EMB_1

IMA-Nominee-Logo  Nomination in the Instrumental (mainly) Album Category  in The 14th Annual Independent Music Awards!

 

“It does indeed rock, an exuberant set of Esko’s characteristic intricately scampering, massively swung, ever-modulating tunes full of melodic corners and twists”
-Andrew Cronshaw, fRoots, UK

“It is fun, you can dance to, and there is a fantastic guy on the fiddle. Get the CD immediately, go and see him in concert, you wont regret it!”
-Folkworld.de

“…this album is louder, brasher, faster and more funked up than folk music ever was.”
-Alex Monaghan, Tradconnect, UK

“Eskos amped up fiddle has a Jimi Hendrix meets Jean-Luc Ponty ring.”
-Tony Hillier, Rhythms Magazine, AU

Rye Groove (2015)

“…this is a band not short of talent or imagination.”
-Fiona Talkington, Songlines

” Ruthlessly savvy, intensely voracious and generously masterful, Rye Groove kicks the cane out from under mild-mannered folk.”
-T.J. Nelson, World Music Central.org

“It’s a happy marriage of new and old, of seventies prog rock and traditional village music. The Epic Male Band is an inspiring bunch of young Finns who have no fear.”
-Waldemar Wallenius, RootsWorld
