I'm Candy Coburn

Here's a brief overview of this project. See below for a "full 411" about the why and who and how! 

A LOT has transpired for me personally, privately and musically over the past few years.  It brought me to my knees! I had to get real, I found "my true sound--my message--my jam!"

This new CD, THE GOOD LIFE, sings right from the heart of my STORY, to share the message of hope, of support for do-overs and the grace of second chances! It is all about the power of LOVE in the context of COMMUNITY in our lives.

The expanded story...... 

 I am SO grateful you took the time out of your busy day to hear about my exciting new adventure into my first full studio album in 4 year! I've been a singer/songwriter/touring artist for the past decade. I have been a small business owner running Candy Productions thru that time with employees, handling my own publishing, booking, promotion, and record making as well. I LOVE MY JOB! It has taken me to some of the biggest stages in the country playing with some major acts on the road.. blah, blah, blah... (for more blah, blah blah about what I have done, check out the Bio page at www.CandyCoburn.com/bio  :)

HERE is what I KNOW I am supposed to do NEXT...

So WHY?... am I taking a leap of enormous faith to do a studio album again, with a totally different purpose for this new season of my life and musical journey? What many of you who have known me might not know.....

I have had a major DO-Over in my life in the past 2 years. My life is truly unrecognizable. After struggling with an addiction, getting sober, focusing on my family, and finding my way back to a place God had intended me to be the entire time... I am living, breathing, proof that miracles DO happen! My die hard fans are calling this new music "MY Sound." I think this "sound" is more about feeling like I am really exactly where I am supposed to be. These are the songs poured out of my "beautiful mess." God laid it on my heart as a part of my new mission and purpose to get these "real", soul rockin' songs out there to others who might have had some struggles and those who may still suffer in silence. 

I am here to invite you fellow dreamers and believers of 2nd chances out there to join me on this new frontier! I want YOU to be a part of this community to Share the Love! It is said, sometimes we have to go through FIRE to get to the good stuff! I think this IS the good stuff. THE GOOD LIFE! It's is all about LOVE-- I want to use the gifts God so graciously gave me to GIVE BACK and reach others WITH YOU!

So WHO?--Stellar people so much more talented than myself will be a part of this record. This is so exciting for me to have my "Dream Team" on this project!

Producer--JEFF PLANKENHORN - (Austin, Tx) one of the top singer/songwriter/musicians I know, will not only be playing on my record but I am thrilled he will be producing it with me as well! Check out his amazing music at www.theplank.net or on Facebook-  www.facebook.com/jeffplakenhorn

Engineer(Grammy award winning) - Anton Pukshansky-Austin, TX

Drums-Brannen Temple - Austin, TX

Bass - Yoggie Musgrove - Austin, TX

Keys/Organ - Billy Mason - Austin, TX

Cello - Dirje Childs - Austin, TX

BGV - Courtney Santana (& working on a few other surprise guests!)

Studio - Red Horse Ranch - Austin, TX

---Check all of these amazing people out online!

"THE GOOD LIFE" is full of soul. Add amazing musicians + YOU = a community of music lovers who can reach the lives of others out there to give them Hope and spread some GOOD LIFE!

So HOW?--This album will be recorded in our beautiful ("live music capitol of the world") city of Austin, TX! I have finally found a sound that I think is completely my own. This rockstar group of world-class musicians lined up to contribute their unique talents will make this record completely different than any other I have done in the past. MONEY RAISED WILL...

PRIORITY 1- PAY these seasoned artists/musicians fairly for their time and talents (there are some special guests on this record I can't even believe!  I am a lucky gal to have sweet peeps like this!)

PRIORITY 2 - For Studio Time, Producing, Mixing, Editing, Mastering, registration of songs, etc.

PRIORITY 3 - Production of the album, artwork, photography, Reward fulfillment for the super cool items YOU GET when you pre-buy!

OH YEAH & -- 5% plus credit card fees to KICKSTARTER off Total - (Super Cool how they came up with this idea on how we could all connect to make awesome projects a reality!)

WISHLIST PRIORITIES.... If we exceed our goal (which we very much hope we do) $$ for Promotion of the record to get the message out far and wide airwaves and otherwise, Update resources to provide better platform to serve fans online with videos, live concerts, special private fan events.

Risks and challenges

I NEED YOU:) This campaign only works with your help. If we do not reach our goal, no monies are funded for the project. I BELIEVE!! We will achieve this goal and even surpass it! I am committed to making this record for others to hear the Hope that inspired these songs. I needed these songs at a rough time in my life. Promotion for albums, singles, radio, etc is costly. It would be wonderful to have this grassroots endeavor take this record to its highest potential to reach others. If you pass this along to your friends and family, we can all celebrate seeing independent music continue to thrive!

    "WALK TALL" WALL-
    Make a pledge to honor or celebrate a loved one. THE GOOD LIFE includes a follow-up song to Pink Warrior. It is a fighter song for people going thru hard times no matter what color the ribbon may be or those who just are fighters we love in this life who are still with us or have past who inspire us to WALK TALL!
    THE "WALK TALL" WALL will remain on Candy’s website and will be featured in a video in the future.
    I could see an image of Johnny Cash when I wrote this song, he was wearing every possible ribbon you can imagine for those fighting a fight.
    I believe it’s a Warrior song of Hope!—You can add a name to your pledge of any amount over $10 to have your loved one included on the Wall Page!
