I grew up in a tiny town in Finland called Tuusula with my parents, my big brother and our dog, Nala.
She’s a Lapland dog.
Nearly everyone in my family is a pilot. Stunt, commercial, fighter, you name it, we got it.
I’m too blind to be a pilot so my dad gave me a guitar when I was five.
I fell in love with it.
Found Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Fell in love with blues.
Made music on the side while pursuing a pro football career.
Played against Real Madrid.
Lost against Real Madrid.
Chose music and started writing songs.
Joined the army and became a part of the urban warfare squad.
Learnt about proper work ethics.
Moved to London alone to pursue a career in music.
Did over 1000 shows in 4 years.
Found and lost my courage a million times.
Decided that I need someone else on my team.
Got screwed over.
Decided that I don’t need anyone else on my team.
Got signed to Sony Music Germany.
Realised that I did need a TEAM…got a great one.
Released my first single.
It went "just a little" well.
Released my second single "Don't hurt yourself" and shot a music video in self isolation.
Used an iPhone, Skype & some toilet paper rolls to do it. True story!
Then I met some awesome French producers who asked me to help out with a track called “Coconut Water”. We put it out and it’s looking like it might have been a pretty good decision.
My next single "Someone Like You" is my best yet and OUT NOW so please go check it out!
