Candye Kane
Waterfront Blues Festival
Portland, OR.
July 5, 2009

Recorded from KBOO FM a local all volunteer radio station. There are always reception problems and drops in sound from this station. Maybe it's just where I live. Anyway, I have tried to find and fix all the drops in sound. This year not all the first day was broadcast. Not sure why. Etta James canceled and was replaced by Keb Mo' but his recording contract wouldn't allow his broadcast.

Please understand that I don't know all these bands and it's hard for me to come up with all the set list's. I'll do my best and ask for help when needed.

Linage: FM tuner straight to HD>CD Wave>TLH>FLAC>torrent.

This is a big undertaking for me every year and I love doing it. Please leave your comments, I enjoy reading them. Enjoy the tunes, twofthrs

"Candye Kane has that big, brassy voice that has authority and sass; the kind of thing men like because its seductive and women like because its powerful." – BB King to the San Diego Reader

"A voice that is a natural wonder – like the Grand Canyon." - The Washington Post

"Candye Kane may identify as a white trash girl but her music is most certainly high class." – Jazz and Blues Report

Raised in a dysfunctional, blue-collar family, Candye Kane became a teenage mother, a pin-up cover girl and a punk rock, hillbilly and blues-belting anarchist by the time she was just 21 years old. Eight CDs, six record labels, millions of international road miles and countless awards later, Miss Kane has proven to be a true survivor as she scrambled her way to the top of the roots music heap, creating a world renowned reputation that has spanned two decades.

A colorful mixture of the traditional and the eclectic, Kane cut her musical teeth in the early 80’s onstage with Hollywood musicians and friends, Social Distortion, Dwight Yoakum, Dave Alvin, The Blasters, X, Fear and Los Lobos, to name just a few. While raising two sons, this role model for the disenfranchised, championed large-sized women, fought for the equal rights of sex workers and the GLBT community and inspired music lovers everywhere. Her fans are a mixture of true outsiders: bikers, blues fans, punk rockers, drag queens, fat girls, queers, burlesque dancers, porn fans, sex workers, rockabilly and swing dancers, grey-haired hippies, sex positive feminists and everyday folk of all ages, who flock to see Candye and hear her musical messages of love, hope and empowerment.

Kane’s ninth CD release, Superhero hits the streets June 17th on the premiere West Coast blues label, Delta Groove. The CD was produced by Kane and 26-year-old guitar virtuoso Laura Chavez who also plays in her live band. It features guest performances by Kid Ramos, Dave Gonzales and Mitch Kashmar along with Kanes’ rhythm section featuring eldest son, Evan Caleb on drums and bass veteran, Paul Loranger. This newest effort is chock full of the songs of triumph and empowerment that have made Kane a favorite with enlightened congregations everywhere.
