There are those who sing and then there are those who were made to sing. Candice Russell was made to sing. She is a 21 year old pop singer and songwriter who has just released her debut album called So Much More. Her seemingly effortless, rich, pure vocal tone, her smooth vocal runs and the passion that comes through in her voice, make for an extremely satisfying listening experience. As one label executive said, “She is very easy on the ears.”
Candice’s songwriting is real, honest, and vulnerable, yet she is positive, determined and confident. She knows who she is, but she doesn’t see herself as above others. She sings, writes and performs to make others feel good about themselves, not to make others feel good about her. “I want to reach people with music that I have written and hopefully uplift and help them,” she says. All of the songs on this new album are original and from the context of her own real life experiences.
The artists that have impacted Candice are Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Paramore, Colbie Caillat and Carrie Underwood. The combination of these artists and what she has learned from her personal mentors and coaches has helped Candice find a unique blend that has resulted in her own cool and appealing sound.
