Singer/songwriter Candice Ivory is rocking the entertainment world again with the release of her second CD, entitled "Questography" (the path, vol. 2).
Born just outside of Memphis, Tennessee, Candice Ivory followed in the footsteps of countless musical legends by getting her start singing on Beale Street. By the time she had graduated from high school, Ivory had become a late-night icon on the historic street performing with the jam-band CYC. It was Ivory''s passion and dedication for not just blues, funk and rock but also jazz that secured her spot in Betty Carter''s Jazz Ahead Program in 2000 and ultimately prompted her to move to New York City to further her career in 2001. The relationships Ivory formed in the Big Apple led to the release of her debut album "path-undefined" (one of the top Memphis discs of 2003).
The much-anticipated follow-up to "path-undefined," "Questography" represents the next step in Candice Ivory''s artistic evolution. Recorded in New York City and Memphis, "Questography" provides a complete picture of Candice Ivory''s musical talents--as a vocalist, composer, keyboardist, drum programmer, and producer--and also complements her well-deserved reputation as a dynamic live performer. Music lovers who have encountered Candice Ivory on TV, on the radio, in print, and at her shows in New York City and Memphis will need to pick up "Questography."
Candice Ivory''s music covers a wide range of human emotions and experiences: listen to the thumb-piano-laced energetic opening track Always; the no-wave, edgy rock song New Shoes; the spacious, soaring Affirmation (already in heavy rotation on London radio); and the synth-driven, drum''n''bass title cut Questography. Southern soul, international club sounds, and East Coast post-rock are just a few of the musical influences that shape the sonic journey of "Questography."
"Questography" (the path, vol. 2) is currently available in Memphis area record stores and online. For more info on Candice Ivory and "Questography," including pictures, sound clips, press reviews, and details on upcoming shows, please visit the new website.
