Welcome

My music is blend of soft sounds, small spaces and undulating horizons. Mostly inspired by vintage & modern jazz and based on lounge. I also perform live with different groups and custom-made repertoire.

On the jazzed blog I want to share the current scene, and all those things which are influential in my work and life. Including events and other artists.

Bio

I grew up in the presence of beautiful National Park Aulanko in Hämeenlinna, Finland.
At the age of seven I started classical piano lessons and made my first song when I was eleven.
Later I have studied drama and audiovisual arts.

Valentine’s Day 2010 I sang solo live ‑ Sweet Dreams by Eurythmics ‑ in the Finnish version of TV show Clash of the Choirs on channel (4) Nelonen.
In the following July I received Kauko Viitamäki Jazz Award at LinnaJazz festival.
In the spring 2011 I was a model for fashion designer Ryota Shiga
for his fall/winter collection 2011/12 in Japan, Tokyo.
In September 2014 I published Cat by Mouse.
In Nov 5th 2015 extended play – Da Couple is released.

At the moment I’m performing, recording and blogging jazzed.
I have followed my heart here, and had great pleasure to work with
amazing people along.
For the beginning.
