Antti Tuisku

Antti Tuisku is a Finnish pop star, whose rise to fame came from his competing in the Finnish version of Pop Idol in 2003. Tuisku placed third, but has become by far the most popular artist. He has released seven albums to date, but I have only been able to get my hands on his 6th – Hengitän – released in 2009 and placing #3 on the Finnish charts. Tuisku was also the first Finnish artist to release two albums on the same date with his New York  and Rovaniemi both in 2006 and placing #1 and #2 on the charts respectively. I have read that New York is a dance album while Rovaniemi a more traditional pop album. I can’t wait until I can get my hands on them! I can’t speak for his musical overall, but based on Hengitän I can say its very Euro-pop and it’s fabulous! Fun beats and catchy melodies! Many of the tracks are very electronic/dance. Good stuff.
