JANNE WESTERLUND

Janne Westerlund, known from Circle, Plain Ride and Sweetheart, has published three acclaimed albums and the fourth is about to see the daylight during autumn 2018.

His solo production, inspired by folk and blues, has gained more and more archaic tones along the years. The ascetic expression echoes the tones of traditional folk songs as well as medieval music. Despite the seemingly simple expression there are many layers to the melodies, where unscrupulousness and elevating beautiness do not exclude one another. There is an exceptionally personal level in his expression, which is emphasized by the extreme minimalism.. 

The main instruments of Janne Westerlund's solo performances are baritone guitar, banjo and dulcimer.
