Candi Carpenter

Idioma disponible: inglés
With a strong voice that garnered notice as a preteen, Candi Carpenter's passionate accounts of betrayal, empowerment, and monsters both real and figurative were rooted in the country music tradition before moving into alternative territory. A dalliance with Sony Music Nashville produced the lauded "Burn the Bed" in 2016. Their gradual shift in sound coincided with a series of collaborations with Brandi Carlile culminating in 2021's When the Asteroid Comes EP, which still embraced twang, as did the duo outing Here Comes Church of Roswell with Josh Doyle. Going the independent route, they next addressed identity, gender roles, and sexual orientation on 2022's "Exorcist" and 2023's "Novels About Vampires," both of which embraced a more dedicated alternative pop/rock sound. Candi Carpenter was born in Toledo, Ohio and grew up in Lansing, Michigan. Raised in a musical family, they began taking music lessons at the age of six, learning to play saxophone and piano. Carpenter played in bands and sang in choirs both at church and in school, performed in the family's band, and developed a keen talent at a young age. When Carpenter was in sixth grade, they bluffed their way on-stage at a Vince Gill concert to yodel for the country star; by age 11, they'd been discovered by a record producer, who signed them to a contract. At 15, Carpenter left school and relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, where they were playing local honky tonks despite being underage. Veteran country artist Jack Greene heard Carpenter and hired them as part of his band, where they acted as his duet partner. Carpenter toured regularly with Greene, including several appearances at the Grand Ol' Opry. However, they grew frustrated with the terms of their production and management deals, which included little say in their own creative future. Determined to assert creative independence, Carpenter cut ties with their managers, wriggled out of a bad marriage, and began working multiple day jobs to finance work on recordings that would allow them to follow their heart as a musician and songwriter. In 2014, Carpenter landed a deal with CTK Management, and a recording contract with Sony Music Nashville soon followed. In November 2016, they released their first single for Sony, a bitter tale of a woman betrayed called "Burn the Bed." It was well-received by publications like Rolling Stone, which named Carpenter a new country artist to watch. They remained rooted in country on a pair of Brandi Carlile-produced songs, "The Astronaut" and belted ballad "Little Sparrow," in 2019. A collaborative EP with Carlile that bridged country, folk, and adult alternative pop, When the Asteroid Comes, appeared on CTK Records in 2021. The same year brought a five-song EP, Here Comes Church of Roswell, on Studio 42 under the moniker of Church of Roswell, Carpenter's alt-country duo with Josh Doyle. In 2022, the singer and songwriter signed with House of 42 (under Red Light Management) and indie label A-Frame Records, forecasting a further shift in sound. Taking a form more in line with alternative pop/rock, the identity-themed "Exorcist" saw release in December of that year, with the like-minded "Novels About Vampires" following in March of 2023. A tour in support of Rainbow Kitten Surprise kicked off in May.
