Candice Hoyes is a classically trained jazz singer born in Jamaica, raised in Florida, and exploding onto the New York jazz scene. Equally elegant and strong, Candice’s voice is charismatic and intriguing; and, in her debut album, On a Turquoise Cloud, she sings like a melodic ribbon carefully woven through and dancing with the big band jazz instruments accompanying her.
Having known her since we were kids, it was always a privilege to see and hear Candice perform. Her voice is simply magnificent; but, catching up with her now was amazing! For her album, she didn’t just choose easy standards or even the most known songs from her muse, Duke Ellington. Nope… Not this Candice Hoyes! She did her research and found some rare Duke Ellington tracks that could express her musical journey in an innovative way. The album is complete in its offerings of a fully-executed concept, highly talented and accomplished instrumental accompaniments, and stunningly eclectic vocals. On this podcast, she talks about the experiences that developed her as an artist, her choices in developing her voice and album, and the adventures through the New York music scene.
