As the curtain falls on 2020, you need to take the creative energy built up over the year and hit the ground running in 2021. Checking in on Kandle for her first drop of the year we have Birds, a brand new collection of covers EP. Growing up in British Columbia with her father Neil Osborne, Kandle was able to experience the music industry from a rather unique perspective. Determined to move against the fray, Kandle made it clear that she has no desire to create disposable ear candy. She has no plans to chase playlist placements, as she simply just wants to tell her story. Following in the path laid for her by strong female icons like Nancy Sinatra, Billie Holiday and Shirley Bassey, her true love of music will serve as her guide. Kandle has already snagged the attention of audiences and critics, snagging a “Video of the Year” JUNO nomination as well as a Prism Prize award for her track “Not Up To Me.”
“We wanted to be somewhere else for a spell and it was granted by whiskey, reverb and 6 beautiful, dark tunes from the early 70s. We boarded his silver spaceship looking for respite from the pandemic…” – Kandle
When we mentioned hit the ground running, we didn’t expect Kandle to just show up one day, drop a full six track EP, and bounce. A result of a collaboration with acclaimed fiddler and vocalist Kendel Carson, this Birds EP serves as Kandle’s ode to Neil Young through a collection of covers of his famous songs. Created by these two lifelong friends on a whim, each track is beautifully stripped down to its core to showcase that amount of inspiration that one can absorb from music. The creative power between both Kandle and Kendel is exhilarating, displaying their mastery and adaptation of Neil Young’s style into their own realms of expertise.
If a solid EP like Birds can be made on a whim, what the hell is stopping you?
