When you ask the duo what genre they are they laugh and say ”Swedicana”. Merge Swedish folk tradition with country and some Americana. Add a hint of soul then whip it all tougher with a slight Scandinavian accent and you have SWEDICANA

The Swedish husband and wife duo Thyra follow up their spring album Nashville Songs & Stories with 3 single tracks this fall.
First out, October 9, is "Drinking you off my mind"
About the song:
A well established songwriter once asked the duo as they where playing a show at The Listening Room in Nashville. ”-Can I hear your drinking song? ” As Karin answered, -"I’m not sure we have one", he continued - "Honey, Everybody needs a drinking song”. It took a while but this summer the couple sat down and wrote their own.
It’s a positive song about letting go and how sometimes it takes a drink (or two) to realize you’ve waisted your time and need to move forward.
Previous singles, Witchcraft and Why We work, from the album Nashville Songs & Stories have frekvent plays on Swedish Radio P4 cross country, European Country Radio and in The USA. The couple had a huge success with their pandemic proof Back Yard Sessions this summer and will be featured this month in Amelia, Swedens top women’s magazine.
