I am a singer-songwriter from Limerick (Ireland). I'm originally from Finland and therefore combining Scandinavian sounds into my folk-pop style. The most important thing for me in music is that it touches and therefore I strive for a strong presence and authenticity. The stories in my music are deep and gain more layers with each listen.
As an artist, my major passion is to write and perform my own music. I started to write songs during High School because I had a need to put my thoughts and feelings somewhere. In Finnish, I have published an album with a rock band called Projektio (2016) and an EP (2018) and an album (2020) with a duo called jukra. Nowadays I write mostly in English and I have released my debut solo single In A Whisper on the 14th of April and a single A Bird on the 19th of May 2023.
I graduated as a Musician (2006) and have completed a Bachelor's Degree in Social Sciences (2010) and Music Pedagogy (2019). In the Fall of 2022, I graduated from the University of Limerick, Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, Ireland. I did my Master's Degree in Songwriting.
I teach vocals in the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance. I also teach vocals in private music school Demo (Finland) and private students as a sole-trader. I use several means in teaching as I have studied basic levels (1 and 2) from Estill Voice Training. My education and experience are based on Afro-American music such as rock, pop, folk and soul.
In my teaching, I face every client as an individual. Getting to know every client is important to me. My mission is to get people to sing in their everyday life. Many are ashamed of their singing or have physical or mental tension. As a vocal teacher, I have many tools to ease people’s singing challenges. The technique is one tool, but facing people and talking with them is another and maybe even more important tool. A human being is holistic so as a teacher I want to face people holistically.
