Sanna Ruohoniemi - Tales of a Stranger (2016) ECLIPSE MUSIC

Jazz singer Sanna Ruohoniemi (Fin) releases "Tales of a Stranger" on October 7th

Sanna Ruohoniemi, a Finnish jazz vocalist & composer, will be touring Finland and Sweden in October-November 2016

The album, “Tales Of A Stranger”, will be released on October 2016 via Finnish record label Eclipse Music, and presents Sanna and four Swedish musicians from the thriving jazz scene of Stockholm. It is Sanna’s debut album and will feature her as a jazz vocalist, improviser and composer.

Sanna together with her group makes a strong statement of what jazz is today. This quartet creates music that has it’s root in tradition of jazz with a mixture of the Nordic folk traditions, free improvised music and everything in between. The musical dialogue, their solid group energy, playfulness and catchy compositions draws the attention of the listener, as does the enchanting combination of delicate vocal sound with a twist of long Nordic winter’s rawness translated into music.

“Sanna is a very special singer, she will move you. With her quiet, naked persona and her truly honest musicianship she will take you to places and she will touch your heart. Sanna Ruohoniemi is a genuine jazz musician, true to her inner self, a seeker exploring the boundaries of her musical ability – very brave in her pursuit and certainly succesfull. This applies also to her group, they work really well together." – Irene Sjögren
