Candice Night Releases Solo Album

Blackmore's Night frontwoman Candice Night has released her debut solo album, Reflections.

"I am always getting new ideas," says Candice Night. "When I had my two babies, I thought it would be difficult finding the time, but my children are so inspirational to me that the lyrics and music continuously flow. I am constantly inspired by nature, the magic and beauty of things that are around us all the time but many don't even see."

The idea of making a solo album was first encouraged by her husband, Blackmore's Night co-founder Ritchie Blackmore. "I had so many lyrics, so many ideas backing up," Night recently told Newsday, "and I came to Ritchie and said, 'I need more music. Give me more music. I want to put these to songs.' And he just looked me and said, 'Come up with the music yourself because I'm kind of busy with what I'm doing.' And I had never thought of that before. I thought, 'Maybe I should do that.'"

Ritchie Blackmore was uninvolved in Reflections, giving Candice Night the space to indulge in her own creativity. However, her husband will always be an inspiration to her. "He has taught me so much," she explains.
