Canadian recording artist and songwriter Candice Sand is helping Silver Star Mountain Resort light up for Christmas this weekend.

Currently on a tour of western Canada to promote the release of her new album, Sand is a guest performer at Silver Star’s light-up celebrations Saturday, Dec. 5.

A recording artist and songwriter originally from Saskatchewan and currently based out of Toronto, Sand is best described as a blend of Natasha Bedingfield and Alicia Keys for her optimistic and sincere lyrics, infectious hooks, and powerful vocals.

A  self-proclaimed, modern-day flower child, Sand’s influences include female vocalists  and songwriters  such as  Keys, Bedingfield, Emeli Sandé, Joss Stone, and Nikka Costa.

Sand’s debut album, Against Concrete Walls, was produced by Grammy/Juno nominated Kuya Productions Inc. (known for their work with the Juno award winning multi-platinum R&B artist JRDN and fellow Canadian artist Alessia Cara, currently on the charts with  her single Here.)

Sand’s EP features six tracks, written and recorded by Sand and the Kuya Productions team and featuring guest performances by JRDN and Choclair.

Beside’s live music, Silver Star’s light up will feature crafts, games, a mini-sled track, an eco-clown, horse-drawn sleigh rides, Christmas treats and the lighting of tens of thousands of Christmas lights around the village. The event runs from 5 to 8 p.m.
