Kirstin Candy
Kirstin Candy
Learning the keyboard while growing up in Gainesville, FL, Kirstin Candy had always been interested in learning how to play the piano. Inspired by Elton John, she began taking lessons and, after her family moved to California, she decided to become a concert pianist. Excelling at her attempts, she also garnered valuable singing experience in several choirs and music classes. After going to college and getting a degree in political science, she formed Circus Frequency and began playing around California. Still yearning to become a singer/songwriter à la Elton John, she left the group and began writing her own material. She sold music to several films and gigged regularly, eventually collaborating with producer Don Smith on her debut album, Another Sweet Mess. Released on Escalator Records, it came out in the summer of 2002.

Five albums later, Kirstin Candy has lived and breathed this industry. With a nationwide tour under her belt, airplay in dozens of cities, and sessions with the top names in the biz - the word is out on Candy's music. Out of her homebase in Santa Barbara, CA, Kirstin offers a fresh look at her songwriting, with "La Vie En Rouge", the latest and most profound work to date.
