What do you get when you cross four weirdos with electronic instruments? Ear Candy- that's what! Hailing from Mpls, these ladies aim to get you on the dance floor! With synthesizers and electribes, costumes,and tight-ass choreographed dance routines, each live show is unique. For a taste of their sassafrass synthpop, check out their cd, Chante la Femme.
Ear Candy started as the brain child of Dawn Miller in 1997. After performing the music solo with various back up singers/dancers live for a couple of years, Carol Cunnington stepped up to the plate and became a co-conspirator with Dawn. After performing regularly for some time, they took a year hiatus. In 2004, dancers/back-up singers Sarah and Alyssa joined to spice up the live shows with their spot on choreography! Currently the foursome are rockin' the dance floor and infecting minds with their catchy pop songs.
