Songs can present themselves anywhere from conversation to contemplation in every aspect of experience one might encounter on any given day. Recognizing such moments as inspiration and the ammunition to write something poignant and cohesive is half the battle.  Steve Candlen writes simple yet vulnerable melodies about the experiences of life, love, and perspective in the 21st century. “I enjoy writing from a title that hands me a topic allowing me to color in the blanks. Other than that I’m just an average minded goofball.” Candlen played drums for most of his life in and around his hometown of Albany, NY – touring nationally with Felix Caveliere’s Rascals (The Young Rascals) 88′ through 96′, presently with Columbia recording artist Franklin Micare and Irish folk artist Kevin Mckrell.  In 2003 Candlen decided to start performing solo (guitar/vocal). He was the winner of the 2005 “Music For Miracles” Songwriting Contest with the title ” All Over The World”, was voted Metroland Magazine’s “Best Male Vocalist 2006”, and “Best Drummer 2007”. 

From sweet and soulful to full on jam Matt Mirabile has it covered. Deeply rooted in Blues, Soul, R&B, and Funk, he began performing at age twelve and quickly went from a being a young novelty player to being a serious threat on the guitar. With nearly two decades of professional playing experience Mirabile’s musical journey has brought him to many parts of the US and even Europe. He has shared the stage with blues greats such as, Buddy Guy, James Cotton, Lurrie Bell and Kenny Neal. Mirabile plays with a tone and feeling well beyond his years and keeps his audience wanting more.
