Soul Capital From The Capitol Vaults

Kandace Springs
I went down to the vaults from Capitol and affiliated labels, like Blue Note, EMI, Stateside, Liberty and United Artists again.
Beautiful singer Kandace Springs (picture) is one of the upcoming flag bearers of Capitol/Blue Note. About two years ago Kandace Springs sat down at the piano at Capitol Studios and sang an impassioned version of Bonnie Raitt’s ‘I Can’t Make You Love Me.’ Stunned by her arrangement and performance, Blue Note Records President Don Was offered her a record deal on the spot, after hearing only one song. Prince heard her cover of the Sam Smith song ‘Stay With Me’ online and asked her to perform at Paisley Park on the weekend celebrating the 30 year anniversary of ‘Purple Rain’. Kandace is working on her debut solo album with some big names, like abovementioned Don Was and Eli Wolf (Norah Jones) for quite some time now. For some reason the release must have been postponed, because it was announced for 2015.
