Petteri Sariola (1984) is a fingerstyle virtuoso. He's known for his fierce live performances, beautiful songwriting and percussive approach on the acoustic guitar. He picked it up at the age of 7 but after countless non-functional bands he ended up developing a virtuosic style of his own, covering all the sounds of a full band on an acoustic guitar while singing his heart out. No loops, no backing tracks. Sariola has played almost a thousand shows, toured solo around Europe, USA and Japan and reached millions of viewers on YouTube. His brand new album "Resolution" has received raving reviews and it concludes a 10 year project of creating a trilogy of albums containing original compositions. Sariola has been awarded with Nokia Young Talent scholarship, Honorary Prize in the Helsinki Funk Awards, City Magazine Guitarist of the year and as the cover article of Akustik Gitarre, the biggest acoustic guitar magazine of Europe. He has opened concerts for Tori Amos (USA), Andy McKee (USA) and Rodrigo Y Gabriela (MEX), and collaborated with Doug Wimbish (Madonna, Living Colour), Jon Gomm (UK), Mike Dawes (UK), Elastinen, Rajaton, Don Johnson Big Band, Felix Zenger (James Brown, N.E.R.D.), Osmo Ikonen (Sunrise Avenue), just to mention a few. "If I could play like you I wouldn't build guitars." -Jean Larrivee, founder of Larrivee Guitars
