I am Elisa Laiho, a Finnish singer-songwriter and pianist. I have graduated from the Sibelius Academy (Helsinki, Finland) in 2005.
At the moment I'm working with a solo album which will be released in Feb 2019. The first single "Kaunista valoa" will be released in Oct 2018.
I perform solo and with other musicians in Elisa Laiho Ensemble which is a group of alternating musicians. Another group of mine is called Elisa Laiho Acoustic Flow. My musical repertoire includes numerous songs that I have composed as well as many well-known jazz and pop songs.
I find it enjoyable to compose music also for other artists. In addition to my own lyrics I am always looking for interesting poems/lyrics to work with. I have composed a fair amount of poetry from many different writers such as Edith Södergran, Tommy Tabermann, W.B. Yeats and Alice Oswald.
