Part fantasy, part weaver of magic, part willow the wisp: singer and song writer Candice Night releases her debut solo single, "Call It Love". The single is the first taste of Night's first solo adult contemporary album, "Reflections", set for release on September 27. "Call It Love" is now available for purchase on iTunes.
Commenting on "Call It Love", Night states, "So many people are so afraid of the word 'love.' It's
all-consuming, life-changing and can leave you so open and vulnerable
that saying 'I love you' for the first time can be a scary moment. We
hide behind so many other words to describe the emotion: fate, a dream,
luck that we met the right one... but once you give in and surrender to
the truth of being in love, there is a comfort and a warmth of
completion that doesn't come until you give yourself fully to that
incredible feeling of being in love. And there is nothing else like it."
Night was born and raised on Long Island, New York, and is often dubbed "one
of the most beautiful women in the world" by the international media.
She is frequently identified as a mix of Karen Carpenter's voice and a young Stevie Nicks, for her flowing skirts, but her ethereal voice and lyrics are all her own. As a frontwoman for the band BLACKMORE'S NIGHT, she also plays seven medieval instruments on stage, lending to the excitement and mysticism of the music of her group.
Night sang background for DEEP PURPLE in 1993; and on RITCHIE BLACKMORE'S RAINBOW CD "Stranger In Us All", she co-wrote four songs. She received a gold record in Japan for her co-writing efforts and one of her songs, "Black Masquerade", was chosen as "Best Song Of The Year" in 1995. Her song "Ariel" won accolades in Europe and charted at #2, as well as being the official German soccer song, and "Black Masquerade" was #1 in Japan.
Night is the lead singer and writes all the lyrics for the songs for her current group BLACKMORE'S NIGHT. Their first album, "Shadow Of The Moon", earned Night a second gold record in 1997. Since then, she has been
awarded gold records and other many international awards for her writing and performances in BLACKMORE'S NIGHT. In addition, Night has appeared on a PBS special. The most recent BLACKMORE'S NIGHT album, "Autumn Sky", entered the Billboard New Age chart at No. 1. Many celebrities have gathered to see Night perform live in concert, including Sarah Brightman, Cuba Gooding Jr. and many others.
Night is now releasing her first solo project, "Reflections", which is an adult contemporary album that showcases a different side to her extraordinary talent and voice. "Reflections" is emanated from Night's personal experiences as a woman, devoted mother and musician.
