Featured Artist: Candi Staton

-Candi Staton-

"There are southern soul voices and there are southern soul voices. Raw and ravaged, Candi Staton's is one of the signature sounds of the genre. It's a voice with a tear in it, the cry of a woman wounded by life, by men, by woes turned inward."

A voice drenched with rich depth and songs tinged with sorrow and romance gone awry, Candi Staton remains one of the many unsung female soul singers of the era. Her dichotomous presence, both sonically and lyrically, is one of both vulnerability in identity juxtaposed with an undeniable fortitude and clarity. This song will be on your repeat, guaranteed.
