Biography

Emerging from Southern California comes multi-talented singer, songwriter Kandace Ferrel, whose artistry has been seen from Los Angeles to Nashville. Self taught at a young age, Kandace quickly began writing and composing music. She recorded her first album at the age of 13. Whether behind keys or attached to her guitar, it is very clear that this 20 year old ‘phenom’ will continue to march forward as one of the top musicians of her time.

Playing endless gigs in Southern California has lead Kandace to an overwhelming recognition and several nominations from The Los Angeles Music Awards, The Orange County Music Awards, The Southern California Music Awards, and The Inland Empire Music Awards. One of these nominations got Kandace the 2006 Best Female Artist at The Inland Empire Music Awards.

Lyrics

Who We Are

Written By: kandace ferrel

You and I are driving down the highway late tonight
the stereo is loud and i am staring out my window
please don't look back we are on the run
they're calling now it's just begun

they're wonderin where we are they're wonderin where we've gone they're trying to figure out who we are but no one knows
their wondering where we are the road it seems it goes forever, forever's not too far

Here we stand together hand in hand our eyes connected
birds they sing their soft sweet melody i swear he loves me that's what he told me please don't look back we are on the run
they're calling out now it's just begun

they're wonderin where we are wondering where we've gone they're trying to figure out who we are but no one knows
they're wonderin where we are the road it seems it goes forever forever's not too far...

They're wonderin where we are
Wonderin where we've gone
trying to figure out who we are
but no one knows
they're wonderin where we are
wonderin where we've gone
they're tryin to figure out who we are but no knows
they're wonderin who we are
but the road it goes forever
forever's not too far...

Almost Home

Written By: kandace ferrel

when you give all you can
and you feel nothings good enough when you don't understand
why your life is in someone's hands don't let it bring you down tonight

just close your eye's you'll see your beautiful destiny this will be over soon this i do promise you your coming home your almost here...

does it hurt when you cry
from the pain that's been hiding
inside does your body feel weak from the lack of your sleep?
do you ever just want to know why? don't let it bring you down tonight

just close your eye's you'll see your beautiful destiny this will be over soon this i do promise you you're coming home you're almost here

just close your eye's you'll see your beautiful destiny this will be over soon this i do promise you you're coming back your almost home...

Only You

Written By: kandace ferrel

He takes my breath away every time we talk
i want to be with him each day i'm not
two years have passed and still you're the only one the only one who makes me laugh

only you will love me
only you can touch me
only you will love me nobody else

the moonlight dances on the window shadows fade
and when the night is over and it's time to say goodnight i never wanna leave you
i never want to leave you no...
ten years have passed
and still you're the only one
the only one who makes me laugh

only you will love me
only you can touch me
only you will love me nobody else

your years have passed and you were the only one
the only one who made me laugh

only you did love me
only you did touch me
only you did love me nobody else..... nobody else....nobody..

Run To You

Written By: kandace ferrel

i don't care just what you're made of
i don't care just who you are
i just want to be myself no other
i don't want to be embarrassed
i don't want to embarrass you
i just need some company to talk to and when the lights go out and everyone's asleep

i wanna run to you
i wanna run to you
(repeat)

when the lights go out and everyone's asleep
