Active in the music business since 2007, Kandia have always worked and invested alone. Created from scratch & based on the drive and creative minds of André and Nya Cruz, they have released two discographic works that speak for themselves: the "Light" EP (2008) and the 2010 album "Inward Beauty | Outward Reflection". In 2012 their third album started to get written together with friend and producer Daniel Cardoso (Anathema) mind-set on a unique and avant-garde sound. As this goal was achiev...

Active in the music business since 2007, Kandia have always worked and invested alone. Created from scratch & based on the drive and creative minds of André and Nya Cruz, they have released two discographic works that speak for themselves: the "Light" EP (2008) and the 2010 album "Inward Beauty | Outward Reflection".

In 2012 their third album started to get written together with friend and producer Daniel Cardoso (Anathema) mind-set on a unique and avant-garde sound.

As this goal was achieved, it is now time to work and get this new sound and image to the fans.

Guided by the desire of always being one step ahead when it comes to production and image, the concept of their first single, "Scars" is created, which will be, as usual, directed by the crafty hands of Ricardo Teixeira.

But this video is just the first step. The single and the album must be available to the masses and concerts to promote it must happen both in Portugal and abroad.

Entitled "All is gone" and with an enlightened, simple and straightforward image, Kandia’s third album consists of 12 electrifying songs.

Help KANDIA give birth to this work & show the World that Portugal has just a little something more to show for.
Make your contribution and get fantastic rewards in return, some of it exclusive and you will NOT get it anywhere else other than here.
This is a project made by the hands, minds and hearts of three dedicated musicians that live & breathe music and have been struggling to get their music across.


About the author

Nya Cruz: Date of Birth: May 13, 1982

Began dancing at the age of 8, an art that  she would later leave to join a theater group.

At 18 she discovers her true passion: singing. Something that allows her to combine dance, theater & writing in a single performance.

Love Lies Eternal: Vocalist - 2000-2004

Love Lies Eternal begins in 2000 with their first demo "ACT 1", later on a single entitled "Paintings" is released and draws the attention of the Portuguese record label Ethereal Sound Works that signs and publishes the first and only work "Never Ends". The band eventually split up even before the release.

Y?: Vocalist - 2004-2007

Y? is born in 2004 from the ashes of LLE. With a more raw and aggressive sound, they count Nya as a vocalist until 2007, when they win the contest SUPER BOCK PRELOAD which allows them to walk on the same stage that METALLICA  at SBSR Festival that year.

Kandia: Vocalist - 2007 - 2012 ...

Creates the project with André Cruz from scratch, assuming the duo as the only official members of the project. Kandia count  concerts in Spain and Latvia, and shared the stage with Guano Apes and Within Temptation and Danny Cavanagh (Anathema)

André Cruz: Founder of Kandia and composer, André was born August 6, 1981. Guitarist since his teenage years the peak of garage bands, took part in projects like "Innocence" and "Broken Hourglass", as well as his solo project "Backlit", and would eventually join Nya in Y? in 2006.

Responsible for the graphic work of KANDIA, all albums and web platforms have his signature. With experience in Design since 1999, he is guided by the constant search for something innovative and suprising to the consumer.

Daniel Cardoso: For his extensive CV, we would ask that you please visit  Daniel’s page on Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Cardoso
