Having their roots in eastern Europe, with an international music education, the three sought-after musicians of East Drive found their mutual home in ‘world music’. They mingle a virtuosic creation of modern jazz, russian melancholic melodies, polka, indian classical music, latin american interludes as well as funk, distorted guitar and most importantly: groove. East Drive – these three men are curious globetrotters crossing musical borders in a self-confident and joyful way.
With the addition of Olivia Trummer we now have an „uprising star“ of the german jazz scene joining. She is a multi-talented young artist, playing the piano, singing and composing. After having released numerous musical works of her own, she has been a celebrated sensation for the past few years.
East Drive is an energetic and colourful creation enthusing every audience with instinctive and unshakeable interplay, virtuoso performance, and – as the cherry on top – Olivia Trummers crystal clear, expressive voice and wonderful piano playing.
‘FolkSongs 2 is fresh, invigorating and will hopefully raise the bar for other contemporary acts to follow. An absolute rock solid performance where all the stars are in perfect alignment and the band is on point every step of the way.’
