New EP Out Today

I am thrilled to announce that my latest EP, Wicked Crown, is out today (June 11th). You can listen to it on your digital platform of choice: Spotify, Bandcamp, Apple, Youtube, etc. Also, a limited number of CDs are available via Bandcamp or directly from me. I could not have done this myself. I have to thank Adriel Ferguson (drums), Rachel Gawell (cello), Danny Peña (accordion), Pat Hanlin (mixing), Paul Mahern (mastering), and Learan Kahanov (cover photography).

Music

About

Jukka is a singer-songwriter currently based in Massachusetts. His music is best described as a type of folk-rock deeply rooted in the American singer-songwriter aesthetic and indie rock of the 1990s, combining lyrical impressionism and a textured sound. A multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer, his tools of choice are his voice and a guitar. 

Growing up in a musical family, his first forays into music began at an early age. When he was ten, he recorded a naive, but catchy original with some of Finland's best musicians of the day. It was called "Back in the Black with a Heartache Too". There are no surviving copies. He also tried to take a nap in J.J. Cale's guitar case, sometime in the mid-1970s...or at least, so he was told.
