Ina Forsman is an award-winning Finnish singer and songwriter based in Berlin. With her powerful, expressive, honey-burnt voice, she performs her self-written songs that intersect soul, blues, jazz and R&B.
Her phrasing crisscrosses terrain that encompasses the influences of Etta James, Amy Winehouse and Aretha Franklin; she can dial into a song with a throaty, dynamic wail or a slippery, wry, subtle croon. After winning 2013's Finnish Blues Challenge she was selected to represent her homeland at the European Blues Challenge in Riga, Latvia. Soon after that, she signed to Ruf Records, which issued her self-titled debut in 2016. It was recorded over a week in Austin, Texas and released globally to widespread acclaim. Mark "Kaz" Kazanoff produced the album, and also plays saxophone on the album together with Texas Horns. The set's honey-burnt cover of Nina Simone's "I Want a Little Sugar in My Bowl" landed on global streaming charts and public radio in the U.S. that same year.
In 2016, Forsman toured the U.S. and Europe with Layla Zoe and Tasha Taylor.
In 2018, She co-produced her 2019 sophomore solo offering Been Meaning to Tell You with Kazanoff in Austin, that landed top.5 on US Blues Chart top 100 on it`s releasing week.
