My name is Janne Saaristo and I’m a musician who never quit my day job. In April 2015 I’ve got myself a record deal and while producing the album I’ve also been writing this blog telling about the process.
What is there to tell then? I mean except the therapy? Well, good question. Maybe it could be interesting to hear what triggers a 42 year old full time working family father to spend his precious spare time writing, recording, talking his fellow musicians in to assist him during his studio sessions – all while knowing that there might not be any interest at all on the music when it’s released – despite the record deal. Or maybe not – that’s up to you.
However, for me this project is channel for my creativity. I have been involved in a lot of fun projects through the years. And my job as an Art Director at a content marketing agency is highly creative. But lately I have had a lot of creative ideas, and now I feel ready to launch this kind of project on my own. We’ll see if this is just a crazy idea, I mean, we’ll see how crazy this idea is.
