Johanna Elina Sulkunen Copenhagen www.johannaelinasulkunen.com “Johanna Elina continues to cultivate her style.” – Helsingin Sanomat ★★★★ “Denmark based singer/songwriter with a jazz background is even more fearless and abstract than before” […] “The background of Sulkunen lies in jazz, but in the music as it is now, you can hear it only as broad-mindedness and “experimental”. And in the outstanding expression in the voice, that plays along with a small group- keys, guitar and drums – that has played and produced in many layers. ” – Helsinging Sanomat 2016 “ It is an unusually peculiar and beautiful debut from the 29- year -old Johanna Elina. There is lyrical depth and evocative and elegantly varied musical expressions. It is feel-good music, feel-sad music and feel-absolutely-beautiful music throughout all the 10 well- rounded tracks.” – KultuNaut. DK ****** “Everything is close, playful, genre-mixing and sufficiently reckless, without letting the voice lose its grip...” – GAFFA.DK **** “ Exciting new voice on the Danish jazz scene is bidding fall welcome with a confident and compassionate debut… … A welcome new acquaintance that goes against the institutional jazz diva affectations, and gives space for independent and original song writing.” – Geiger. “It is music with depth, which insists on being listened to.” Jazz Nytt, DK.
