About Candy Rose
Multi-Award winning unsigned British Artist Candy Rose is an independent Singer/Songwriter based in London, U.K. She writes/co-writes all her material and has many influences, from the Late Great Michael Jackson to Madonna to Nirvana to Alicia Keys and Fall Out Boy to name a few. She is an avid fan of Patrick Stump - so much so, she wrote a song for him - and has been tipped as one of the U.K Artists to watch and keep listening to. She is not restricted in her genre or style of music and her works features something for all.
When the voice of Candy Rose was heard over the airwaves for the first time following the release of her debut single, So You Know in 2009, little was known about her as no public photos had been taken of her at the time, and interviews had only taken place over the radio. Despite the mystique surrounding her, her debut album A Rollercoaster Love created a huge buzz resulting in radio exposure worldwide and rave reviews.
Candy Rose has since revealed her face to the public following a string of successful gigs in and around London, being placed as a finalist in the 6th annual International Acoustic Music Awards, had her songs played in major retail branches and clubs, performing at the Miami Music Festival, becoming a proud Olympics Ambassador for her home city London, having her music used in various movie, dvds and ad projects, as well as photo shoot with Andy Fallon who has worked with the likes of The Killers and Morrissey to name but a few.
She has since completed works with International Artists and producers, had her music featured in an episode of BBClick and the lovely Kate Russell is a fan. She's released a few more EPs and singles including completing works on her EP, London, where 50% of all sales goes towards the homelessness charity; Shelter. Her current release Fair Weather Friends is very relatable and she's green so CDs of her works are very limited indeed.
She is currently working on her next release - which many hope will be the second album, from the lady fondly dubbed "The Queen of Hooks".
