At the age of eight Candace glommed onto theater after snatching the highly coveted role of the Virgin Mary in the 3rd grade nativity play. It was just the beginning of what proved to be a long tenure as resident “goody-two-shoes”, including stints as Dorothy, Alice and Little Red Riding Hood. Later, Candace studied music and did social work for a number of years. While accumulating upwards of 763 odd jobs, Candace eventually began making short films and writing songs.
In actuality, Candace Roberts is a San Francisco based singer/songwriter, filmmaker and cabaret performer. In 2014 she released a much acclaimed music video called “Not My City Anymore” about gentrification and economic inequality in San Francisco. Since the release of her 2010 CD, “Honeymoon for One”, Candace has been playing such local venues as the Fillmore, Cafe du Nord, the Lost Church, the Make-Out Room and the Red Devil Lounge. In addition to playing her own songs, Candace covers the American songbook, tells stories and plays ukulele with her longtime piano player Larisa Migachyov. Candace took up residency at Martuni’s Piano Bar in 2012 and she increasingly finds herself rocking the house concert circuit … as well as the funeral circuit!
