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 hasnt just made her one of Swedens most beloved artists in this genre three headlining performances at Englands biggest rockabilly festival Hemsby proves that shes also made a strong mark on the international market for rootsy rocknroll. The title track and first single Candy has already indicated that Evas 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 rocknroll generations transistor radios and jukeboxes. So convincing is her ability to zoom back to the songwriting atmosphere of those legendary days that youd 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 its just another example of 1960. Dive deep into Buzz, Is My Baby Happy Now or Old School for proof in the matter. Evas band The Major Keys consisting of Chris Bergström (guitar), Jan Östlund (bass) and Adam Östlund (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 Månsson on saxophone. Together they put a groove to Evas catchy songs that makes you want to forget everything about social distancing and just get out there on the dancefloor. But for now, well have to do with a collection of songs so sweet that it can make even a dentist addicted to sugar.
