Tonysha Nelson and Patavian Lewis are better recognized as Kandy Apple Redd. They’re multi-dimensional international performers who are gaining fans across the globe, in fact, in the past eighteen months, KAR has performed more than two hundred concerts in over seventeen countries as part of P-Funk under the direction of their legendary Grandfather, George Clinton. Kandy Apple Redd’s international flair comes naturally. Tonysha was born and raised for a time north of the border in Scarborough, a suburb of Toronto and spent her formative and teen years in the DC/Maryland area. Patavian was born in Los Angeles and spent her youth on the family farm in Brooklyn, MI. Spending summers together on the farm, with Tonysha and eventually moving to Maryland, they solidified their bond as sisters living a fairly typical childhood. In fact, it wasn’t until later in life did they truly understand the cultural significance of their legendary clan while traveling the world and seeing the fans clamoring for more.

Parliament’s First Album in Almost 40 years is Titanic and Weird

“This week saw the surprise release of Medicaid Fraud Dogg, George Clinton’s first new album in 38 years under the Parliament banner. And it’s a titanic, 100-minute record: dense, political, and vastly eclectic, drawing plenty of inspiration from modern artists along with the full spectrum of the group’s own legendary sound. Surprisingly, it’s Psychotropic, one of the album’s sparest, slowest jams, that’s grabbing me most right now. That might be because of my bias for early Funkadelic, which the song channels through the arpeggios and emotive guitar solos backing up its intimate female vocals from Tonysha Nelson and Patavian Lewis who happen to be the granddaughters of George Clinton. It doesn’t come close to approaching the cosmic majesty of Maggot Brain, but it builds something new and bewitching from those same vibes. (Matt Gerardi, The Onion)
