Candy girl...




Candy Dulfer is a Dutch saxophonist who started her artistic career by forming her first group "Funky stuff" at the age of 14 !


It's Madonna who reveals her to the general public when she picks her up for her opening act. We are then in 1987.


Then it's Prince who takes her under his wing and integrates her into his band of musicians. She made her first screen appearances in her music video "Partyman" in 1989.


It was in 1989 that she began to stand on her own when the single "Lily was here" was released. Single which will be a hit across the Old Continent.


She released her first album "Saxuality" a year later in 1990. The album was a huge hit. Notably thanks to the single released a year earlier but also with another title that bears the name of the album.


It took three years and 1993 to see her release the album "Sax-a-Go-Go". Album with less success but success nonetheless. Album which will produce the hit of the name of the album and to a lesser extent "Pick up the pieces".


The albums that will be released subsequently will unfortunately not experience the same enthusiasm from the public and will not produce any major hits.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1989 ... the title of a lifetime. The pretty Candy signs here a 1st HUGE title thanks to Dave Stewart, composer of this soundtrack of the German film 'De Kassière'. She couldn't have asked for a better way to launch her career !



1990 ... la Belle capitalizes on the enormous success of the previous title. Suddenly, new hit in stride and start of the new decade perfectly negotiated



1990 ... of course, quality is still the order of the day, but the Candy phenomenon is already running out of steam. Like a slight lack of inspiration ...



1993 ... nothing for 3 years and a strong comeback in 1993. A winning comeback which allowed her to regain success. Finally !



1993 ... a last notorious success on a luxury cover of the title of 'Average White Band' and dating from 1974. A little easy but effective !



1995 ... small air hole in 1994 and here we are again the following year. Another title of certain quality but unfortunately the mayonnaise no longer takes ...



1996 ... a sumptuous foray into the Intimist domain. But once again, the beautiful Candy is no longer successful. Pity...



1997 ... and what about this one ! A duo which works perfectly and which will offer a last hit to the artist. But only on his native land ...
