Candye Kane: Blues On The Coast 2009
Arena Theater's Blues On The Coast is proud to present diva Candye Kane. She may still be a well kept mainstream secret but in underground blues circles, Candye Kane's diva status is legendary. She has been making music professionally for over two decades and toured worldwide since 1992, performing for amazingly diverse audiences.
The mother of two grown sons, one who plays drums in her touring band, Candye is a colorful mixture of the traditional and the eclectic. Kane's bumpy road to success has been a twisted journey of obstacles and adversity. She survived an extremely dysfunctional childhood. Raised in East L.A., Kane became a product of her environment, dabbling in the gang culture and becoming an unwed mother at the age of 17. In spite of her rocky beginnings, she never lost the sight of her desire to sing. She went from punk rock to country bands. Then she discovered the brash blues stylings of Big Maybelle, Ruth Brown, Big Mama Thornton, Etta James (who Candye has opened for several times) and Bessie Smith. The blues was a place where women had colorful pasts. Candye Kane found a home in the blues. Since 1992 she has recorded 8 CDs including "White Trash Girl" and "Guitar'd and Feathered."
Candye's live show is the stuff of legend. She honors the bold blues women of the past with both feet firmly planted in the present. We think you will agree that Candye Kane is just what the doctor ordered. She is a diva who is here to help us celebrate our sexuality, shatter stereotypes, live our dreams and have a damn good time on the dance floor. For a great story go to www.candyekane.com
