A dozen years ago, New York singer Nicole Willis lit the sky of Finnish soul. Last autumn she and UMO released the album My Name Is Nicole Willis to critical acclaim and now it is time to throw a launch party!

The three launch concerts are played at Vuotalo, at Sellosali and at Korjaamo. In addition to the songs of the album, the conductor Mikko Hassinen has also arranged other songs chosen and performed by Willis.

The music of Brooklyn-born Nicole Willis has been described an urban fusion of soul, jazz and funk. As a creative soul, she is inclined to break down traditional barriers. She is constantly searching for new sources of inspiration to make her music novel and exciting. Willis is best known from her collaborations with The Soul Investigators and Jimi Tenor.

“[On the album My Name Is Nicole Willis] UMO creates a cinematic atmosphere. It evokes the gloss of the metropolitan skyscrapers in the movies of the 1970s.” – Helsingin Sanomat
