Ticketfly Backstage Amplifier says
Tuomo & Markus is a new musical project from acclaimed Finnish soul artist Tuomo Prättälä and singer/songwriter Markus Nordenstreng of The Latebirds.

The two gentlemen gathered spontaneously at Wavelab Studio in Tucson AZ to record new music with their friends who included John Stirratt (Wilco, Autumn Defense), John Convertino, Joey Burns and Jakob Valenzuela from Calexico, Pat Sansone (Wilco, Autumn Defense), and Gary Louris (The Jayhawks) who also contributed one song for the album.

The duo’s debut album ‘Dead Circles’ – which also features Finnish musicians Juho Viljanen, Miikka ‘McGyver’ Paatelainen and Jere Ijäs – was released in Finland and the rest of Scandinavia on August 4 2016 (North America and Europe release due in 2017).

While their craftsmanship and timeless songs are rooted in the great American songbook and some of the harmonies may be reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel or Crosby, Stills & Nash, Tuomo & Markus are no retro act. Unusual arrangements and fearless use of both vintage and modern technology brings their sound to the 21st Century.

With the recent addition of Finnish jazz trumpet sensation Verneri Pohjola to their live lineup Tuomo & Markus’ jazz and psychedelic influences have become more and more evident at their ambitious live shows.
