Candy Apple Blue - Band Biography


Candy Apple Blue -  Band Biography
Candy Apple Blue is the indie synthpop band created by the sibling songwriting & music production team of Carly Emerick & Hoyt Emerick. Going full throttle and peddle to the metal for their love of music!
The two members bring something essential to the sound and creativity of the band:
Carly Emerick

Carly Emerick utilizes her passion for vintage synthesizers, old drum machines and MIDI programming then merges them together with a more contemporary approach to recording. She uses Avid Pro Tools as her main digital audio workstation (DAW) set-up. She incorporates her strict pop sensibility when composing. Carly also sings lead vocals on the majority of their songs.
Hoyt Emerick

Hoyt Emerick concentrates on crafting the vocal melodies and focuses on writing the majority of the lyrics. His poetic stance on composing adds something magically original and fresh to the bands sound. Hoyt is also the background vocalist for the band although just recently he's been fronting on a few songs.
Hoyt Emerick & Carly Emerick

Together Hoyt & Carly have created an original sound that easily sets them apart from what most other artists are doing today.
This duo got their musical start composing songs for the NYC based electronic band, The Inertia Case. They draw inspiration from early 1980's new wave acts to current day electronic flavored pop music.
They are from and currently reside in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania USA. ("The City of Bridges" "Home of the Pittsburgh Steelers")
“We love to write songs, Hoyt and I are truly songwriters at heart. We have been writing songs since we were in our early teens.” ~ Carly Emerick
