Jartse Tuominen
Jartse Tuominen
Finnish guitar wizard, Jartse Tuominen is an exceptionally talented Finnish musician, ingenious composer and a producer with devotion and style. His band, Jartse Tuominen Group, is formed of the best Finnish musicians. Jartse´s music is instrumental rock with a jazzy flavor. "How to describe his music? Let´s assume that Billy Cobham, Steve Gadd, Al Di Meola, Steve Vai, Steve Morse, Billy Sheehan and Jaco Pastorius were in the audience at a Jartse Tuominen gig. They would certainly recognize aspects of their own music, but they would not be able to keep their butts on the bench." (Guitar Nine News)
Jartse Tuominen released his fifth solo album “Untold Stories” in Europe, USA, Canada & Japan on spring 2016. Time to Go single climbed to #1 on Hittracks Top100 chart in Netherlands for two weeks and the album has been on playlists on many international radios. Untold Stories has been nominated as ”Top Albums of the year 2016” in Germany.

Jartse has made five solo albums so far. He has also worked on over 100 CD's as a musician, composer or producer. He has also made music for movies, TV-programs and commercials. Two of his soundtracks have reached gold record status.
