Singer-songwriter Kandace Springs is a fresh new voice in contemporary Jazz. WCLK has played her music from the beginning, and she is a part of tonight's sold-out WCLK Benefit Concert at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. She stopped by the station this morning to talk about it all with Morris Baxter, including the influence of vocalists such as Nina Simone, Norah Jones, Eva Cassidy and Luther Vandross on her style.
