Tuomo

 

Tuomo

He's a soul man, a jazz pianist, a composer, a lyricist and a producer. He's been awarded with loads of prices and reaped thrilled praise both in his home Finland and abroad. He has toured Japan, Estonia, Germany and Austria and recently reached number five in Tokyo Hot 100 Chart with his single ”Don't Take it Too Hard”. And besides his instantly successful solo career, he has contributed in almost each and every one of the coolest Finnish rhythm music combos having appeared in the last few years: Quintessence, Ilmiliekki Quartet, Emma Salokoski Ensemble, MP4 and Huba, to name just a few.

Chances are, then, that if you have visited Ilosaarirock Festival during the last few years, you have already seen Mr. Tuomo ”King Prät” Prättälä in action. But that's certainly no reason to skip Tuomo's first solo gig at Laulurinne festival ground. In between working on the follower to the fabulous solo debut album My Thing and his approximately two thousand and forty-eight other projects, he is going to pay a visit to the Ilosaarirock Festival 2008. Tuomo will blow hot, Tuomo will blow cool, and may very well blow your mind if Seventies style soul and funk is your thing too.
