Raised in a dysfunctional, blue-collar family, Candye became a teenage mother, a pin up cover girl and a punk rock, hillbilly and blues-belting anarchist by the time she was just 21 years old. Ten cds, six record labels, millions of international road miles and countless awards later, Miss Kane has proven to be a true survivor as she scrambled her way to the top of the roots music heap, creating a world renowned reputation that has spanned two decades. She belts - growls - shouts - croons and moans from a lifetime of suffering and overcoming obstacles, and uses music as therapy; often writing and choosing material with positive affirmations that leave the audience feeling healed and exhilarated.
On her 2011 release, Sister Vagabond, Candye Kane once again delivers her heart on a platter. Kane presents a more mature and swinging collection of scorching blues and soul originals, searing with the young Laura Chavez's impressive guitar work. Kane takes us on a journey thru love, heartbreak, rejection and personal empowerment, colored in swampy and soulful earth tones that bring a new twist to old favorites (Brenda Lee's Sweet Nothings) and explore spookier and darker territory (Walkin' Talkin' Haunted House). Laura's guitar work stands out on these performances demonstrating maturity beyond her years. Kane and Chavez are a powerhouse duo to reckon with, exhibiting feminist strength and power in bucketfuls. Move over all you mannish boys....
Thank you Candye for continuing to make music, the world is a better place with it.
`Love Insurance' is an up-beat song telling the tale of our heroine pleading for the one insurance policy that the powers that be haven't yet been able to milk us on.
Laura Chavez and her blues guitar resonate along with Candye's beautiful voice to lift this album above anything she has done in recent years.
