Candice Night releases her debut solo single entitled “Call It Love”, via iTunes and this single is the first that comes off her first solo album“Reflections”, due on September 27 .
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.
“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.”

JOHN 5 will again be working with legends Lynyrd Skynyrd for their forthcoming new album. He’s previously worked with the band writing Skynyrd’s 2009 album “God and Guns”.
Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Gary Rossington stated:
“He’s probably one of the best guitar players I’ve ever played with, and I’ve played with a lot of great ones. He just lives with a guitar on him, and he knows that neck like nobody I’ve ever seen.”
