Jazz vocalist & composer, Sanna Ruohoniemi, based in Stockholm, Sweden is the latest in a long line of strikingly individual Nordic artists & composers who successfully melds the open-sky freedom of jazz with the rich folk traditions of her homeland.
Considered among one of the young generation's most interesting vocalists & music creators in the Nordics, Sanna is known for her improvisational verve and creative risk-taking. With her new album, "Start from Nothing” (Eclipse) she continues the bold and self-determined journey into the world of modern vocal jazz, offering a rich and vibrant combination of what jazz music can be all about.
Europe Jazz picked the album among one of the best album releases on November 2018.
”If your favorite brand of music isn’t jazz, if you’re unfamiliar with what is surely this broadest of genres, Start From Nothing is the perfect envoy for the album and indeed for the genre.” -Phil Lively on "The Progressive Aspect” (UK)
”This modern jazz makes a virtuosic combination of experimentation, beauty of the tones and joyfulness of improvisation”- Juha Seitz on ”Ilkka”
