Wednesday 16 May: Onni Boi
Onni Boi is a Helsinki-based singer, who quickly caught the attention of music business insiders in the spring of 2017. The electronic songs, which exude a delicate nocturnal mood, garnered plenty of praise on Finnish radio stations and the internet. In a unique way, the songs lend themselves to both partying and shedding happy tears.
The debut EP of the style-conscious artist, who relies on a delicate, melancholy mood, was released in October 2017. The single from the EP, “Colors”, was the second most played Finnish song on the Bassoradio radio station in 2017
Wed 6 June: Pesso
Pesso is a Helsinki-based musician, songwriter and rap artist who has been making music for half his life. With various projects under his belt, the 28-year-old music-maker does everything himself, from composing and writing lyrics to arranging and producing.
Musically, Pesso is inspired by experimental solutions and unusual production methods. Pesso feels that it is important to make music in the environments that inspire the songs. For this reason, the bulk of the material has been composed, written, and partially recorded at home, with the artist in the bathroom, sitting by the window, or enjoying a coffee at the dining table.
Pesso’s debut single “Tiistai” (“Tuesday”) has been played frequently on radio stations and streaming services, and his live performances have been widely praised. This is reason enough for you to come and personally check out Pesso’s Experimental Spectacular Live Show!
