Biography Sanna Ruohoniemi

Sanna Ruohoniemi
based in Stockholm, Sweden is the latest in a long line of strikingly individual Nordic artists & composers who successfully melds the open-sky freedom of jazz with the rich folk traditions of her homeland.

Considered among one of the young generation’s most interesting vocalists & music creators in the Nordics, Sanna is known for her improvisational verve and creative risk-taking. With her new album, ”Start from Nothing” (Eclipse Music) she continues the bold and self-determined journey into the world of modern vocal jazz, offering a rich and vibrant combination of what jazz music can be all about.

”One of the best jazz albums made on 2018”. – Jukka Piiroinen (Valonkuvia)

”This modern jazz album makes a virtuosic combination of experimentation, beauty of the tones and joyfulness of improvisation”- Juha Seitz (Pohjalainen / Ilkka)

”If your favorite 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. ” -Phil Lively on ”The Progressive Aspect” (UK)

Successful album release tour began from Helsinki, Finland on 21st of September followed by international tour. First album release concert in Sweden took place on the opening day of Stockholm Jazz Festival on 12th of October. November 15th Sanna performed on Sydney International Women Jazz Festival being the only representative from Europe.
