With her debut EP Pink GEA received praise by many leading indie music publications. She was named among the best ethereal female vocalists in the world by Brutal Resonance, and the best up and coming Finnish artist by Sensible Reason.
GEA’s music combines Finnish traditional folk music and instruments with ambient minimal electronic sound, inspired by extreme light and darkness of Nordics. GEA’s sound is described to be light and airy, full of magic and mystery. Her songs are like the landscape of the singer-songwriters’ native Finland; cool, cascading, vibrant and serene.
GEA’s music video “Alone” has been selected on several film festivals, and will be screened in New York as part of WILLiFEST September 16th and WNY Film, Art and Music Event (FAME) on September 17th. It has been also selected to US Hollywood Int’l Golden Film Award’s. Her music video Pink has been selected on Social Machinery Film Festival, and will be screened on “Canada Culture Days” – Toronto City September 29-30 and 1 October.
