in which she is partnered by the California contrabass player Aneesa Strings and the drummer Taylor Moore, a graduate of the University of Illinois.
