Came across this young guy via social media, and there’s something definitely pleasing to the ear; see what you folk think (first 2 are originals, second 2 well known covers):-

Talented kid. Thanks

Re: Tomi Saario - new prospect from Finland?

For one reason and another, it's taken Tomi a while to get this new EP out, but it arrived through my door yesterday. Have to say, it's been well worth the almost 2 years wait. Granted, it is more of the "Pop" end of Blues, but it's loaded with tasty hooks, and when it does shine through, Tomi knows his way round a guitar - great use of distortion on last track, Stop The Rain. My favourite of the 3 is the piano driven Words Of A Broken Man, but neck-and-neck with the slightly jazzy I Could Be Bad - Jason Mraz influence there, unless my ears deceive.

In between times, Tomi has been continually writing and looks like an album may be in the pipeline, including a song he couldn't get on the EP -
Are You Ready For Me.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2eSPaoSN_Ac  (busked, raw)

While he is cool if you're are among the throngs of use that didn't live through 'Room for Squares' and 'Heavier Things'. It all sounds pretty much like the reinvention of the 'wheel' (no pun intended...) He is talented but need to find his own path.

Re: Tomi Saario - new prospect from Finland?

There is an album in the pipeline - be interesting to see how it shapes up.

Seems to have been a while since heard anything from Tomi, but he broke some great news yesterday on Faceache:-
“I’m very proud to officially announce that I have signed a record deal with one of Sony Music Germany’s subsidiaries, Four Music.
My team is built from a handful of some of the most amazing individuals and we’re ready for 2020. I can’t wait to finally start sharing all the music with you guys”
