Candice has been making things her whole life but has only recently become comfortable calling herself an artist, since making things and teaching people how to make things has, over time, become the only way she earns a living. Her relationship to music is very similar to her relationship to art in general. She’s been making music actively her whole life, but has only recently allowed it to have a fairly prominent place in her mind and her life. She used to sing a lot in high school, traveling in competitions with Emily, where they often brought home awards. She played bass years ago in one of several incarnations of the Goddamn Shame, and has appeared briefly and sporadically on a handful of recordings of friends’ bands over the years between Kankakee and Chicago.
