Candice Anitra

"Candice Anitra has a pure and beautiful instrument.  Producer aside, players aside, Candice's voice wins every time." -  Meshell Ndegeocello

Singer Candice Anitra is 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 oft overlooked spaces between the genres, Motown-esque vibe, left-of-soul singer-songwriter, embodying the subtle rapture of Joan Armatrading, the robust confidence of Meshell Ndegeocello.
