Talk To Me
by Kandace Springs
Last night was the kick-off of the new series (S49E01) of "Later...with Jools Holland". With Kings of Leon, Sting and ok, Jack White, it was actually a pretty boring episode, but there was one high light: the performance of 27-year-old, Blue Note recording artist Kandace Springs.

From the Blue Note website:
Nashville-based singer, songwriter and pianist Kandace Springs counts such stylists as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Roberta Flack and Norah Jones as her heroes, but as evidenced by her sparkling full-length Blue Note Records debut, Soul Eyes, Springs mimics none of them.

Instead Springs allows her comely alto to become a conduit that touches upon soul, jazz and pop while transforming those aforementioned influences into a personalized sound that reveals itself effortlessly. “The artists who have inspired me the most all sang so naturally,” Springs says. “That helped me find my own sound.”

I really liked the song 'Talk to Me' that she played. I juke another recording since I can not juke the Later recording, due to some silly block by the BBC. Here is the link to the Later recording: https://youtu.be/MwGikmk_w1Y

And I'm already looking forward to next week episode of Later... with Jools Holland, with Beth Orton, Madness and The Divine Comedy
