Welcome to the official Candace Bellamy website!
What an awesome evening performing in the 1st Women in Austin Music Fest this past Thursday. Thanks to everyone who came and to Paula Maya for creating and organizing this amazing event!!
A physician by day and soul and blues singer by night, Bellamy took up singing as a hobby 12 years ago, paying dues in cover bands, musical theater (her role in an R&B version of “Porgy & Bess” impressed the New York Times), and with a one- woman show where she told stories of her life in between tunes.
Bellamy’s path then led to Austin, Texas where she has worked with many incredible songwriters including Ruth Carter (composer for Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robert Palmer, and John Mayall), bass playing legend Jimi Calhoun (player with Dr. John, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Wilson Pickett, Sly Stone) and Jake Langley (Roberta Flack, Willie Nelson, k.d. lang).
Bellamy utilized the lessons she learned from her songwriting mentors for her EP, Undone, released on May 5, 2017, writing songs about life she had seen and experienced through others. Undone is the story behind the story and how so many times we don’t see or have any idea what people are dealing with but that even in the midst of struggle, there is hope.
