Nomadic songstress Candice McLeod, originally from south-east Queensland, has her travelling shoes permanently on these days. For the past two years, this young creative soul has lived a gypsy life on the road, with her songbook, guitar and keyboard in hand.
Candice has extensively toured her modern-folk tunes to a variety of audiences, venues and festivals across the east coast and Tasmania, captivating their hearts with her enchanting stories and endearing stage presence. These performances have seen her play alongside some of Australia’s most talented emerging musicians including Daniel Champagne, Christopher Coleman and Shaun Kirk. Candice also shared some road time early in 2015 with one of Canada’s leading singer/songwriters, Scott Cook, for a handful of intimate shows in Victoria.
After recently recording her debut EP, ‘Live In Bruthen’ in Victoria, late March 2015 saw Candice McLeod once again hit the road, kicking off her ‘Nullarbor Nights Tour’. This began in one of her much-loved pit stops: Hall’s Gap, in the heart of the Grampians National Park – a place where this young artist spent 2013 experiencing another side of the music industry, as the live music coordinator and promoter for Livefast Café.
With her ‘Nullarbor Nights Tour’ taking Candice and her campervan up the entire west coast, she is once again feeling at home on the road – returning to the festivals and stages across the country and continuing to warm the ears of her listeners with her growing heart-tugging collection of songs.
