Johannes Laitila

Johannes Laitila (born 1984) is a singer-songwriter and dj from Helsinki, Finland, who strives for sincerity in everything. He writes indie pop with lyrics about life.

Laitila grew up in Järvenpää, Finland, in a home that originally had no instruments at all. When the parents realized Johannes's strong urge to play, a piano was brought home halfway through the 90's. That's when the songwriting started.

It was not until 2005 when Laitila started to publish demo versions of his songs on the internet. Since then, Laitila has not only published demos but has also sung, played guitar and piano and written songs in a band called The New Soviet. Then eventually, in the autumn of 2009, the thought of releasing a solo album grew big enough.

Feathers, Johannes Laitila's debut album, was released in August 2010. Johannes's second album Hearts Somewhere will be released in March 2012.
