About Candice Hoyes
Candice Hoyes is poised to “shape the artist-cum-activist role.” (NPR) In 2020, she released “Zora’s Moon,” the first single of her mostly self-penned EP. This jaunty retro soul escapade is her response to this moment: an ode to Black girlhood. Candice brings otherworldly vocalism to her new single, “Waiting for the World (Tired),” which features the 1930 poem “Tired” by Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes set in a lyrical Afro Futuristic soundscape. Candice is a 2020 winner of the inaugural NYC Women’s Fund for Film, Music and Media. She has performed with, opened for and recorded with artists ranging from Lin Manuel Miranda to Chaka Khan to Wynton Marsalis. Candice was commissioned by the National Black Theater and Michelle Obama’s When We All Vote to co-create a new work to empower Black voters leading into the 2020 US Presidential election. Candice will be embarking on her Northeast Tour this coming March. Visit Candice’s website to learn more about her and her upcoming performances
