Kevin Martin of Candlebox (Video Interview)


“The little band from Seattle that could, because no one wanted us to…”

From Release: After a stellar 3 decade career, Seattle rockers, Candlebox are calling it a day and will finally visit Australia for the first and last ever time this January.

Emerging from Seattle’s mid-’90s grunge scene, Candlebox made a lasting impact on the rock music landscape with their deeply meaningful lyrics and catchy hooks. Their 1993 self-titled debut album sold over 4 million copies worldwide and produced the iconic hits “Far Behind,” “You,” and “Cover Me” – all three of which have a combine 200 million streams on Spotify! Their second album, ’95’s “Lucy,” solidified their position in the alternative rock scene and they have earned a rock solid reputation for their consistently powerful live performances that have cemented their place among Seattle’s elite rock bands.

We chatted to Kevin from Candlebox about their upcoming first and last Australian tour, the bands latest album, what the future holds, and so much more…
