Kevin Martin of Candlebox

cbox1When frontman Kevin Martin received the call letting him know that Rhino Records was releasing a Candlebox Greatest Hits album, it set the wheels in motion.  After speaking to the rest of the original line-up they decided to make the most of the opportunity and hit the road in support of it.  With six million records sold worldwide over their career, it had been many years since Candlebox had even existed in any way, shape, or form.  What would the reaction be?

From the moment they hit the stage Kevin described it as riding a bike.  When music is your livelihood, it’s not hard to pick right up where you left off.  While each member had pursued other musical endeavors over the years, playing as Candlebox had to feel like coming home to each of them.  Could they really do it all again?  With a successful tour under their belt and currently in the middle of another one, the answer is a big, loud YES!  Fans are showing up en masse to relive the songs that defined Candlebox as one of the stand out artists of 90s and the Candlebox of today doesn’t disappoint – serving up all the hits on a delicious musical platter.  With their new songs intertwined with old songs, there’s not a a soft spot in the set.  The songs are as relevant today as they were they day they were written and there’s no place better to see living proof of that than on stage night after night.

Lead singer Kevin Martin, who never stopped making music, sat down with TWRY to discuss the Candlebox of old and new as well as what the future holds for this project.
