BC born singer-songwriter Kandle Osborne is catharsis personiYed. Embodying equal parts cabaret chanteuse and ambitious rock singer, she’s covered everything in her inky blues-in[uenced songs from heartbreak, sexual assault, chronic illness and a loss of power, providing an immense release for her listeners with her treacle dipped voice. Strong in[uences from the Yerce female greats of a gone era, Kandle writes, and sings exclusively with her heart; something so often void in the modern era of over produced perfection. Kandle sings honest and raw, vulnerable yet empowered, never afraid to pen even life’s heaviest moments. While her fourth album may have been recorded under extraordinary circumstances (under the Coronavirus pandemic lockdown), Kandle streamlined her focus and vision. She steps into her self worth with the conYdence of a true veteran who is capable of taking any situation and Ynding an opportunity for deeper emotional connection. If her past has provided catharsis, her future is all about empowerment. The ever-present cinematic quality to her music comes as no surprise, having both a Juno nomination for best music video and the Prism Prize under her belt for her song "Not Up To Me" off 2014's critically acclaimed album In Flames. She also appears in Jack White's 2018 music video for "Corporation". Growing up in the music industry as the daughter of Neil Osborne (5440) has provided Kandle’s artistry with a unique insight. There are no gimmicks here, no trite attempts at making playlist-friendly and disposable ear-candy. Instead, this is an artist at her most empowered and authentic. An artist who by sharing her own story of healing, can help us all do the same.
