Antero Lindgren playing live on Friday!

CLUB O’GAEA PRESENTS:

Antero Lindgren solo!

Antero Lindgren had been working long and hard on getting his first album ready and out and it was all rewarded on February 2012 when the debut, “Mother” was finally out and getting raving reviews and being called the best album of the year. “Antero’s music is about country, folk, AOR, echoes from tracks and instrumental rock. The drums are played to stadiums and the synthesised sound carpets are the gelatinous and radiant medium against which Lindgren’s warm baritone vibrates. Above it all you notice the strong and honest lyrics, which take you where you would not dare go yourself.
His second album Talking with the Dead (2013) is similar in texture as the first album, but has been tailor-made for long drives in the country side watching the emptying cities and the never-ending fields as you pass by.
With the albums Mother and Talking with the Dead while armed with a reputation as a memorable live act, Lindgren is ready to claim the title as the most promising artist in Finland, willing to take a step further and become an artist noticed outside of the Finnish borders.”
