What’s your relationship to Helsinki?
Helsinki is my hometown, and also the city where I grew up. So the relationship is pretty tight.
You have travelled around the world. How would you compare Helsinki to other cities in Europe?
What’s the best in Helsinki?
It’s one of the coolest and nicest cities in the world. Almost everyone who comes over is amazed by its beauty. It’s not too big, but big enough. It’s surrounded by the sea and lots of islands. I would recommend visiting Helsinki between May and September to anyone.
What’s your favorite Finnish band or artist?
Well, to me of course the people, like my real friends and my family of course. The restaurant / food scene is one of the best in the world, and especially in the summer time there are million things going on every day. It’s also very clean and safe everywhere unlike many other capitals in Europe.
What are you or Sunrise Avenue currently working with?
Now we’re touring our Best of Tour until September. Then we will see again. I’m also filming a new TV show Die Band in Barcelona.
