Info for Start from Nothing
The music of Sanna Ruohoniemi is jazz. It includes set pieces and improvised songs.
This is her second album. The title track, Start from Nothing, has been released as a single and it’s a beautiful example of modern vocal jazz. If your favourite brand of music isn’t jazz, if you’re unfamiliar with what is surely this broadest of genres, Start From Nothing is the perfect envoy for the album and indeed for the genre. It’s possible this music could at once put you on the back foot whilst tapping the other.
"It’s beautiful and I’m happy and proud of it – it surely is made with a heart and soul and some sweat and tears – which happens when you are determined and committed to put yourself out there and to gracefully embrace to bring out the things you fell, hear and acknowledge. I could not have done this with amazing people I have in my life. With my band – my precious music fellows that have played my written songs into real music. I’ve also so happy to be found collaboration with Johannes Lundberg who has done great job with recording, mixing and mastering." (Sanna Ruohoniemi)
