All music by Candy Rose is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music and all digital platforms. CDs are rarely printed, as she’s very green, so they have become collector’s items and can only be found on very limited sites such as Amazon, CD Baby and very select and hand-picked retailers – if still available.

Christopher Taylor White (born 7 March 1943) is an English singer, songwriter, musician, and record producer.

White's music career spans more than 50 years. He came to prominence in the mid 1960s as the bass guitarist and occasional lead vocalist of the English rock band The Zombies. White is one of the main composers of the Zombies' music, and made major lyrical contributions to the band's songs. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019.

He became one of the band's two main songwriters, alongside Rod Argent, penning hits ('I Love You' for People) and a song now considered a standard ('This Will Be Our Year') during their initial existence. He also wrote seven of the twelve songs on the band's album and generally acknowledged masterpiece, Odessey and Oracle. White also contributed lead vocals to "Butcher's Tale (Western Front 1914)" and a verse of "Brief Candles".

Following the demise of the Zombies, White contributed songwriting and production work to Colin Blunstone's solo career and Rod Argent's new band, Argent. With Argent he wrote their 1972 hit "Hold Your Head Up".

After Argent split in 1976, there is little record of Chris White's achievements. Here are some of those unheard recordings.

This artist managed to combine stunning melodies with infectious grooves and great beats, in order to create a catchy, yet direct and edgy sound.

​Starting from the early 2000s, he continued to write original songs and received many accolades and recognitions for his work.

Osea Codega’s recent release, “Make Me Feel”, is a great example of his sonic vision, marking a really unique step forward for this artist, whose sound is becoming increasingly more personal and defined, one tune at a time.

The artist has a truly diverse song that borrows from a wide variety of influences, while maintaining a particularly personal approach to singing and songwriting. Osea is not quite a live performer. On the other hand, he much prefers to craft his songs in the studio, where he is free to unleash his full creative potential without restrictions and without any form of outside pressure. By surrounding himself by an encouraging, creative environment, Osea can create stunning songs that truly reflect his sensibilities as an artist and performer.
