*Singer and keyboardist Kandace Springs has premiered a new video for “West Coast,” one of the four songs on her self-titled debut EP out now on Blue Note Records. Springs also performed “West Coast” and the EP’s lead single “Love Got in the Way” last night on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!.”

Featured recently by Interview Magazine as their “Music Discovery” and tapped as an Essence Magazine “New & Next” artist, Springs is one to watch in 2015 as she draws on R&B, hip-hop, jazz, pop, and Latin to showcase her knack for merging old-school values with fresh and innovative styles. In an exclusive song premiere Entertainment Weekly praised “West Coast” as “buoyant neo-soul that combines a rollicking horn arrangement and a bumping rap beat.”

Early fans have also included Prince, who invited Springs to come perform at his legendary Paisley Park Studio in Minneapolis after seeing one of her YouTube videos. Ghostface Killah also featured Springs on his new album 36 Seasons and invited her to perform with him on “The Tonight Show” starring Jimmy Fallon.

The Kandace Springs EP is available now to stream or download.
