Candy Lee is an award winning, "golden voiced" singer/songwriter who combines her love for folk, jazz, indie, and conscious music to create her own original style. The first thing you'll notice when you hear Candy Lee is her voice- timeless, entrancing, and ethereal. She Lee pulls you in with her sweet, catchy melodies and moving music, but it is her smart, creative lyrics that deserve a second listen. Her music has been described as delightfully conscious and "philosophically giddy."
Candy Lee plays mostly solo these days, but also tours with her band from Fayetteville, AR. Collectively, they are known as Candy Lee and the Sweets. The band helps to create a more funky and psychedelic sound, which sets the mood for the main attraction of sultry three part female vocal harmonies.
Candy Lee is the 2011 NorthWest Arkansas Music Award winner for best female singer/songwriter and best female singer in a band. Her album, The Gate, which features members of the Sweets, was also nominated for Album of the Year.
She can also be seen around Fayetteville singing with the gypsy jazz group, Block St. Hot Club!
