Decided to put up my first solo album on SC so you all can check
out. It’s an all instrumental album so it might not be for everyone. Here's
the link to the playlist:
A short background story about the album:
In recent years the possibility to make a solo album somehow had become more
enticing to me so I wrote a bunch of demos. I wanted to have the possibility to play
a lot of solos so I decided to make it an instrumental album.While thinking of possible
players I opted for Elias on guitar (since he owed me some tracks for playing on his
solo album) and Pasi on bass….who also suggested that we’ll give Jari (from our
Requiem days) a call to play the drums. As soon as the band was clear we started recording…working on a very non-existent budget Elias tracked his stuff at home, Pasi & me as well and Jari played electric drums at his friends house. Pasi then mixed the whole thing on his computer at home…. I think the final push to go from just recording demos for myself to actually move forward and release an album came from Elias: Whatta hell dude, of course you have to make a solo album…I already made 3 !!
Anyways, if you like this and want to help me finish the next one (which is
in the works at the moment) go ahead and buy a copy of the album at:
iTunes, GreatIndieMusic, Verizon,Rumblefish,24-7,Google Music Store,
Shazam…and I hear that you can get the Japanese Version on Amazon.com
amongst other places.
…I did print a limited batch for the SA webshop but those are sold out for
now. As I said in some of the comments on a previous post, the next album
will have mostly vocals selections :-)
Cheers, Beers and Enjoy…next weekend it’s back to work with SA and
the first two festival shows in Finland…I can hardly wait !!!
