As filmed by Camara Dia Holloway, some footage from my Standing Rock water protectors benefit concert, the Sacred Water Medicine Show, is now viewable on this site; click the tab for MUSIC.
This song, “Cabin In The Pines,” which is based on a once-real jookhouse in Southwest Georgia but is my sonic & lyrical paean to Appalachia / Affrilachia, remains one of my most favorite songs I have written to date. If you have not gotten the Native Americana / Country / Americana album that features it yet, Stampede, it is still at my CD Baby store: STAMPEDE available here!
Playing herein @ Decolonize This Place / Artists Space in TriBeCa with my new band, Cactus Rose (minus Brother Evan on drums!) #mniwiconi #NoDAPL #ProtectTheSacred
Y’all, I have been in the innermost songwriting cave for a spell & having some long overdue reconnection with kin…Yet today, with the arrival of Manhattanhenge, the summer’s really begun for me & shall be beaming out some vital Light for the season come Sundown. This is the time in NYC that transplanted southerners like myself — & my late mother, whose Gemini Soul & 2nd June bornday we shall be celebrating next week @ Chaka Khan in Prospect Park — feel most at peace, able to commune with the Green. Looking forward to connecting, at my upcoming shows & down by the riverside!
Peace & Love, Kandia*
Bringin’ it back to where it all began: Stampede, the debut album recorded in remembrance of my southern belle Mum, plus two singles from my forthcoming follow-up Canyons — “Tula” & “Bury My Heart At Rock Creek Park” — are available from CD Baby HERE
Checkout my Spanish-language song “Tula” – a reference to Los Atlantes de Tula in Mexico – the first single to emerge from the sequel to STAMPEDE, which was released digitally around this time last year. Keep “Tula” in your soundwave just in time for Cyber Monday (in the US) and as a fine holiday season dance jam with a unique twang twist on rock en Espanol. Get your “Tula” here: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/kandiacrazyhorse2
