Candy Lee is a "golden voiced" singer/songwriter who truly has her own unique style. After a live performance, many people ask her "What do you call that? What's your genre?" She often responds with, "Ozark-Indie-Folk-Jazz." That might sound like a jumble, but it blends together quite nicely. It's a witchy brew of Ozark mountain feels, jazzy vocals, and folksy lyrics, with an indie twist. Her incredible vocal range lends to the tenderest lilting love songs, driving foot-stompers, and even powerful blues belters.
Candy Lee is a 2011 Northwest Arkansas Music Award Winner for Best Female Singer/Songwriter and Best Female Vocalist in a Band. She was also a Grassy Hill New Folk Finalist in 2015. Her song, "Here in Arkansas," was among the finalists of the Song of Arkansas Contest in 2013, along with American Idol sensation, Barrett Baber (who won the competition).
Candy Lee is also in a duo, Melody Pond, with singer/songwriter, Emily Rowland. The two take turns singing their original songs while the other sings back up harmonies, and plays along on their respective instruments. They create a full sound between the two of them, playing foot and hand percussion all at the same time. Their harmonies are unrivaled, and so tight they often get mistaken for sisters. http://melodypondmusic.com
