I pen the songs, deliver a convincing lead vocal demo, and also build out the vocal arrangement in the styling that best suits the mood and feel of the song. I've worked with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Timbaland, Mary J. Blige, Britney Spears and many more.
I've had the pleasure of working either for or alongside the likes of Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Timbaland, Mary J. Blige, Britney Spears, Brandy, Usher, Ciara, Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Danity Kane, The Pussycat Dolls, Mindless Behavior, and Cheryl Cole among others. In addition to writing lyric and melody, as well as recording demo vocals, I have nearly always lent my vocals to the released songs I've written. I absolutely LOVE what I do, and I'd be more than happy to lend my talents to the project you'd like to finish. I am capable of delivering the vocal styles listed above, and others as well.
I have been awarded ASCAP Pop Song of the Year (Timbaland feat. Keri Hilson and D.O.E. 'The Way I Are') and The Dove Award for Urban Recorded Song (Tri-ni-Tee 5:7 'Listen'), and I contributed songs for GRAMMY winning albums by Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, and Mary J. Blige.
My tenure in this industry has aligned me with many stellar talents, many of whom I was fortunate enough to learn from. My hope is to use what I have learned to craft more works that resonate with people and enliven them to live well and dream big.

Simply my favorite female vocalist/songwriter and I've worked with a few. Both vocally, and lyrically, Candice breathes life into a song like no one else can. I will continue to work with her. You should too!
It does not get any better than Candice Nelson. Her talent is undeniable. She can write a memorable record, deliver a stirring vocal, or help an artist capture the perfect performance. In my 20+ years in the music industry, I have been hard pressed to come across anyone as dynamic, pleasant and professional as Candice.
I was a super fan of Candice’s writing and vocal arrangements since “MySpace” days. A few years ago a friend of mine said let me introduce you. I lost my mind. She was everything I could have imagined. The most talented sweetest person you will EVER meet. Always a joy to work with and her music is so authentic so honest. Her pen is amazing!!! One of my top 5 of today.
I've had the opportunity to work with Candice on many records. Honestly, It seems silly to write a review for this writer, her credits and reputation around the industry speaks high volumes. She is one of the very best there is. Candice walks in, writes, records, arranges and there is a hit.
Candice Nelson is PERFECTION. One of the BEST songwriters in the music industry hands down. There are no limitations in her songwriting abilities ranging from Country & Pop to R&B. Her lyrics are Thought Provoking, Witty, Heartbreaking, Sultry, Fun, Lighthearted etc. You name it & she has written about it. Her voice alone is one of the best voices in the industry -Teak Underdue/Hallway Productionz
Candice Nelson- she is by far the worlds greatest writer, vocal arranger and consummate professional. She's the epitome of 1st Class! I have never worked with anyone so well versed in most EVERY genre. She has no limits when it comes to all things creative.
You can't go wrong!
