Get comfortable and enjoy the ride for this one… Candice Anitra is truly unique and delivers something special for our latest Acoustic Gold session.
Accompanied by the gifted Wes Mingus on guitar Candice shows off her multifaceted musical talent and songwriting skills. In theatrical fashion she rocks out three of her originals, “Objectify” from an older EP, “Angry Sea of Me” and “Love Sick” from her most recent album Big Tree. Additionally she decided to do a rendition of MAGIC!‘s smash hit “Rude” – which turns out to be one of the best, if not THE best cover out there of this song!
I’d describe her voice and style from haunting and dramatic to bluesy and funky. You can tell that Candice is feeling every single lyric of her song, basically acting out each verse. Soulful to the core, intense in her delivery Candice Anitra is one to watch. Make sure to check out her music and learn more about her on our NYCROPHONE Artist page. Please share, comment and like to support the artist!
“What I find the most joy in is sharing my most vulnerable parts,” Candice Anitra says. “To me, that’s more representative of the full spectrum of human emotion. I’d rather have that than being traditional and R&B straight up and down. I’m messy! I don’t fit and I never have. I don’t always have to be provocative, but I can be. I like to explore the masculine, the feminine, and the androgynous. That, to me, seems like a fair representation of me as a full artist. This is my peace.”
