I am wishing everyone a wonderful, prosperous, musical and inspirational 2019.

For me, 2018 marked a rather musical productive year.
In the first place having created and recorded a lot in the studio. Fundaments for what is to come in 2019.
I also had great times during performances with Mäläskä. Each of the concerts was a total unique experience amd a blast. It really is a continuous pleasure to share a same state of mind with Petter, as well as the group of talented people involved into our unprepared sessions. Definitely looking forward to more!

This new year, my label Deserted Island Music is aiming to be more active than before.
Kicking off soon with the distribution of the beautiful Ars Phantasia project. A project in the making for a couple of years will finally see the light. More information about this album will be revealed within coming weeks!

Secondly, there will be a special focus on my debut album from 1999, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
"Exhibition of Dreams" will be celebrated with a special anniversary box set and several performances covering my career until date. Including an one-off integral performance of the original album's pieces.

On top of that, I am finishing studio work on an entire new solo album, scheduled for the third quarter of 2019. And in the meanwhile I am working on a couple of other exciting projects. More details follow as soon as they are available.

And last year's presence of Mäläskä will be continued and extended in 2019, by means of more gigs, and most likely a second album release.

Although I can't mention any concrete details and dates yet, I am excited for above mentioned announcements. So stay tuned for any updates!
