Album Notes
A physician by day and a soul singer by night, Bellamy took up singing as a hobby 10 years ago, paying dues in cover bands, musical theater (her role in an R&B version of “Porgy & Bess” impressed the New York Times), and with a one-woman show where she told stories of her life in between tunes.
Bellamy’s path led to Ruth Carter (composer for Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robert Palmer, and John Mayall), bass playing legend Jimi Calhoun (player with Dr. John, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Wilson Pickett, Sly Stone) and Jake Langley (Roberta Flack, Willie Nelson, k.d. lang), who mentored her, and became her co-writers. Her most recent full length album, In My Lane, was critically acclaimed.

Music Review -In My Lane, Soul Tracks.
“Varied and intriguing, and one of the early winners of 2013. Highly Recommended.”

In My Lane, This Is Book’s Music.
In My Lane is an album by an artist who not only understands the path she has taken, but also knows of the interesting detours and off-ramps that she has the option of going towards, under her own rules.

Music Review- In My Lane, Scrink in Music.
You’re going to feel good listening to her music. Truly.

Music Review- In My Lane, Grungecake.
Delving into the submissions pile from record labels, a month ago, we listened to Candace Bellamy and we’re impressed! Considerably influenced by The Temptations, Roberta Flack and Aretha Franklin, Bellamy brings it on “In My Lane”.

Music Review – In My Lane, Austin Chronicle.
In My Lane…. finds the Tennessee native leaving no vocal stone unturned. Here’s one singer who shouldn’t have to stick to her day job.

Music Review – In My Lane, Daily News Pittsburgh.
Austin, Texas-based newcomer Candace Bellamy puts the “blues” in rhythm & blues on stellar debut “In My Lane.”

Music Review – Soul Bag, France
Cette belle femme est médecin le jour à Austin, Texas, et chanteuse le soir dans les clubs locaux. Après un premier EP paru en
2011, elle propose ce premier album visiblement réalisé sans le soutien d’un “vrai” label. Elle bénéficie pourtant de moyens honorables pour une production signée Ruth Carter et Jake Langley. La première est une songwriter respectée dont les textes ont été repris par Stevie Ray Vaughan et même… Vanessa Paradis. Le second est un guitariste tout aussi estimé et qui s’illustre largement ici, souvent avec bonheur (bonne partie de slide dans Johnny). Candace Bellamy fait preuve d’un joli tempérament, accrocheuse dans les pièces mid tempo, gentiment funky (Put down your foot, Sweet sweet soul), sophistiquée et sensible dans les titres jazzy (Like honey, Walk away), mais c’est dans I don’t know et EXpect qu’elle donne toute sa mesure de soul sister. Dommage que quelques titres soient moins marquants et que les 39 minutes de l’album nous laissent sur notre faim. En laissant espérer un prolongement prochain.
Translation-This beautiful young woman is a physician by day in Austin Texas, and a singer in local clubs by night.
After a first EP released in 2011, she proposes this first album obviously carried out without the support of a “true” label.
However, she have the benefit of respectable resources for a production signed by Ruth Carter and Jake Langley. The former is a respected song writer whose lyrics have been covered by Stevie Ray Vaughan and even…. Vanessa Paradis. The latter is an equally respected guitar player who often distinguish himself brilliantly here (Good piece of slide guitar on Johnny).
Candace Bellamy shows a nice temperament, catchy in the mid-tempo pieces, gently funky (Put down the foot, Sweet sweet soul), sophisticated and sensitive in the jazzy tracks (Like honey, Walk away). But it is in I don’t know and Expect that she gives her full potential of “ Soul sister”.
It’s a pity that some tracks are less striking and that the 39 min of the album leave us unsatisfied. Raising hope for an upcoming continuation.

Music Review – In My Lane, The Horn, Austin.
Candace Bellamy…..has a new record and it’s fiery and rich.

Music Review – In My Lane, Austin Monthly.
The deeply funky guitar riff that kicks off In My Lane’s lead track, “Put Down The Foot” gives you a pretty good taste of what’s to come. But there’s more to this debut album than tasty soul. Bellamy really shines on jazzy blues numbers, “Like Honey” and “Walk Away.”
