Singer/songwriter Vesta rocketed to the top of Finnish language pop directly with her debut album. After a few years of maturing and several promising singles, the album really broke the bank: Lohtulauseita went to number in the Finnish albums chart and held the spot for three weeks. By now, it has already sold platinum, and as could be expected, Vesta was crowned Newcomer of the Year at the Emma Awards following her debut. As the country’s leading newspaper, Helsingin Sanomat, put it: ”Vesta is the best that Finnish mainstream pop has to offer.” Needless to say, Vesta’s upcoming second album is one of the most awaited releases in 2022.
