Kandace Springs has “a voice that could melt snow,” as Prince once said.

The acclaimed vocalist is set to release her new album Run Your Race in April. It follows 2020’s The Women Who Raised Me, which found Springs performing the music of icons like Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Sade, Bonnie Raitt and Ella Fitzgerald. Run Your Race, meanwhile, is full of Springs’ own songs.

Ahead of her performance in Brampton on Thursday, Feb. 15, Springs joined us to talk about her latest work.
