THE SAILOR'S STORY
Get inspired by the story about the poor foster boy born in Aland, Finland 1916, who, against all odds, with passion and extreme talent succeeded with an impossible task.
MUSIC
The music is all instrumental to give you more space for your own emotional interpretations and reflections. Cinematic live strings and wordless vocals are intertwined with relaxing piano solos.
CREATIVE PROCESS
A lot of joy and passion went into creating this album, but also a lot of work. Many iterations have been created and rejected.  Get a peek into my workflow, and get to know my thoughts behind the music.
A MUSICAL JOURNEY ABOUT HARDSHIPS, LOVE, HOPE AND DEVOTION
I first heard about the remarkable man who is the main character on my album SONGS OF A SAD SAILOR when I came sailing to Åland a couple of years ago. 

I couldn’t forget this story that made such a big impact on me. While living a completely different and far less dramatic life than him, it played on so many strings in me. 

While working on my solo piano album I got the idea to use his story as a read thread and make it a concept album.
"This is totally magical and very high musical quality. It's really really beautiful!"
