Tomorrow night - playing a show in Helsinki together with the kantele band Kardemimmit!
Tomorrow night I'll be playing at Club Liberté again! I have invited a very special folk band to join me - Kardemimmit http://www.kardemimmit.fi/. They are a band of four young women who play kantele and sing folk-inspired tunes - their music just takes you to a different world. If you are in Helsinki, please don't miss it!

Hey there everybody,
Been low profile for a while. A lot going on right now, with my band Moonaddict we're finally releasing our first album. Working on that, finishing the album.
Meanwhile my solo stuff didn't go that well. Though recently it started to come again.
YOU GOT ME DREAMIN'
First off, You Got Me Dreaming is a song which Alain (Lead Gitarist of Moonaddict) and I improvised years ago. It describes the impact a certain woman had on me. I nowadays live with her, Elisabeth, the beautiful woman of my life. This is one of the songs that proofs that words and lyrics really are magic and I believe that this can alter lives.
Elisabeth and I watched a beautiful film called Va, Vis et Deviens, Which is french for Go, live and become. This film touched my soul deeply. It tells the story of a young man growing up in a strange environment, dealing with every possible hardship there is to encounter when religion, heritage, race and love become obstacles. Though my adoption is not at all similar to his story, I couldn't help myself finding similarities on the emotional and spiritual level. In terms of what the title asumes, I did find myself in a similar situation for I was given away to become someone. To have opportunities I wouldn't have gotten.
Sit Still was inspired by this film. At the same time I'd like to reach out to every individual that longs to be, that searches a way out, everyone that feels that individual love shouldn't be withheld by the claims of the masses. I'm still carving and polishing on the song, it might be altered along the way but since the sentiments are still so present, I wanted to share this with you people. It's a kind of dialogue I'll have with myself or whom it might concern.
That's is for now, I have some other new songs that I'm working on, yet to come...
