Siiri Nordin

Siiri Nordin is a singer, songwriter, actress from Helsinki Finland. Having made two chart topping albums with the now defunct Finnish rock band Killer she is continuing her music career as a solo artist.

Siiri Nordin is an artist well known for her previous work as the lead singer of the pop-group Killer, and the 2 extremely successful albums they recorded before splitting up in 2005. Both "Sickeningly Pretty & Unpleasantly Vain" and "Sure You Know How To Drive This Thing" topped the charts in Finland, but the second of the albums was the real breakthrough for the band. It included the gold selling smash-hit "Naughty Boy", the track that dominated the Finnish radio waves 2003, went number 1 in the MTV Nordic chart, and also aided the band into success in Scandinavia, Germany, Italy and Poland. After the active days of Killer Siiri returned to the top of the Finnish radio charts, now solo with the track Sydämeni osuman sai, a version of Gene Pitney's classic Something's gotten hold of my heart, recorded for the score of the film Helmiä ja Sikoja. After that she decided to take a break from writing music.

Now back as a solo artist Siiri has a new passion for writing music. Me too-album presents a unique, sunny blend of pop, folk and jazz with perceptive lyrics. Siiri' s band on both the album and the live performances is a genuine all-star line-up of Finnish popular music. Vocals are delivered both by Siiri and the long-time friend and collaborator Aleksandra Babitzin. Guitarist Jussi Jaakonaho is well known for playing with Jonna Tervomaa and J. Karjalainen as well as producing them and several other top domestic acts such as Lemonator and Ismo Alanko. Bass player Mitja Tuurala is generally acknowledged as one of the grooviest men around, and aside from Siiri's band he is currently playing for J. Karjalainen and Cool Sheiks as well. The drums are played by Siiri's brother Reino Nordin, known both as an actor in several chart-busting films, and his musical work with the top Finnish reggae-acts Kompostikopla and Ylivoima.
