“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.”

writing

Attempting an escape to a far far away land from our family farm, I started writing poetry as a kid. I was a girlie girl. Milking cows and irrigating corn was the not girlie.  My Gramp gave me a guitar when I was 12, showed me the basic chords and taught me to play by ear. It wasn’t until after college that I started crafting songs. Writing had been emotional outlet for me my whole life, but I didn’t consider myself a “real” songwriter. Then one morning, drinking peppermint tea in my kitchen in Houston, I read an article about a songwriter in Nashville. She didn’t go to a formal studio to write songs with a group of professional writers. She’d be baking cookies, have a hook come to her then she’d write. I thought to myself, -I’m not getting hooks baking cookies, but I’ve got hooks hitting me right and left in this single diva life I’m living! Maybe I am a songwriter…

My very first canvas was an old busted guitar my aunt dug out of the basement and asked me if I could use it for anything. A songwriting friend of mine had invited me to take an art class she was teaching and I grabbed that old guitar and my wood glue, painted it, then decoupaged old black and white photos of Elvis all over it. I’ve been HOOKED ever since!  I love painting almost as much as I love writing music and call it irony, coincidence or fate… but  my song titles keep coming to life on canvas. I love abstract acrylic, lots of bold color, texture, and mixed media. Check out my paintings, I have originals and prints for sale in my Candy Country Art Store!
