The reason for Candie’s happiness is that brother Sean, drummer in the aforementioned Liverpool-based quintet, asked little sis’ to warm-up for the band after watching her rehearse recently.“Getting big brother’s approval is a big deal,” she beams. “But rehearsals (with backing band The Joneses, of Edgar Jones fame) have gone really well so far.
