“Johnny” is the latest single from the upcoming album In My Lane by Candace Bellamy
“Bellamy’s calling card is her voice, a smoky, soulful instrument of joy.” – Austin Chronicle
“Varied and intriguing, and one of the early winners of 2013.” – Soul Tracks
“Johnny” is the latest single from the debut album In My Lane by Austin-based soul singer, Candace Bellamy. “Johnny is the guy from your neighborhood with all kinds of potential and promise,” Bellamy says of the song’s title character. “He falls in with the wrong crowd, he's headed for a bad ending, and he's also influencing the people around him with his bad decisions.”
The track is a co-write between Bellamy, Ruth Carter (composer for Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robert Palmer, and John Mayall), and legendary bassist Jimi Calhoun (player with Dr. John, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Wilson Pickett, and Sly Stone.) Check out the premiere via pop culture website Grungecake at this link. In My Lane is available as of today.
A physician for the military, Candace Bellamy took up singing a decade ago, paying dues in cover bands, musical theater, and a one-woman show where, in between tunes, she told stories of her dual life of music and military service. Bellamy’s path led her to songwriters Carter, Calhoun, and Jake Langley (Roberta Flack, Willie Nelson, k.d. lang), who mentored her, and became her co-writers.
Bellamy will appear live to perform songs from In My Lane on Austin’s community radio station KOOP this Wednesday evening, May 15th, at 8PM EST / 7PM CST. Listeners can tune in at http://www.koop.org. She will also perform a record release show at Austin’s Driskill Hotel the following evening, Thursday, May 16th, at 7PM CST.
