Candace Campana Interview by Christian Lamitschka for Country Music News International Magazine & Radio Show

Lamitschka: Do you write the songs yourself? If not, how do you go about finding the songs for your CD?

Answer: Yes I do! I write my own songs from start to finish, without the help or aid of others. I am not against co-writing, and would love to dabble into it, but for the songs that I have written about real life experiences that I have seen or felt, no one knows those emotions better than me, being I was there firsthand. I know where I want the story to go, because I lived the story, and want to make it as relatable to the public as possible in my own way!

Lamitschka: Do you have any interesting stories about how fans have been affected by your music?
Answer: Yes I do, and it’s the reason why I continue to write and record, because I want to help people through my stories. The song I released titled “Pink Ink,” is a story about a mother battling breast cancer, and her daughter being there for her, and showing her strength can be found in the smallest of ways. She gets a tattoo of a ribbon, with her mother’s name next to it, begging her to stay strong and keep fighting. I can’t tell you how many people have reached out to me saying that song hit them so hard and truly connected with their own stories. They say it made them cry and gave them courage to continue, and some have even gotten the tattoo!

Lamitschka: What's unique about you that will differentiate you from other artists?

Answer: I like to just be me, which is an earthy hippy child thing that loves rock and roll and has no boundaries when it comes to music. My hair is always a crazy neon color, my teeth are the teeth I was born with and are not perfect and I do not plan to “fix them,” I hardly wear makeup and I’m no good at doing my own hair, I just love to perform and to write and inspire and want to continue healing the world.

Lamitschka: What moments in your career stand out in your memory as highlights and achievements which you are proud of?

Answer: This one’s actually kind of funny. I love Flea Markets, I am basically the Queen of the Dirt Ball malls! There is one in Ohio Called Rogers Flea market and it’s my favorite! I go every Friday, and then found out they are making a show out of it called Flea Market Fanatics! Imagine my excitement! So I thought Okay I HAVE to stand out at this audition to be on this show, so I wrote a jingle about the Flea Market as my audition! Well, they loved it so much they recorded me playing it and are using it on the show I am THRILLED!!!!!

Lamitschka: Who is your biggest critic, yourself or others?

Answer: Definitely myself. I have worked so hard on stage before that I physically couldn’t turn my head after for 2 days, but I still thought I could have given more energy to make it better./

Lamitschka: When you get time off, how do you like to relax?

Answer: I love being with my animals, and I have many! I love showing and being with my pony (whom I rescued when he was 3 years old and he just turned 12)!! Sunny boy is my everything and he teaches me every day to be brave and continue moving forward, for that’s what he had to do the first 3 years of his life. He fought to live when he had nothing and he turned out to be the happiest, dirtiest, funniest horse at our stable. I also have a black cat named Binx who literally waits by the door to see me when I get home, and a chow chow mix from the Pound, Prince Harley. They are my loves, and the love the give me is more than I can handle!!

Lamitschka: What hopes and desires do you have?

Answer: I aspire to be the idol I have always looked up to. To be the one people look up to, want to meet, want to see perform, save up for the tickets to concerts, stalk their tour schedule in hopes they are coming close, to have people feel lyrics Like I do. I want to be on the level of my idols, so they no longer feel like idols, but friends.

Lamitschka: Is there any place you haven't played that you would like to?
Answer: I actually aspire to go overseas! I would love to perform in the Netherlands, Sweden, all over! I want to connect on a worldwide basis.
Lamitschka: Many music fans today get their information about artists online. Do you have your own website and what will fans find there?

Answer: Yes I have YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, feel free to message me!

Lamitschka: What's the best compliment a fan has ever given you?

Answer: That I stand out for being myself, or sang a song the way it should be sung! I love to hear it!
