Tampa-based indie folk singer/songwriter Connor Zwetsch has partnered with The Bluegrass Situation for the exclusive song premiere of, “Candy Bars,” from her debut EP, What Comes After (out 8/21/15). “Candy Bars” is an upbeat single about youth and joyfulness, and the carefree feelings of adolescence that is a favorite at Connor’s live gigs. Zwetsch graces her live performances with a warm, sultry voice that evokes a sort of comfort when she’s on stage and translates to the song. Here is what Connor had to say about “Candy Bars“:
“‘Candy Bars’ has a very special place in my heart. I feel guilty even taking credit for writing the lyrics because it effortlessly flowed through me. Luckily, I happened to be lying in bed strumming my guitar when it arrived and from that, ‘Candy Bars’ was born. I grew up in the small suburban town that is Lutz, Florida. I spent my youth sneaking out of my house in the middle of the night, roaming the neighborhood with friends, doing things we shouldn’t have been doing. You know, just being kids.” – Connor Zwetsch
What Comes After was recorded at Bear Creek Studio with multi-platinum producer Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Vance Joy, RaRaRiot). The EP will be released through Noble Steed Music on August 21st (pre-order here). What Comes After is an autobiographical collection that will resonate with all who are navigating love, loss, and the search for life’s silver linings. It’s a celebration of the big and small things: water wasted, bridges burned, gas station wine, and whatever it is that comes after.
