A name who is currently probably only few a term outside of the singer/songwriter scene in Finland. To believe an album where it however hard that his maturity and serenity in a debut and in fact: digging deeper, one encounters when Westerlund on a Vita that has already permanent traces in the Finnish music underground. As a guitarist, he published with the band in the 1990s four, until today very influential albums that are unique in their bizarre mixture of Captain Beefheart, birthday party and punk energy, sweetheart.

That he is still a great instrumentalist on banjo and guitar with a gifted voice makes this album a gem of… well, indie-folk? Americana? Somewhere between classic singer songwriters, alternative folk, and Hobo songs would be the location where Janne Westerlund feels most comfortable musically. The he by the way and he has already proved that plain ride albums on four also still has a fantastic sense of great songs with essential texts is a godsend. Despite the currently very productive Finnish songwriter scene dominated Oran”since striking out from the crowd. On because he makes it almost entirely to the common cliches of the Guild to give others and himself to be first and foremost. Because it is particularly gratifying that Janne Westerlund will come in early October on tour in Germany and his album will be presented live. You can look forward to concerts of impressive intensity!
