Browsing through our last year’s bolg brought back all the highlights of the year and all the things we need to be grateful of, now that the year is coming to an end.
We had an awesome summer, filled with gigs and festivals, each one very different from the other. From Kuopio dance festival to Haapavesi folk festival to Pori Jazz to a Tampere flamenco festival and then to Oulu’s biggest rock festival Qstock. Now tell me, what other bands have such a wide variety of places to perform at? And that wasn’t all folks. We are truly glad to have had such a warm welcome at each place we went to. This litte article was published after Qstock festival at a musician’s web-portal called meteli.net. They wrote something nice about us too.
Last year we had also done some serious songwriting as we worked on most of the songs that are now in our repertoire. The same songs, including some brand new ones will ofcourse appear on our album next spring.
Last autumn will surely be remembered as the “recordings autumn”. Each one of ous had our turn at the Hietasaari studio, built by our own recorning and producing genious Okko. Since then he has been working hard to get our upcoming album to sound as good as it can – to sound like us. For that we are also grateful. Thanks Okko! <3
We have also been granted some financial support for the publishing of the record from various directions – yet another thing to be thankful of. It really is important to know your music is considered to be worth the support, especially when you decide to push through with your own decisive ambitions and want to be independent.
There’s still alot of work ahead. That’s why now it’s time to take a moment and enjoy the silence, candle light and rest. Next year will be even better and busier.
