Show Info

Candye Kane has been called a survivor, a superhero and the toughest girl alive. (All are also titles of her self-penned songs.) They are apt descriptions of the jump blues singer, songwriter and mother of two from East Los Angeles who has earned this moniker the hard way. Nominated for five National Blues Foundation Awards (Best Contemporary Blues Female 2011), winner of ten San Diego Music Awards, starring in a sold-out stage play about her life and beating down pancreatic cancer in the last two years, Kane is one tough cookie. She has performed worldwide for presidents and movie stars but her path to success was not always glamorous or easy. Raised in a dysfunctional, blue-collar family, Candye became a teenage mother, a pin-up cover girl and a punk rock, hillbilly and blues-belting anarchist by the time she was just 21 years old. Ten cd's, six record labels, millions of international road miles and countless awards later, Miss Kane has proven to be a true survivor as she scrambled her way to the top of the roots music heap, creating a world-renowned reputation that has spanned two decades.
