Ilosaarirock, Pori Jazz and Norah Jones!

25 Jul

Hello!

Hope your summer has been great. We´ve been doing a lot of great things, including playing amaZING shows and finalizing our album. Can´t believe it will be released in less than one month.

We haven´t played with the whole band too much lately, but one of the latest full band- shows happened not too long ago in a festival called Ilosaarirock. It´s one of the nicest festivals in Finland and the variation of music is always a huge positive surprise. Anthony & The Johnsons with Joensuu city orchestra, The Xx, Apocalyptica, Mayhem, First Aid Kit to name a few. And then this band called Eva & Manu. On Sunday was our turn. All the weather forecast promised a huge storm hitting us about exactly on the minute we were walking on stage. 15 minutes before the show the crowd started to gather around Rekkalava, where we played. Our drummer, Eeti started to play and when we heard the people scream of joy, we jumped on stage and had one of the best shows ever. And no, the storm didn´t arrive but instead we we´re supported by a big sun throughout the whole show. THANK YOU ILOSAARIROCK!

At YleX interview:

PORI JAZZ AND NORAH JONES

Last weekend Eva got to sing on one of the biggest stages in Finland, Pori Jazz Kirjurinluoto Areena. She was singing with her family band, The Northern Governors, led by her brother Jorma Kalevi Louhivuori, a master of trumpet! Eva got to sing and dance with her cousins, sisters and friends. Some magic happend on the backstage; Eva got to know to the super nice crew of Norah Jones. She performed at Kirjurinluoto Areena after The Northern Governors.  To give you a little heads up, Norah Jones has been the biggest influence on Eva´s career. To mention, her first big show was Norah Jones Covers in Poppari, Jyväskylä. Eva has only been dreaming about meeting Norah and telling her how much her music means to her. Well, just before Norah Jones´show, Eva talked to her assistant who arranged a meeting with Eva and Norah. There´s probably no words to describe how Eva felt when Norah Jones accepted the album of Eva & Manu!! She is officially the first owner of our album! Thank you Norah and thank you Pori Jazz!

Thank YOU for following, WE LOVE YOU!

Heyy!

It´s been a while since the last post. We have been working hard on our album and now its done! Wohoo! Again, the release date is 17.8.2012, a day we will also perform at Huvilateltta, Helsingin Juhlaviikot. Actual CD release concert will take place a bit later on, we´ll inform you as soon as we know it! Such a great feeling, this is our first album ever!

We created a Facebook event for all our summershows. Unfortunately, we had to cancel todays show at Musiikkikahvila Sointu, Turku. Manu lost his voice and looks like nothing but a good rest helps.
We are rebooking a new show to Sointu!
