Petteri Sariola (1984) is a fingerstyle virtuoso. He's known for his fierce live performances, beautiful songwriting and percussive approach on the acoustic guitar. He picked it up at the age of 7 but after countless non-functional bands he ended up developing a style of his own, covering all the sounds of a full band on an acoustic guitar while singing his heart out. No loops, no backing tracks. Sariola has released 4 solo albums, played almost a thousand shows touring solo around Europe, USA and Japan, and reached millions of viewers on YouTube.
He has opened concerts for Tori Amos (USA), Andy McKee (USA) and Rodrigo Y Gabriela (MEX), and collaborated with Jon Gomm (UK), Mike Dawes (UK), Doug Wimbish (Madonna, Living Colour), Osmo Ikonen (Sunrise Avenue), Felix Zenger (James Brown, N.E.R.D.), just to mention a few.
