Jenni Vartiainen

The adorable Jenni Vartiainen

Jenni Vartiainen is adorable, there's no denying it. Usually someone who has risen to fame as a polished record label product is bound to be more or less dubious, but in Jenni's case, it's hard to go on with a suspicious mind. Before Jenni everyone's unarmed. Her ultra stylish music echoes British triphop and dark-toned ambient pop, and the lyrics tell atmospheric stories of behind the scenes events of adulthood. Jenni Vartiainen is, in short, charming. Beautiful as a picture and glowing mysterious charisma, she directs her sighing vocals straight to the audience and glitters with self-confidence. She embodies the seducing pride and mysterious beauty that unfortunately are such rare qualities for a Finnish female artist.

Jenni and her band were on a tour break for almost the whole last year. During the break Jenni worked on the follow-up for her debut album Ihmisten edessä that sold platinum and received praising reviews. The new album, released in the spring, shows whether the success was due to coincidence or talent – though the tea leaves predict that chance has nothing to do with it. Ilosaarirock warmly welcomes Jenni to the festival.
