Following the release his debut album Plan A Graham Candy joins Alex Behan in session to play a few songs and tell a few stories.

Graham Candy got a taste for song writing at an early age, and collaborations though the Play It Strange foundation with mentors like Mike Chunn gave him confidence.  But it was on stage, at a bar, during an open mic night that his big break arrived.  A German music executive was in the room, sent a recording he’d taken on his phone back to his company and just like that, Graham was Berlin Bound. 

Three years later with several European collaborations under his belt and Graham Candy has released his debut album in Australia and New Zealand.  Plan A is an unabashed pop record by a young artist who by his own admission is still finding his feet.  “I’m 25 you know, I’m still exploring myself and when you hear Plan A you can kind of tell my feet aren’t quite on the ground yet in terms of my sound.  But I’m comfortable with my first album being explorative.”

Graham Candy  joined Alex Behan in studio to discuss his album, and perform a few songs from it.
