Free Spirit is the latest Scandinavian rock n’ roll import. Hailing from Finland this six piece is just beginning to make waves in the rock world as the winner of the Garage Countdown contest with their video “Until the Night”., which was viewed over 82 000 times. Mixing Celtic and folk music with Melodic/AOR, Free Spirit are carving out their own niche in the rock world with the release of their album “Pale Sister of Light”, the band’s first full length album.
Sami Alho (vocals), Pasi Koivumäki (drums), the original founding members started Free Spirit with the idea to bring melodies, harmonies and breathtaking songs back to rock music instead of being one of those bands where a group of angry men try to shout out that they have “the attitude”. The current line-up also consisting of Vesa Yli-Mäenpää (guitars), Sami Hämäläinen (bass), Marko Haapamäki (guitar), and Timo Alho (keyboards) has been together since 2006.
With such songs as Strangers, Far Away From Heaven, Preacher Man, and Moonlight Ride, “Pale Sister of Light” take you through the real world, dream and illusion, with a sound that is filled with melodies, harmonies, and tight musicianship as it brings you to the roots of nature and its mighty scenery.
