Rhythm Future featuring Jason Anick and Olli Soikkeli

Olli Soikkeli was born in Nurmes, Finland in 1991. He started playing guitar at age of 12. After a few years of playing Olli was introduced to the music of great Django Reinhardt and Gypsy Jazz has been Ollies main focus ever since. Soon Ollie was playing in jazz clubs and festivals all around Finland. Despite his young age he’s already played with stars such as Bucky Pizzarelli, Andreas Öberg, Paulus Schäfer, Antti Sarpila and Marian Petrescu. In 2011 The Finnish Fury recorded his first album “Trois Générations” with Hot Club de Finlande and Vitali Imereli and in 2012 he recorded his second album “Kouvola Junction” with Paulus Schäfer and Arnoud van den Berg. The upcoming winter is going to be The Finnish Fury’s busiest so far, with gigs in Europe.
