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!

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!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
