Candye Kane (& Laura Chavez)


Candye Kane believes the universe makes no mistakes. 

Born November 13, 1965 in Ventura, California, Ms. Kane spent her childhood, a difficult one by her own account, in the Los Angeles suburb of Highland Park, and music and theater were her passion and saving graces.After a brief stint in USC's junior opera program in 1976, she did a left turn into punk rock, starting several country-punk bands in the early '80s.

 It was around this time that she became close friends with Dave Alvin, Marty Stuart and Dwight Yoakum who wisely encouraged her to always be honest about her colorful past. "Be yourself Candye. It's what you're good at." said Yoakum. 

 Over the years, Candye Kane has worked hard on her singing and songwriting craft, and after discovering the recordings of classic women blues singers like Bessie Smith, Etta James, Big Mama Thornton, and Big Maybelle, she also began to form a vision of how she wanted to proceed as a singer and musician.

 Now, from that procession, Candye Kane sings a sassy and showbiz-savvy blend of blues and soul that takes no prisoners of any persuasion, which she has, is and will continue to do, no matter what obstacles the mistake-free universe places in her particular path.

Candye Kane also has 13 recorded and released albums to her credit and a worldwide fan base that she acquired and earned on her own terms.

Candye Kane is here to stay.
