as Musician

Besides acting, doing music has always been a big part of my life. I have done music together with my siblins since we were young. I guess we got influenced already in childhood because music played big role in our home. Our parents were playing lot´s together and my homevillage Ykspihlaja, small harbor district in Kokkola, had (and still has) very active music-, and theatrescene. Later, when I moved to Helsinki I mostly got interested in writing songs my own.

 

Mostly I love writing songs in finnish, but then there is also for example a band called Lada Nuevo that I founded in 2011, to whom I like to write also songs by using pseudolanguages. At some point it became hard to me to decide what kind of music would really be my thing, and I just desided to do it as many ways as I ever want. That´s how I found all these projects on this site. Some of them, hopefully every single, are projects lasting through entire life.

 

Behind some of projects you can find more info, like demos etc. by clicking. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you want to hear more, or ask about bookings.

Oona Airola

My soloproject. I'm composing and writing lyrics and, work together with producer Sampo Haapaniemi with the material. Style is basically finnish popmusic, but it's influenced of rock and then on the other hand it can be seen as folky singer-songwriter stuff. First single will be released on spring 2017.
