This Dutch saxophonist CANDY DULFER is known around the world for her powerful and high-energy concerts. She collaborates with the biggest artists, performs with her own band across the world in sold-out clubs and on the largest festival stages, received a Grammy Award nomination for her debut album ‘Saxuality’, sold over 2.5 million albums worldwide since, and has had several number 1 hits in the USA.
She rose to fame with high profile collaborations with Dave Stewart (‘Lily was here’) and Prince. With Prince she performed at Jay Leno’s Tonight Show, played dozens of shows in the USA and all over Europe, and recorded on several of his albums. Together with Prince and Beyoncé she performed at the Grammy Awards ceremony.
Candy started another exciting new chapter in her versatile career with the release of her album ‘Crazy’ in the fall of 2011. The close collaboration with Black Eyed Peas musical director and producer Printz Board forms the foundation of the daring new sound of the album. After the album’s release she and her band toured in the USA, Japan, Europe, Russia, the Baltic States, and – for the first time in her career – in South America.
