Candice Chantrell arrives on the threshold of the music world with her debut album entitled: “Behind the Mic.” Loaded with energy and lyrical conviction, this songstress is prepared to charge audiences with music that is both creative and inventive while infusing elements of R&B/Pop with flavours of Hip Hop, Rock, and Funk, making for a sound that is truly unique.
“Behind the Mic” is a project that began in 2006 when Candice sat down with a good friend in a small coffee shop. Over simple java talk, the vision of her debut album was born. The goal: to record an album that would showcase Candice’s remarkable vocal ability, give a voice to her thoughts and dreams, and demonstrate mainstream music that maintains a sense of depth and sophistication.
Now residing in Toronto, Candice Chantrell is a new & driven solo singer/songwriter throwing herself into the world of R&B/Pop with her own personal style, energy, and passion. The album features a variety of lyrical tones written & arranged by Jesse Peters ("Lounge MD” from Paramedic) and co-written by Candice Chantrell. The combination of these two musicians leaves the album with an overall sense of empowerment while exploring the concepts of independence, personal strength, and pursuing your dreams.
