Candy Lee grew up in the swamps of Florida but heard the call of the mountains even as a girl. She later found home nestled in the Ozarks, where she chiseled out a name for herself as one of the area's most prominent, award-winning folk-roots musicians. A multi-instrumentalist with a diverse musical background, Candy Lee takes roots music off the shelf, dusts it off and puts a shine on it with a modern polish and a unique, crystal clear voice that leaves listeners feeling like they’ve had a breath of fresh air.

Candy Lee was the 2011 Northwest Arkansas Music Award Winner for Best Female Singer/Songwriter and Best Female Vocalist in a Band. She was a finalist for the Song of Arkansas Contest in 2014, and a Grassy Hill New Folk Finalists at the 2015 Kerrville Folk Festival. Candy Lee was 2018’s winner of the Ozark Regional Songwriter Showcase. Her duo, Melody Pond was nominated for the 2018 Arkansas Country Music Awards for Best Acoustic Act, where they performed Candy Lee's song, "Here in Arkansas.”
