“Put Down The Foot” is the first single from the upcoming album In My Lane by Candace Bellamy
“Put Down The Foot” by Candace Bellamy is the “Song of The Day” at KUTX, Austin and KHDX, Saint Louis!
“Varied and intriguing, and one of the early winners of 2013. Highly Recommended.” – Soul Tracks
Austin-based singer Candace Bellamy has completed production on of the music video for “Put Down The Foot,” the first single from her upcoming debut album In My Lane. The clip was shot in Brooklyn last week and will make its premiere later this month. The track was recently featured as a “Song of The Day” by community radio stations KUTX, Austin and KHDX, Saint Louis.
A physician by day who took up singing 10 years ago, Bellamy paid 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. Her path led to 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), who mentored her, and became her co-writers.
In My Lane, the debut album from Candace Bellamy, is scheduled for release on May 14th, 2013. The album’s first single “Put Down The Foot” is streaming now.
Candace is available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
