First Listen: Candace Bellamy tries “Tenderness” on classic cover

We introduced SoulTrackers to singer Candace Bellamy a few years ago with her wonderful album A Thousand Shades of Blue. And we’ve been following this talented singer – who is also a physician! – ever since.

Candace is working on a new album due for release this Fall, and she kicks it off with a familiar song. Working with French producer Jahta Manilla, she has created a killer cover of Otis Redding’s classic “Try a Little Tenderness.” Candace’s version has a soulful groove topped by her gentle, expressive vocals, giving new life to an old favorite.

Candace tells us about the cut: “Doing a cover of a well known tune by one of my favorite artists of all time, not to mention working on the project with a new producer who lived five thousand miles away was both exciting and terrifying. But I loved every minute of it. I hope you enjoy our interpretation of a classic and that we've made Otis proud.
