After three Iconcrash albums I feel ready for my first official solo album. I started Iconcrash as my solo effort and during these years I have been fortunate to work with a lot of amazing musicians who were as close as family to me, but now I feel like doing something different and I'm daunted by where this journey is taking me "for you the Iconcrash fans, yes, there is still lots more to come, but I have the urge to explore this new chapter in my life that I can't wait to share with you all".
I have been working both in London and Helsinki over the past few months, gathering a ton of new stories, experiences and meeting very interesting characters and I am super excited by the way this new record is organically growing up.
I wanted to share with you the exciting news now so I can keep you guys in the loop about the recordings. Will take you to weird places with me and I hope you will enjoy the ride as much as I am.
Eternally grateful for your unconditional support and love over the years,
