I've been writing and recording since 16 and engineering my own sessions in Protools since 18. As a new signee of Chris Anokute (Katy Perry, Iggy Azalea, Rihanna) in partnership between Young Forever & Pulse Recording, I am local to LA and consistently collaborating with some of the city's best artists, writers and producers in varied genres.
I can easily produce a great product in the time necessary, and in multiple formats. My voice is versatile and adapts as necessary for the style/vibe of the project. Experienced with songs for pitch, artists, occasion, license and sync. Vocals are recorded in ProTools at high quality industry standard. Can clean and pitch vocals as well.

The best vocalist I've worked with.
Candy is by far one of the best writers I have ever worked with. She is an AMAZING writer and she is fast. Her melodies and ideas are crazy good and I am 100% happy with the songs we worked on. On top of that she has an amazing personality and I will definitely be working with her soon!
She is the best. No question. As Queen B says, Boy bye!
Professional, on schedule vocals, creative, pleasant to work with, great hooks/melodies, Candy is the vocalist you need, seriously, she made my song get to the next level. Thanks a lot!
Candy takes her writing seriously! It's hard to ask a writer to deliver a radio sound and if you need that candy should be one of your go-to writers!! Great job!! Glad I made her apart of my project!!!
Candy is an awesome professional singer. She gave my music a real soulful feel and had great hooks.
Candy makes my productions sound better because of her amazing voice and melodies! She is extremely talented and fun to work with and be around!
As someone who has worked with Candy since she was 16 years old...I've watched her develop into an amazingly talented singer/songwriter. She can be summed up in one word....DOPE.
Candy has amazing lyrics and melodies for days, not to mention she's fast and very easy to work with. Definitely looking forward to working together again!
Candy is one of my favorites to collab with. Her voice is amazing and her pen is sick ! Will def always collab with her !
Velvet vocals and a golden pen! Candy has the unique ability to take any idea you give her to the next level.
This woman is the TRUTH! I LOVE songwriting with her. She is extremely easy to collaborate with and GENIUS on the microphone. True artist and songwriter, true talent, killer voice and insanely professional/on top other game. Love her!
Candy is an outside-the-box creator that can really bridge the gap between what seems familiar to the listener and what has that extra flare. Working with her is always a pleasure. She has a happy disposition and works her a** off! Can't wait to get in the studio with her again :)
Candy Shields writes music with passion and truth! Her lyrics are contagious; her sound is inspiring; and her raw talent will blow you away!
I- FEEL-GOOD!! Aaaoooowwwwww ABOUT CANDYYYYYYY!! The most talented young lady I've ever worked with. EVER! Anytime I need a song/ chorus/ bridge/hook vocal done for those EXTRA IMPORTANT Traccs! NEEDED her for a Cinemax project "Topless Prophet" for title tracc. INSTANT TURNAROUND!!! QUALITY, FUN, EXCITING, VERY MUCH ABOUT HER BUSINESS!!
Talk about quality songwriting! Candace just has a gift that is unmatched. I always appreciate music that makes you feel something, and feel it deeply. She never fails to deliver that. She is such an important part of this generation of songwriting. Glad she's here.
Candy is the best of the best. She KNOWS how to make a hit record! Her ear is impeccable. Her lyrics are heartfelt. And her production skills are top notch.
You won't meet a more talented and great person in this business. You better try to work with her quick because her price is about to go way up!
What makes Candy so great is that she is able to breathe so much life into ANY concept! Its very rare to see someone this versatile. I continuously refer artists of all genres because her range is incredible! Her easy going nature and ear for detail bring out the best in artists and the work reflects it! Candy is the 1st and LAST stop!
As a music executive, I had the pleasure of working with many talented individuals, but no one quite like Ms. Shields. We could literally have a conversation about something and a good to great song about it 15 minutes later. There aren't many words to fully capture the magnitude of her talent so pay up now bc I'm sure these rates won't apply long.
I've never met such a dedicated, multi-talented songwriter like Candy. She's fast, she's intuitive and the final product sounds so professional, I was able to get placement on radio before taking the song to mastering. Candy also teaches singers vocally how to deliver notes by teaching techniques. She's amazing! One STOP SHOP
Working with Candy literally changed my music career life. Both songs that she wrote, vocal produced and arranged helped land me a leading role on TV Ones R&B Divas LA show as both songs were played on the radio on the east coast. Having them in rotation garnered the attention of the producers at TV one, they LOVED my music!
Interview with Candy Shields
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It varies. No two songs have come about exactly the same. I tend to work faster and far more comfortable recording my own vocals.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I use Protools with a Neumann Microphone and Duet
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm inspired by any and everyone who's been able to get another person to stop and look/listen. For me, those people include Michael Jackson, Dolly Parton, Diane Warren, Carole King, and many others, not to exclude current radio artists and local "soon-to-be-major" artists.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most commonly, I am writing, and demoing pop, R&B, and rhythmic songs for, and/or with, my clients, some of which are signed/unsigned alike. Because I have my own studio and recording capability, I occasionally work in other capacities (I.e., vocal comps, light mixes, vocal recording and vocal arrangement/production).
