Candy's River House is a band who has stood the test of time and travel. Jordan Young being the sole original member, he has led this rock trio from coast to coast since 2009. Having played and developed his stylings in middle Tennessee, Candy's is laden with a southern flare, which is very apparent in Jordan's guitar work and lyrics. With songs like "Single-Wide Sally" and "Only Ten I see" right off the bat is a sort of southern sunshine drenched thump rock. They have been lucky enough as a self-managed/produced band to stay very busy on the road with high energy, relentlessly paced shows. Maintaining a schedule of venues in Oklahoma, St. Louis, Texas, Mississippi and Tennessee, all the way to Sacramento, Los Angeles and Colorado. With the release of their new EP, the group is anxiously looking forward to the future, the road and as always, wild live shows.
Those who are looking to satisfy a vintage rock sweet tooth need look no further than Salt Lake City based power trio Candy’s River House. This ’70s rock resurrection leaves little to be desired with their all out, high energy performances. They have shared the stage with the likes of Walter Parks, Jarod James Nichols, Eric McFadden, Royal Bliss and White Lion to name a few. The gruff, dusty throated Jordan Young peels through heavy layers of blazing guitar and mean bass lines from start to finish in a bluesy, soulful rock soup. Fitting for a massive summer festival or a sweaty dive bar, Candy’s River House is a classic melding of every hard rock band leading the way 40 years ago, with pieces of Nazareth, Skynyrd, Cream and Deep Purple coursing through its veins.
Jordan, Chuck and Gabriel are each independent musicians with unique styles and influences. With all three having different tastes in music and art all together, they have always had a large span of genres thrown into their original material. Their sound has been described and as “a soulful, rock soup” and “explosive psychedelic, rock/blues.”
