“Honeymoon for One” Album

About the AlbumLyrics and TracksCredits

Candace Roberts unleashed her fanciful debut album “Honeymoon for One” in 2010. In a cotton-candy world of shimmering girl-group harmonies and clever cabaret … our heroine makes her way through a minefield of tubas, handbags and plentiful pork products.

Candace wrote and demoed these songs out of her bedroom eventually teaming up with beloved mentor/producer Bonnie Hayes. Drawing on cabaret, vaudeville, jazz, pop and rock, “Honeymoon for One” chronicles the artist’s odyssean-like attempts to fill the tank, only to realize … the tank is already full! Desiring everything under the sun from cookies to strangers to pots of gold, she spins out but eventually finds her way back home, only to discover a most unexpected proposal waiting at the end of the rainbow. With lushly-layered vocal harmonies, dreamy guitars, harpsichord and accordion, this album delivers big on whimsy, reverie and abundant theatrics. Do enjoy!
