Ground Control Touring Welcomes Brooke Candy

Ground Control Touring Welcomes Brooke Candy

Posted 10/02/2023

An undisputed icon of the underground music, fashion, and queer art scenes, Brooke Candy is a sex-positive pop idol whose wide-ranging creative output revels in defiant glamour, embodying both speculative futures and über-romantic nostalgia. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Candy first gained notoriety from her work on Grimes’ 2012 music video “Genesis,” followed quickly by high-profile collaborations with such fellow iconoclasts as Charli XCX, Sia, Diplo, Lizzo, Pussy Riot, Sophie, Mykki Blanco, and countless more.

The multi-faceted, infinitely talented Candy has explored an array of inspired possibilities throughout her career, from styling music videos (including Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts” and David Guetta & Afrojack Ft. Charli XCX & French Montana’s “Dirty Sexy Money”) and teaching performing arts classes at New York University to collaborations with the Brooklyn Museum and Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) and brand partnerships with MAC Cosmetics and Diesel.

Though Candy does give us amazing visuals, her work runs deeper. It also led her to dive deeper into feminism and advocating for sex workers. Candy is not only transparent about her sex-industry past, but also about her previous issues with drugs and mental health, topics she addresses in her first studio album Sexcorcism’s single and video, “Happy.

Now, with a decade of experience under Candy’s belt, she has a newfound zen-like perspective of independence as an artist and is excited to create more music dedicated to her femme/LGBTQ community.
