Drawing influence from a broad range of artists including Tori Amos, Jeff Buckley and more recently Joni Mitchell and Rick Price, Candice McLeod has developed a style that is uniquely her own.

Having spent 2013 living a nomadic life touring the east coast of Australia with her debut single, Whispers, this young Queensland modern folk artist has found a home away from home in the Grampians National Park, Victoria.

During her busy year of café acoustics and songbird blues, Candice McLeod performed alongside some of Australia’s most talented emerging musicians including Daniel Champagne, Christopher Coleman and Shaun Kirk, showcasing her songbook to audiences countrywide with her enchanting stories and endearing stage presence. These shows included performances at a wide variety of venues around Australia, from cafes and restaurants to large outdoor festivals and leading venues such as The Great Northern Hotel (Byron Bay), Lizotte’s (Dee Why), The Pacific Hotel (Yamba), The Republic Bar (Hobart), The Loft (Gold Coast) and The Sol Bar (Maroochydore).

With plans to record her debut EP before the year is out, Candice has dedicated the autumnal months to writing stories from her telltale heart. Alongside Summer, will be Candice and her campervan; returning to the festivals and stages across the country to once again warm the ears of her listeners with this new heart-tugging collection of songs.
