Caked in Candy
Starfly 69 formed in 2002 to write 'Strong', a track chosen as the official song of the Scottish Commonwealth Games Team for the Manchester Games of the same year. Having enjoyed television, radio and newspaper exposure during the tournament, the trio of Steve McDonald (production/keyboards/vocals), David Salvona (guitar) and Gill Wright (vocals) continued to work together and after two years of writing and recording songs at Moonbase Alpha, Steve's Edinburgh studio, 'Caked in Candy', the band's first studio album was completed in December 2004 and released in January 2005. The songs have been written in a variety of styles including dance, house, downtempo, acoustic. There are also some traditional Scottish/Celtic influences on some songs.
