New & Next: Meet Jazzy Soul Songstress, Kandace Springs

Springs counts Nina Simone, Sade and Prince among her influences. So you can imagine what happened when His Purple Highness recently handpicked her to play with his band, 3rdEyeGirl, at Paisley Park, after listening to her music online. The Nashville native says she’s ready to “bring back old-school soul” in a “new-school way.” Here she performs her latest single, “Forbidden Fruit” from her forthcoming self-titled four-song EP (out Sept. 30).
