My choice this week -out of a pool of undeniable talent - was the mysterious and über-talented Candice Gordon.
Yesterday I reviewed Candice Gordon's debut six track mini album 'Before the Sunset Ends' - It is due for release on May 6th. With the title track from her debut EP, Candice Gordon sets the tone. Her voice has a raw sex appeal and she sounds like something off the soundtrack of a Tarantino flick. Her voice gives you that 'halloween feeling'. The EP was produced by music legend - The Pogues’ Shane MacGowan. It features Gordon’s seductive vocals underpinned with a swelling horn section. Candice is based in Berlin and is somewhat of a nomad. She has travelled from Botswana to Dublin, busking through Asia and travelling with a circus in Croatia and Turkey.
She is very unique and there is a tenacity in her voice that conveys her explorative nature.
To hear my full review you can listen back to last nights broadcast of 'In Colour' on RTE 2XM by clicking here !
Make sure to make it your business to attend! My feature article about Candice Gordon will be in 'MRU Magazine' live this Friday.
