Greetings from Helsinki, Finland!
« on: November 11, 2014, 12:15:22 AM »
Hello dear reader and greetings from cold Helsinki, Finland!

My name is Juuso and I am 24 years old musician - my instruments are guitar, bass, drums, violin piano, & flute. I have recently finished recording my debut album in my very own studio, which makes me very happy! "Interpretations I" contains familiar compositions by Italian composer & pianist Ludovico Einaudi arranged for guitar- and string-sections. I arranged, performed, recorded, & engineered the entire album myself during the year 2014 in Helsinki, Finland.

Ludovico Einaudi has allways been a huge influence for me and has given me inspiration not just in music, but also generally in life. I feel proud of my creation and I hope it honors the work of Ludovico Einaudi at least on some levels.

The album will be digitally released in December 1st 2014 on Youtube, Spotify and iTunes-store, but meanwhile here is the opening-track, Primavera. With all my heart I hope You find something for yourself from this piece of music.

Juuso

Welcome from me too. I was fortunate enough to visit my friends in Helsink in the summer of 2013. It is a beautiful city. We visited the home of Sibelius (Aino) - a wonderful experience.
