Juhana Iivonen is a Finnish singer - songwriter. From 2009 he has been working with his solo material, recording and touring in Finland and other European countries as an indie singer - songwriter. His self-titled debut album was recorded in peaceful countryside studio with guitarist and producer Aki Haarala. This bunch of folky tunes leans much to 60`s and 70`s songwriter tradition also with analogue recording techniques but still including a lot modern flavors with some pop feeling in it.


2010 there was much co-working with Italian singer - songwriter Gipsy Rufina and the year ends with a beautiful warm sounding split record Madam Fortuna. Father of an idea and a producer/engineer/mixer of the record was Belgium Peter Acoustic who led the sessions at atmospheric project studio rebuilt in an old horse stable at Bourgerouth, Antwerpen.


During 2011 touring was more intensive and also new material started to bubbling under. 2012 Juhana gathered few musicians together to record a new album during the summer. Also this record was recorded by Peter Acoustic. This Native One album (released by Smiling Lizard Music) includes songs with full band and also acoustic live takes.


In 2014 two records were released, Live in Weimar, eight songs live recording recorded at club Kasseturm in Weimar by Arne Lakenmacher and also split EP with English blues musician and songwriter Tim Holehouse. Juhana dedicates this record to memory of his past very good friend Petri.


New project started in October 2015 when Juhana toured two weeks with guitarist Aki Haarala and sound engineer Peter Acoustic. Idea was to record new songs on the road, in concerts, soundchecks, hotelrooms, where ever. Result of this project is live record October In Hamburg, which includes 15 songs recorded in 24 hours in the hotel room in St.Pauli and at Music Star Club in Norderstedt.

Touring and recording goes on. Stay tuned.
