It's A Little Dark In Here, Mauri Dark Is About To Light It Up

It's about to get a little dark in here. Mauri Dark is about to lighten up the room with lots of musical experiences, new music, and a great showcase. Mauri Dark is a singer-songwriter, born 1978 in Turku, Finland. He has been writing songs for 25 years now making music both alone and in various bands. He has played around 500 shows in different countries and released 9 full length albums. Mauri Dark's autobiographical debut solo album Dreams Of A Middle-Aged Man invites you into dark, folky, timeless, intimate, and acoustic songscapes. There is a story behind the record, says the artist: "The songs and lyrics were made amidst the changes of breaking up from a 7-year relationship, my mother's death of cancer, and finding happiness again, getting married, having a firstborn daughter and making music." Equipped with a baritone guitar and his deep, low voice, Mauri Dark is an experienced musician and songwriter. For his self-produced-recorded-performed solo album, he got to work with his dream audio team. Associate producer Jussi Vuola is a band mate and a musical blood brother. Mixing engineer / associate producer Hiili Hiilesmaa is famous for his work with HIM, Apocalyptica and Amorphis. Vlado Meller has previously mastered albums for Johnny Cash, Metallica, and Michael Jackson, to name a few. Make sure to check him out down below and make sure to hit him up for any future projects.

Having previously been signed to Sony/BMG with Carmen Gray, one of Finland's finest rock bands, Tom Tikka has formed The Impersonators, a two-man project born out their ashes and designed to cut out the politics and strife which come from the rock ‘n' roll carnival of band life. Resolutely studio-based, the Josie Award-nominated The Impersonators channel the bejeweled power-pop of The Go-Betweens and the immediacy/worldliness of early R.E.M. to deliver timeless alt-pop melodies. 
 Comprising Tom Tikka and lyricist Antti Autio, The Impersonators are just that: a duo which masquerades as a full band and does everything it can to defy convention – whether that being their insistence on avoiding touring or their songs, which home in on the warts-and-all gnarliness of love and real life. In fact, if one were to find a common theme that runs through the group's entire catalog, it would probably be how life very seldom resembles or turns out like Disney fantasies. 
 Despite their poignant lyrics, The Impersonators are still a joyous proposition, with their vocal harmonies and chiming chords harking back to such 60s pop majesties as The Beatles, The Byrds and The Beach Boys. Together with their producer Janne Saksa, The Impersonators craft their lyrics and melodies into retro-flavoured "alternative pop/rock". While adding a modern twist to the final soundscape, their goal is to nurture and cultivate the creativity, spirit, and warmth that graced the pop records of yesteryears. Today we talk musical joruney, experience recording music, and an amazing performance.
