shouttheband SHOUT In 2010, after a band break-up and several years of song writing, guitar player Eero ”Eetu” Nieminen decided to assemble a bunch of ambitioned musicians together for a fresh new start. It began with acoustic jam sessions in the basement of a ramshackle house without any future master plans. However, the band needed a lead singer and after few hilarious and improvisational try-outs the honesty and musical talent of Eero inspired the new lead singer Hannu Hirvensalo to join the group. In a few weeks time, the band enlarged with two rock solid pros. The guitar player Carl “Kiffe” Sjöblom along with his brother and a longtime drummer Ville “Sjöba” Sjöblom influenced strongly on the band’s current music production. The classical pop/pop-rock melodies were spiced up with a hint of fresh vibes of new music and the band started to form tight together. Furthermore, as the charismatic and funk-oriented bass player Aki Karumaa filled the missing fifth spot, the puzzle achieved its final form. Today, after demo recordings and new material the energetic band is ready for the next step. This is the beginning of something real and new. This is SHOUT!
