We’re traveling out to the edge of country music once again.
This time we’re focusing on Kandia Crazy Horse, an artist that you could classify as a little country, a little soul and maybe some Americana.
But I think we’ll just stick with the country designation. It’s her brand of country and it’s really good.
Here is the song.
California – Kandia Crazy Horse
This seems like a love song for someone in California or for the state itself. Either way, we all feel this kind of attachment to a place that means something special to us.
Often it’s our home state where we spent our childhood. But sometimes it can be a place that makes us feel safe and happy. It can be because we met someone special there. It could be that we made it there in a professional sense or found really good friends.
There are a number of reasons we could feel this way about a place.
The other thing you’ll notice immediately about this song is the voice. It’s one of a kind and I really like it.
As you’ll notice – this is not a voice you’ll hear often in country music. It’s out on the edge, but that’s what makes it appealing. It’s grainy and drenched in soul.
Give it another listen and then come back and share your thoughts in the comments.
