The Drake Underground
- Time & Place
is the solo project of Victoria BC native Kandle Osborne, a songstress
whose elegiac and moody brand of singing and songwriting reflect a
maturity well beyond her years. Having grown up in a richly musical
family, Kandle’s artistic nature became evident early on in her study of
photography and her love of music.
Kandle met her musical partner and co-producer Sam Goldberg Jr, (Broken Social Scene, Yardlets) in 2010, after he approached her to take press shots for one of his musical projects; she agreed, on the condition that he play on some songs she had recorded. Goldberg found himself locked in a basement studio for days working with Kandle, recording guitar and bass, the two of them naturally complementing each other in weaving together a somber, haunting world of longing vocals and dark, eerie guitar lines. Produced by her father, 54-40’s Neil Osborne, Kandle’s debut EP was released to critical acclaim in 2012.
Following the EP’s release, Kandle and the band embarked on tours throughout Europe and Canada including shows at CMJ, Osheaga, Pop Montreal and M for Montreal. Kandle spent much of 2013 recording her debut full-length album, which was co-produced by Neil Osborne and Sam Goldberg Jr. The album, In Flames, will be released on March 4 2014 via Dare To Care Records.
