Poets of the Fall guitarist Ollie T releases own single Firefly
Listen to the rocking track here: https://lnk.to/bZ1Dh
Poets of the Fall guitarist Ollie T (Olli Tukiainen) continues his extravagant, sizzling, line of guitar music in the spirit of the 2014 released Poets of the Fall track Rogue. Ollie’s first single, Firefly, is aptly named after his first ever electric guitar, which he got at the age of 15 and which is still his most favourite guitar, tweaks and upgrades included.
Composing and releasing instrumental guitar music has been a lifelong dream of Ollie’s, and the new track, Firefly, is the perfect starting point on the path.
“I love working and playing with Poets of the Fall, but I also wanted to make more guitar music, and that goes a little bit outside of the Poets scope. Even if we did write & produce Rogue for the Jealous Gods album, we felt one instrumental guitar track would be enough for Poets, so I decided to make guitar music on my own.“, Ollie comments on his new project.
The guitarist is also not working alone on his new direction, as Firefly is an in-house production of Poets of the Fall’s Insomniac label. Featuring Poets of the Fall bassist Jani Snellman and drummer Jari Salminen, with Markus Captain Kaarlonen as producer and lead vocalist Marko Saaresto as art director.
Ollie has also brought director Miika Hakala to work on the Firefly music video. Watch the video: https://youtu.be/ayQS3CB9DIs
“So far we have no immediate touring plans for Ollie T, but it all depends on how much people will want to experience the music live. If they can fill up decent size venues and there’s a break from touring with the Poets, then sure, we’ll go on tour with Ollie T. In any case, I will be writing more guitar music whenever I get some time off from working with Poets of the Fall”, Ollie says.
