music…

“She’s the package deal with the entrepreneurial mind of Dolly Parton, pushing the envelope with tongue in cheek lyrics like Loretta Lynn. With a fresh pop delivery, Candy Fernaux is a storytelling diva with a sweet soulful sound from country and western days gone by.”

~ Country Radio

writing…

My fascination with words and rhymes began as a young girl, merely to escape far away from hardship on our family farm. It wasn’t until after college that I started crafting songs, yet I didn’t consider myself a real songwriter, always writing solo with no formal “training.” Ha.  However, one morning, I read an article about a known songwriter in Nashville that intrigued me. She said she didn’t go to a studio to write songs; she’d have a hook hit her while baking cookies, then stop and write. Well, I normally get hooks like, Gone Fishin’, (pardon the pun) while sunning my buns on Bondi Beach in Sydney. And then, it hit me, maybe I am a songwriter! I knew I wanted to hone my writing skills, so on a whim, I booked a plane ticket to the east coast to collaborate with a group of songwriters I’d never met before…

art…

My very first canvas was an old Beltone guitar my aunt dug out of her basement and asked me if I wanted it. When a friend invited me to take an art class she was teaching, I grabbed that basement treasure,  painted it, then decoupaged old black and white photos of Elvis all over it. I’ve been HOOKED on acrylic and mixed media ever since! I get almost as excited about painting as I do writing music. Call it irony, coincidence or destiny… but my song titles keep coming to life on canvas…
