Candice Sand will try to shift local’s focus from Indie music to pop music as she makes her way to The Loaf on Saturday August 23 to promote the release of her new album Against Concrete Walls.

The Torontonian released her album on July 29, describing her sound as commercial pop with hints of R&B.

“It also has a lot of positive messages about life, and life being beautiful and appreciating the moment,” Sand said.

Her Canada-wide three-week tour began in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on August 11 and will be finishing up on August 30 in Melville, Saskatchewan.

Singing in Golden, Fernie, Kelowna, Penticton and Vancouver, Sand said she’s looking forward to traveling throughout our mountainous province.

“It’s going to be a ton of fun, I have no doubts,” she said. “I think B.C.’s amazing, it’s beautiful. I like to call B.C. the ‘Miss Congeniality’ of provinces because everybody likes B.C.”

Although the Ontarian has never been to Fernie, she said she’s looking forward to promoting her music in a town that is supportive of live music.

“I hear the community is very friendly and I’m always drawn to that because I’m from a town of 5000 people and I’m used to that nice, home feeling,” she said. “I’m so excited.”
