As a singing guitar player I’ve found work both as a front man and as part of a backup band.
Performing my own songs live is the most fulfilling thing to do I know but I have no problem with singing top 40 hits and thus I’ve entertained audiences in nightclubs or at corporate events for close to twenty years now. My clients have included everyone and everything from my local bar to big international companies such as Nokia and Finnair. My personal highlights as a freelance guitar player include live performances with great singers such as Osmo Ikonen, Tania Doko, LaGaylia Frazier and TV gigs such as the yearly Svenska Dagen (YLE, Finnish National Public Service Broadcasting company) featuring popular Swedish and Finnish acts. I’ve also throughoutly enjoyed playing with top jazz musicians such as Max Schultz, Jorma Kalevi Louhivuori or Jukka Perko. As a guitar player I think I excel in rhythm having started out accompanying myself.
