Candice Anitra hates how social constructs put people in boxes, including rigidly corrugated musical categories, so the left-of-soul singer-songwriter bucks convention rather than live as a square peg in a round hole. Hailing from Philadelphia, the Brooklyn-based songstress was reared in a musical family whose voices were limited to home and church. After high school, Candice came to NYC to attend NYU's heralded Tisch School of the Arts. There, she met Ion & Sanford, who as Force Theory Productions scored award-winning films Favela Rising and Jesus Camp, and later jumped to produce Candice's 2008 EP Easier, including the risqué single 'Objectify.' Anitra followed her maiden voyage with the 2010 full-length debut, Bark Then Bite, a critically acclaimed odyssey of dynamic sound and talent, which was produced by Joel Hamilton (Soulive, Matisyahu, Blakroc, Talib Kweli, Nina Simone). Most recently, Candice headed back to the studio with Hamilton to record Big Tree, including the supercharged lead single 'Love Sick,' the funk-laden Haiti tribute 'Today,' and the breathtaking a cappella ballad 'I Hear Music.' The album takes the emotional bumps in the road and uses euphonic bits of this and that, a sacred pastiche art that Candice Anitra has mastered simply by looking within.
