"It's not a race, just move at your own pace..you're gonna win."
- from Hit Single on Deep Space, Win
Fall 2021 saw Candiace release her debut studio album “Deep Space,” which debuted at #24 in the top 25 current R&B Albums Chart while garnering praise from several industry titans, including Toni Braxton, Anita Baker and Nicki Minaj. The newly selected member of the Recording Academy’s class of 2022 also embarks on a multi-city tour this fall.
As an entrepreneur, she is the founder and CEO of Candiace Dillard Pageant Consulting, co-founder of Prima Hair Collection by Candiace Dillard, and co-owner of Chateau Salon Suites. In 2009, she also founded an organization called My Sister’s Keeper, a mentorship and women’s empowerment organization designed to give young girls the opportunity to interact with women in their communities. Candiace is married to her soulmate, restaurateur Chris Bassett, whom she met while they were both working at a restaurant in downtown Washington, D.C. They were friends for several years before the courtship blossomed into undeniable love — Chris proposed to her with a surprise engagement and now the couple is happily married. In addition to running her numerous businesses, Candiace recently received an MBA as a 2022 graduate of Howard University.
