Kandle is the solo project of Victoria BC native Kandle Osborne, a songstress who’s elegiac and moody brand of singing and songwriting reflect a maturity well beyond her years. Having grown up listening to artists such as Tom Waits and PJ Harvey in a richly musical family, Kandle’s artistic nature found its outlet early where she devoted herself ruthlessly to playing and creating music; first as a teenager learning songs in the cafeteria and then eventually as a young woman, teaching herself to sing.
Her new EP Damned If I Do speaks to the loners and the forgotten, navigating the less-travelled corners of sound and feeling with bold, uncompromising vision. Her music provides a light for the lost – ablaze and raging, illuminating the places angels fear to tread.
Kandle’s EP, Damned If I Do, was produced by: John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile, Phosphorescent), Sam Goldberg (Broken Social Scene) and Devon Portielje (Half Moon Run).
