Artist/writer, Candace Storch, has always had music in her life. Growing up listening to her mother sing to Michael Jackson, her uncle play the guitar, and having her father, a self proclaimed audiophile, constantly breaking in his newest, cutting edge equipment, there was music involved in everyday of Candace's upbringing. In middle school and high school, her love of r & b and hip hop was an intrinsic part of her musical DNA. She became known as 'the chick that makes slow jams tapes'. She started honing her skills with voice and piano lessons at The Brooklyn/Queens Conservatory Of Music. She recorded some songs and soon after that, got introduced to her current writing partner/producer, Peter Monk. Their work together enabled them to get a distribution deal and signed to Release Musiq in 2013. Her vivid imagination combined with her creative storytelling skills quickly engage the listener via her clever wit and subtle sass. By writing and helping vocally produce all these different expressions of music for herself and other singers, she is able to implement what the artist stylistically wants and lyrically needs. ‘I want people to see, not only hear, the music’ she said.
As a solo artist, Candace raps and sings. Her sweet voice juxtaposed with her fast, edgy, New York based rap flow gives her a style and feel all her own. Candace wrote and sang featured vocals on "Once In A Lifetime" and "Keep On Dancing". The video was featured on ‘Promo Only’ Mainstream Dance, Spring of 2013 and "Keep On Dancin" got on the UK's Most Played Dance Charts 9She went under the moniker Candy) She is also a member and main writer of the group, The Dub Chix. Their single "Motormouth" has been played on Texas radio stations, overseas, and became the theme song to the new Motormouth smartphone app. Candace and Monk started the dancehall/reggae project, Bklyn South. which she co-writes, vocally produces, and sings background vocals on. The debut song of that project entitled "You're The One" debuted at #1 on zipDJ and stayed there for three weeks. It has been played by DJs in NY and several other countries, including the Caribbean.Their follow-up "Run Round Ya" got featured in many magazines like Kribbean.com, AromaMagUK and played on the biggest station in Jamaica, Zip 103 FM. That song put Bklyn South on many people's radar.
Candace co-writes all the Peter Monk releases, as well as sings background on most of them. Her new single "Starlight" is quickly getting excellent reaction and already playing on many online stations from Portugal to Italy. It debuted #1 on Kings Of Spins record pool and is quickly spreading with rapid fire. 'You can really hear the growth of her vocals on this track. It has the potential to be a big record,' said Monk. She is currently working a lot of new and exciting music so stay tuned!
