Candie began her long musical career singing at the age of 13 in Salinas, California. She soon became a popular staple in the Country Music Scene because of her talent and unique style. Because of her talent and unique style, she began playing music with the likes of Vince Gill, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, and many other Country greats. Gospel music had always tugged on her heart, even while living a secular life far from the calling that God had for her as she struggled through a culture that embraced drugs, alcohol, and the wild lifestyle of a traveling musician.
Even though she wrestled with the secular lifestyle she had always felt God calling her to use her talent to share His message, so in 2016 with the help of friends, family, and mentors she released her CD “Good Mornin’ Jesus” and since writing that album, she has been taking His songs all over the world to share His Love, His Message and His Music through her ministry, “By Faith”.
Through music Candie can bring a message with real life compassion and humor infused by the Love of God.
