Candice Anitra

Singer Candice Anitra is a modern musician. Labels or genres just confuse the impact of such a powerful talent. Her music is described as a mellifluous yet audacious blend of all the delicious yet often overlooked spaces between the genres. She has a Motown-esque vibe, is a left-of-soul singer-songwriter and embodies the subtle rapture of Joan Armatrading, the robust confidence of Meshell Ndegeocello. Ms. Anitra is on her way up so be sure to catch this performance.
