Singer / Songwriter: Interscope (USA)
A story of undeniable talent and determination, born and raised in the small town of Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, Candice Pillay has never been one to take no for an answer. Her journey from Africa to America was anything but easy, but her relentless sprit and passion for music drove her to accomplish in less than a decade what few musicians accomplish in their entire careers.
Having worked with some of the most iconic names in the music industry today, including Dr. Dre, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Rihanna, Christina Aguilera, ScHoolboy Q, Timbaland, Anderson .Paak, Tinie Tempah, Calvin Harris, and many more, she’s perfected her craft with and under some of the most experienced and technical musical umbrellas in recent history.
Between finishing her upcoming solo EP and writing a slew of soon-to-be-released tracks for some of the top artists on the globe today. Candice developed the sound for the critically acclaimed boy band “Why Don’t We” from the ground up independently. After successfully releasing five EPs on the group, Why Don’t We signed to Atlantic Records last year followed by their international tour for her ep “Invitation” which was widely successful. Now, almost 25 songs later and counting, their exponential growth is heavily in thanks to Pillay’s determination and keen ability to see “the next big thing” before anyone else does.
Pillay is set to release her next album along with tour dates in 2020 as well as continue to co-produce, write, and redefine artist development with many up and coming artists around the world.
