A flawless, ravishing voice from the Far North, Tuija Komi is a
consummate jazz artist of engaging warmth and first-rate musicianship whose vocal expressiveness runs the gamut from unbridled excitement and fierce passion, to exquisite tenderness and beyond. With her exceptional vocal range and sophisticated timbre, Komi achieves not only a smooth, consistent tone but also a perfectly balanced buildup of dramatic suspense: she can deliver compelling renditions of everything from blues and soul ballads to a sultry tango.
Komi’s musical eloquence is offset by her stage presence: with charm and natural exuberance that enchants her listeners, she carries her audience through a spectrum of moods – each conveyed with deep sincerity. Her sparkling personality and endearing temperament lend her performances a light-hearted atmosphere that delights all those who seek to indulge in music for the heart and soul. For Komi, every tone holds vital importance; she fills her music with poetry and vibrant dynamics. A blazing jewel on the music scene – with a vast potential she has yet to explore.
