Exceptional phrasing, impeccable precision, an intense and joyous voice full of tender mischief, candid sensuality, youthful seduction, a voice with body and soul, high notes of heart-melting sweetness, a sensual style à la Roberta Flack... Kandace Springs takes after her heroines, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, but also Norah Jones. Like the latter, she plays the piano, and like Shirley Horn too, she knows how to accompany herself. By diving into her Afro-American heritage, Kandace Springs has developed an authentic sensitivity. And although she has grown up in a world where mixing sounds has become a reality, she fully appreciates the worthiness of all those who showed her the path, the valiant jazzmen who guided her footsteps.
