Carly's T-Shirt Mishap?

Carly's got "All The Will In The World"


I got a lot of slack from our in-house management team for showing up wearing this Blondie “Call Me” A-Shirt to our promo photo shoot. Once again we were accused of “promoting” an outside artists brand. Ratts-ola!

Hoyt was getting pretty good too at sporting some pretty awesome vintage tee’s in our promotional videos and photos. He used to wear The Cars, The Cure and Joan Jett. Well now it was my turn to bring shame to the Candy Apple Blue camp. A girl just want’s to have fun? Okay, admitting, I guess I should have known better but when I saw this old Blondie A-shirt hanging in my closet with it’s screaming fuchsia color I just couldn’t resist it!

So am I promoting Candy Apple Blue, Blondie’s Debbie Harry "Call Me" song or pink fuchsia? Who knows and who really cares? I think that it's a pretty good pic if I do say so myself.

But on a serious note, at this early stage of our career, it doesn’t make much sense to wear another bands brand or logo on our bodies. In my minds eye, I thought that if Britney could wear a Madonna tee then I should be able to wear a Blondie one. It's funny how I'm legend in my own mind. Meanwhile in reality, I couldn't even get arrested!

The truth is that our management team is right and I’m very grateful for their input, guidance and feedback. Special “Thank you” to Alexander Storm Management and MK Kim for setting us on the right path!

On a funny note, I decided that I'd show them and I just took my shirt off! Photo below.

Big love, Carly Emerick

My revenge was to take my Blondie T-Shirt off!

All The Will In The World


Candy Apple Blue


All The Will In The World by CandyAppleBlue


"Catchy & melodic, heart felt lyrics and great vocal deliveries! "

Never missing a beat, we have released our second single this month! It is a wonderful little bubble gum pop record that we are so proud of!

We had very little time to come up for air in the month of May. We are excited to announce just how well our new single, "All The Will In The World", has been received. Some saying "it's our best production work yet", "sounds very 80's like i adore, great job!", "new old school 80's that's new again but still sounds old school, how confusing in short... awesome sauce", "it's just awesome!", "real catchy tune", "I just can't help smiling at the lead melody", "nice and poppy great production" and so many more.

We are very thankful that, in only it's third day of release, the purchase link has had over 80 people share it & hit the "like" button on facebook. Purchase Link

We wrote this new synthpop song from a very selfish place. Obviously throwing out current day music production trends and going back to, where in our minds, all the good music came from... yes the 1980s!

So far... It's been compared to some early Madonna records like "Think Of Me", Regina 's "Baby Love" and even Alisha 's "Baby Talk". Someone even told us it has a slight Missing Persons "Right Now" sound quality to it. All HUGE compliments to us.

So we will be filming yet another classic "no budget" music video for this one too. We have a lot of great ideas for it. Now let's just see if we can execute them on film. More news on the video to soon follow.

As always thanks for being so supportive of our music and our little band project.

A million smiles, Carly

PS. We would like to send a huge shout out to MK iMagery for his brilliant & vibrant single cover artwork!
