Eva Eastwood - Candy [CD]
Cat. no: GG26
Release Date: 27th November 2020
Genre: Rock & Roll
Swedish rockabilly queen Eva Eastwood celebrates 20 years as a recording artist with her 12th studio album “Candy”, a bag of self-penned sweets for everyone who loves the music of the late 50 s and early 60 s.
Two decades of inspired songwriting, recording and touring hasn’t just made her one of Sweden’s most beloved artists in this genre - three headlining performances at England’s biggest rockabilly festival Hemsby proves that she’s also made a strong mark on the international market for rootsy rock’n’roll.
The title track and first single “Candy” has already indicated that Eva’s on top of her songwriting game. Song after song takes you on an amazing travel back in time to the lovely melodies and infectious groove that poured out of the first rock’n’roll generation’s transistor radios and jukeboxes. So convincing is her ability to zoom back to the songwriting atmosphere of those legendary days that you’d be forgiven for thinking that “Candy” might be a collection of cover versions of classic tunes by Brenda Lee, Etta James or Ruth Brown. But it’s just another example of 1960.
Dive deep into “Buzz”, “Is My Baby Happy Now” or “Old School” for proof in the matter. Eva’s band The Major Keys - consisting of Chris Bergstr m (guitar), Jan stlund (bass) and Adam stlund drums)
- backs her up with their usual groove and sense of economy, occasionally helped out by pianists Jonaz Wilson Stoltz and David Nordlund as well as Stefan M nsson on saxophone.
Together they put a groove to Eva’s catchy songs that makes you want to forget everything about social distancing and just get out there on the dancefloor. But for now, we’ll have to do with a collection of songs so sweet that it can make even a dentist addicted to sugar.
