Mr Saarni Music:
Producer, Recording, Mixing and Mastering Engineer, Vocalist, Guitarist, Bass player, Head of Record Label, Video editor and a human
"I started to listen to music back in 1997ish and realised it was the best thing in life. Got my first guitar in 1999 and played first live show in 2000. In 2005 I recorded my first demo to my main band at the time, Astral Sleep, which is still active.
During my years as a musician I have been a guitarist, vocalist, bassist and a drummer in numerous bands. As an audio engineer I have produced, recorded, mixed (in studio and live) and mastered wide selection of bands from many kinds of musical genres.
In 2009 I wanted to learn more about professional audio recording and attended the Music Technology school in Orimattila, Finland. After my graduation in 2012 I have worked as a freelancer in various projects in studio- and live environment. I founded Saarni Music and Saarni Records in 2016 and work with them full time"
