ABOUT

STINA KOISTINEN is a Finnish artist and music maker from Helsinki city. She is known for her dynamic voice and intriguing music making skills.

“The Teosto Award winning singer-songwriter Stina Koistinen is one of the strongest voices in the Finnish music scene, strong yet fragile, timeless yet completely in this time and even in the future, unfortunately a rare kind of an artist in contemporary Finland.” (Aleksi Pahkala, Päivän Biisit)

 

“…when she hits the high notes towards the end the rawness and richness together are emotionally overwhelming. She simply has the knack of doing that.” (God Is In The TV Zine)

 

“When she hits the high notes towards the end the rawness and richness together are emotionally overwhelming. She simply has the knack of doing that.” (Nordic Music Review)

 

“Immediately the tone of the stately piano will hit you, melancholy and deliberate, and that throws all the intention on to those vocals, which are just phenomenal, intoxicatingly powerful but almost fragile at times, they soar to an extraordinary level, delivering a beautiful cascading melody that climaxes and fades. ‘Kun Viimein Saavuit’ is a simply stunning song.” (Nordic Music Review)

 

“…but I can easily sense the intensity of the feeling – and that power will lift this song high.” (Desibeli)

 

"I’m really quite taken with this hauntingly beautiful piece" (SWIT)
