Stepping up to the mic this time is Pittsburgh's own Barry Brayleo whom Carly had met in a karaoke bar after attending a Cher concert earlier this year. "He was just a really nice guy who I could tell really enjoyed singing. Hoyt and I love writing songs so I thought that he'd be a good match for us." Carly (half of Candy Apple Blue) said.

Here are the results of that chance encounter.

Whispers in the Wind (ft. Espen Kraft)


▶ Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/0HccLEC51DdALS8NpBj88u

Whispers in the Wind is the new single taken from the forthcoming Candy Apple Blue album, Second Sight. The composition addresses drug addiction, regret, rumors, and self-realization. The lyric video pays homage to famous celebrities who died from a drug overdose. These talented people had a very real problem with substance abuse which ultimately ended their lives too soon. Its melancholy message is a tragic cautionary tale delivered with a retro 1980s dance beat. Its musical roots are inspired by the early 80s new wave synth-pop bands of the era. The song features a smooth, cool, and haunting vocal performance by Norway's Espen Kraft.

Words & Music by Carly Emerick and Hoyt Emerick 

Verse 1: 
I saw you dancing on the edge 
I tried to reach you as a friend 
You didn't want to hear it then 
I was eager to help, but you pushed me away once again. 

Lead In: 
But where has your soul gone tonight? 
They want to know why you took your own life 

Chorus: 
I hear whispers in the wind 
Your love has made a fool of me 
I gave in so easily 
Whispers in the wind 
Please tell me they're wrong 
the whispers in the wind 

Verse 2: 
People are saying nasty things 
Pointing their fingers, casting blame 
I tried to wake up from this dream 
but the heartache is real and I'm coming apart at the seams 

Lead In 2: 
And I'm waiting for an epiphany tonight 
You were a dying flower in need of sunlight 

Chorus: 
I hear whispers in the wind (people are talking) 
Your love has made a fool of me 
Took all I had so selfishly 
Whispers in the wind 
Please tell me they're wrong 
the whispers in the wind 

Lead In 3: 
I'm waiting for an epiphany tonight 
You were a dying flower 

Chorus: 
I hear whispers in the wind (people are talking) 
Your love has made a fool of me 

You lived your life so recklessly 
Whispers in the wind 
Please tell they're wrong (wrong) 
the whispers in the wind 

Whispers in the wind (whispers in the wind) 
Your love has made a fool of me 
I gave in so easily 
Whispers in the wind 
Please tell me they're wrong 
the whispers in the wind 

Ad-lib: 
Whispers in the wind I hear whispers in the wind 
I hear whispers in the wind, in the wind

Candy Apple Blue - It Happens All the Time (ft. Espen Kraft)


Listen on Spotify
Buy on iTunes / Listen on Apple Music

It Happens All the Time is the first single taken from the forthcoming Candy Apple Blue album, Second Sight. The song features a smooth, cool, and haunting lead vocal performance by Norway's Espen Kraft. Its musical roots are planted firmly in the mid-1980s. The song is a sophisticated slice of uptown high-quality synth-pop inspired by the electronic/new wave bands of the era. The music videos focus is on an eccentric fortune-teller who uses his powers of prophecy to put Candy Apple Blue under his spell and to help them gain insight into their lives. He uses tarot cards, the Magic 8 Ball, Louisiana Voodoo (Vodou), and astrology to help the band solve their problems. The character role of the medium in touch with the spirit world is deliciously played by Antonio Licon.
