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 1950s and early '60s.
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 the UKs biggest rockabilly festival Hemsby proves that she's also made a strong mark on the international market for roots rock'n'roll.
The title track Candy immediately indicates 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.
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 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 Eva's catchy songs that makes you want to forget everything and just get out there on the dancefloor.
