Kandace Springs

The 36th Annual Folly Jazz Series presents

the series Spotlight Artist

Kandace Springs

Friday, February 15th at 8 PM

JazzTalk with Julia Haile at 7 PM


Tonight’s concert is still planned to move forward. If there are any changes, we will reach out to each patron individually.


This year’s awaited Spotlight artist is Kandace Springs! The 27-year-old, Nashville born singer, songwriter, and pianist counts such stylists as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Nina Simone as her heroes, but mimics none of them. Springs prefers to allow her comely alto to become a conduit that touches upon soul, jazz, and pop while transforming those aforementioned influences into a personalized sound that reveals itself effortlessly.

Her 2014 self-titled debut EP, with a decidedly contemporary R&B/Hip-hop feel, was well received, placing the artist on TV performances including the Late Show With David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

As she began work on her next album, she felt she wasn’t singing her true self. So after some time of reflection and soul-searching, Springs began work on Soul Eyes. This album drew out her soul and jazz sounds that she resonated with and that her voice was built for. Kandace’s latest album, Indigo, is available now!
