Ilosaarirock Festival 12th – 14th July 2013

Antero Lindgren

Antero Lindgren

In the spring of 2012 Antero Lindgren caught our music journalists unguarded. Who is this Antero Lindgren? Why no one knows anything? Is he really a Finnish artist? Yes indeed, Lindgren, a musician from Helsinki, crafted his debut album slowly and with care. Without the support of a major record label, any music performed in English is hardpressed to break trough here in Finland – unless the material is outstanding. And that's precisely what Antero Lindgren's debut album Mother is!

Lindgren's music is melancholic, delicate and captivating. His lived-in voice retells the classic song topics personally, yet as an outsider. Names like Mark Lanegan or Bob Dylan are not farfetched.

Having just released their new album Talking With Dead, Lindgren and his band come to Ilosaarirock Festival to provide a calm moment amidst the hubbub of the festival. We'll guarantee that this charismatic artist will wrap the audience inside their own little world.
