Edith Backlund

Mixing strings with the sound of childrens’ laughter, broken guitars with the sound of rain, Edith Backlund is a true believer in contrasts.
Her new album “Death by Honey” was released in Sweden in April 2008.
Edith Backlund writes lyrics about women with seduction in their eyes and daggers in their purses. About fallen war-heroes and her fear of dying. And she sings with a voice that makes you feel like she’s right next to you, singing here and now and for your ears only.
“Death by Honey” is produced and recorded by former The Wannadies-frontman Pär Wiksten. He has also been involved in the writing process.
Edith Backlund was still a teenager when “You and Me-Song” owned the charts back in the 90’s. Needless to say, Pär Wiksten and The Wannadies were the it-band. Had Edith known back then that she would one day be recording an album with the man whose voice she’d been listening to for hours at end, she would not have believed it.
Edith and Pär fi rst met over coffee, a meeting arranged by a mutual friend. They decided to write a few songs together, just for the hell of it.
Before they knew what hit them, a year had passed. Ten new songs were written and ready to strike the world with amazement.
