Biography

Vocalist/songwriter CANDI LYNN has often been asked whether she considers herself more of a rapper or singer, and the New Jersey native’s response is that she likes to call her music “hip-pop.” Combining pop, rap, R&B and rock, the 21-year-old Candi has created a style that is distinctive, original and individualistic rather than generic or manufactured - and her originality is impossible to miss on her debut album, ILLMissBehavin, available on Ill Miss Musick (the independent label she co-owns with her mother/manager).

Accessible yet adventurous and risk-taking, ILLMissBehavin is the work of a versatile artist who loves to have fun but also strives for depth and substance. ILLMissBehavin, which was produced by Chris “The Hitman” Conway (known for his work with Eminem, Capone-N-Noreaga, Run-DMC and many others) underscores Candi’s hands-on approach. She co-wrote all 15 songs on the album and enjoyed much more creative input than most artists her age.
Stylistically, Candi has been described as a blend of Fergie, Pink and Britney Spears. Candi doesn’t disagree with those comparisons, although she points out that ILLMissBehavin doesn’t reflect anyone’s musical vision but her own.
“My music has a hint of Fergie, a hint of Britney and a hint of Pink,” Candi explains. “Fergie because of the rap element; Britney because of the sexy, fun, naughty element; Pink because of the rock element and the snarl and the raspiness that I sometimes have in my voice when I sing. I love Pink. She just says what she wants to say, and I love that about her. But I’m not trying to emulate any of them. I do my own thing, and I’m not trying to be anyone but myself.”

    Hop'n Pop'n sounds a little like Daft Punk's song Technologic. (Which I also love).
