Ponderosa Grove is a band born out of the artistic tapestry of Prescott, Arizona. They can be seen performing as an acoustic trio or in their full 5-piece setup. This collective brings a warm and inviting sound that has been compared to a contemporary Fleetwood Mac or a modern day Queen with hook driven melodies and a fierce stage presence.
The band features a group of musicians that bring a wealth of creativity and diverse influences to its lineup. A songwriter on the Grammy-nominated album "Wild Heart" by Mindi Abair, lead vocalist Devine has opened for and worked with artists from Ringo Starr and Christina Aguilera to Adam Lambert, Michelle Branch, Styx and more, as well as displayed her multi vocal range for television and feature films. Through her company Further West, Candace is the President and founder of the Pure Imagination Music Festival who has featured Ziggy Marley, Lucinda Williams, Los Lobos, Dawes, Talib Kweli, Capital Cities, Allison Russell, Nappy Roots, and many more in 2022 & 2023.
