Dutch saxophonist CANDY DULFER continues to push boundaries with the November 2016 release of her new album ‘Together (is all we got)’. The album was inspired by all that’s great in jazz, disco, soul, dance and r&b, but is also a contemporary interpretation of what’s happening in music and the world today.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 26 years since Candy Dulfer rose to fame with her high-profile collaborations with Dave Stewart (the worldwide number 1 smash “Lily was here”) and of course the legendary Prince, with whom she continued to work on studio sessions, TV and award show appearances, and on concert tours around the globe.
Candy has been fortunate to work with some of the biggest names in music, including Van Morrison, Maceo Parker, Sheila E., Mavis Staples, Lionel Richie, Beyoncé, Pink Floyd, Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, and many others.
Despite these high-profile collaborations, Candy mainly focused on her solo career, starting her own band at age 13 and touring the world ever since.
Her first solo album ‘Saxuality’ earned her a Grammy Award nomination, the combined world-wide sales of her solo albums top 2.5 million copies, and she has had several number 1 hits in the USA.
Whether she and her band play the biggest festival stages around the world, or an intimate jazz club around the corner in Amsterdam, her fans know that her concert is always the hottest ticket in town.
Candy’s new album TOGETHER is set to be released in Spring 2017
Candy Dulfer is available for shows in 2018
