Artists

The Hearing

The Hearing is a one-woman act, a twenty-five year old woman called Ringa Manner who creates her harmonic and rhythmic music using multiple instruments. Her 2013 debut album Dorian is a confident debut showing genuine musical creativity and strong songwriting. If you're into warm vocal harmonies and pop melodies like Owen Pallet and St. Vincent, The Hearing is a must for you.

NEØV

NEØV originated in the idyllic Finnish Lakeland town of Juankoski - the five piece’s distinctive sound palette mixes floating melodies and flowing rhythms with layered guitars, dozy keyboards and horns, influenced by their current home town Kuopio, a city surrounded by water, with several parts of the town built on small islands: it’s expansive but quiet, grandiose but intimate.

The Scenes

Formed in the snowy climes of Northern Finland in 2009, The Scenes create music influenced by psychedelia, hardcore punk and progressive rock. Led by singer Konsta Koivisto and all under the age of 23, the band are already developing a reputation for their shamelessly energetic, lights out and mayhem live performances.

Softengine

You might know this alternative rock band from the Eurovision Song Contest 2014, where they represented Finland. Even though they didn't win with their song Something Better, it definitely stirred up interest in both the Finnish and international media. It has become one of the most played songs on Finnish radio and the band consequently signed a recording contract with Sony Music Finland. And now, Softengine is ready to take over Europe!

Showtime

Music Finland’s participation in Eurosonic is part of ETEP - European Talent Exchange Programme, funded by the European Union.
