ABOUT

ME

I am a Finnish jazz double bass player and composer. In 2018 I was awarded as the 'Rising Star of the year' at the Pori Jazz Festival. Earlier in 2018 I won the 1st prize at the Riga Jazz Stage international Bass contest.

 

I am currently based in New York, where I finished my Master’s degree at the highly acclaimed Manhattan School of Music in May 2017. 

 

I perform with a variety of groups in both the U.S. and Europe, including a jazz quartet a lead - Kaisa’s Machine. The band released its debut album In the Key of K via Eclipse Music in December 2017 and we'll be on tour in Europe in the Spring 2019!

"Mäensivun soitto on äärimmäisen tarkkaa mutta letkeää. Harvan käsissä kontrabasso soi yhtä vangitsevasti ja karismaattisesti. Hyvin svengaavaa." - Arttu Seppänen, HS
