Scott Candlish

“I want to do as much as I can, so I don’t have any regrets in 6 years’ time.”


Scott Candlish graced the Cornish Arms Open Mic stage showing passion and emotive quality throughout his brilliant performance. His expressive vocal tone and airy guitar gave off a nostalgic vibe, drawing the audience’s attention to this promising musician.

Playing some original acoustic songs for us, he showed his great talent for songwriting. His performance displays a passion for classic melody and harmony, influenced by the likes of Simon and Garfunkel, Crowded House and Daniel Johns.

“Harmonies create such a balance and enhance the overall sound, like a magnet coming together.”

As a 22 year-old music student, Scott is coming into his own as a performing artist. In his determination to learn and grow as a musician, he keeps his attention focused on his music:

“I put pressure on myself to play and get better… I have a passion for music, it just feels right.”

With a newly-formed band and an EP in the works, he hopes to spend the next few years developing his skills and building his audience. Scott is determined to explore all musical possibilities while he can.

“I want to share and play my music and pick up as many people as possible on the way. I want to do as much as I can, so I don’t have any regrets in 6 years time.”

Scott is pretty excited for the year ahead. He hopes to continue on his musical journey and get his band out there to develop a following:

“I have a solid ground of confidence and now it’s just about developing ways to connect with people.”
