Q1- Who are you?

My name is Frances Candelaria, I’m a laidback anxious woman who swears a little too often, drinks coffee far too much, and loves weird sh*t, my kids, and food. Born in California and raised in Colorado, and then spent 8 years in the Marine Corps before moving to Iowa in 2015 when I left active duty. I now work for a couple of cool people down at Farro’s Lead Farm in Long Grove, Iowa.

Q2- Why do you love hard rock?

Most of my earliest memories are of my dad playing The Eagles, Chicago, Cream, Three Dog Night, and such on the guitar. As I grew up I naturally gravitated to listening to rock music. Hard rock just always pumped me up, I related so much more to the lyrics and energy of hard rock than any other music.

Q3- Who is your favorite band?

This is a difficult question to answer, but I will never get sick of listening to Underoath

Q4- What is the best concert you’ve ever seen?

Another hard question that makes it a tie between seeing  A Day To Remember in Okinawa Japan and finally seeing Underoath live here in the Quad Cities.
