Candice Alley Returns

Candice Alley has the honour of releasing the first new Australian pop single of 2007. Candice is probably best remembered for the song "Falling", which was a massive Australian hit in 2003. For a while there Candice was hailed as the next big thing until her follow-up single, "Dream The Day Away", and her debut album, "Colourblind", both flopped miserably. Candice was abruptly dropped by her record company and completely fell off the pop radar - until now.

"Before You Go" follows the "Falling" blue print very closely; the only change to Candice's sound is an ever so slight move towards lite-pop/rock and a new glamorous image. Candice looks amazing but I'm still not taken with her as an artist. She makes pleasant music but it is a little too sedate for my liking. However, it is nice to have her back. As far as dull singer-songwriters go, Candice is entirely bearable! The "Before You Go" CD single also offers a wonderfully trashy remix, which I have uploaded for your listening pleasure. I've also included Candice's previous singles, "Falling" and "Dream The Day Away".

If you like what you hear, help keep Candice in fake eye-lashes by purchasing her single from Sanity. Hopefully, a new album will follow in the near future.

I thought we were the only people to remember Candice Alley!

Did you know she's Grant Hackett's fiancee? And the video for Falling is hilarious, all the baths! So many baths!

And then her manager sued her for false representation because she was called Candice Giacarelli on one contract and Candice Alley on another! Fun for all the family!

I bet they do it on top of the "Grant Hackett Vegetable Juicer"!

Sydney, Australia. 1995. A group of men arrive at work. 'why are you late?' asked the boss...

'oh, we had to go 'up' Candice Alley and it was busy' BOOM BOOM!

Hey she was never dropped by her label she left them because they were so not helpful they never gave her album any publicity what so ever no one even knew she had an album out there I reckon she was smart to leave them...
