Produced and mixed by legendary hit maker Michael Bradford, “Candyland Volume 1” is a collection of songs about AV’s escapades with PTSD, severe depression and anxiety, the prescription anti-depressant Pristiq, and medical hypnosis.
The groundwork for the “Candyland Remixes” project happened while AV was recording with a group of veteran musicians which included Michael Bradford at Ben Folds’ studio in Nashville. It was there AV recorded a riveting collection of 14 songs which turns the wild story of all of his medications and medical hypnosis adventures into pure pop and rock delights. AV appropriately named the project “Candyland”. “I created it in the hopes that maybe my story could help people like me,” he says.

The friendship with Bradford which eventually led to a powerhouse collaboration with the veteran pop/R&B producer, whose superstar resume includes Anita Baker, Madonna, Kid Rock, Dave Stewart and Deep Purple. “It just felt good working together” AV explains, “Before we knew it, we had a slew of dance and crossover club hits with a reported forty thousand club DJs supporting the remixes”.
