THE DAY I WAS BORN – Debut Album Coming in Autumn 2020


The Day I Was Born – the debut album of Iiris Tarnanen is inspired by the journey of life. Tarnanen’s compositions draw on themes from self-empathy to inner devils and new beginnings. Touching stories, shameless attitude and strong emotions are all communicated through the music, brought to life on this versatile album.

”For a long time I have been dreaming of recording my own album. We had a successful crowd funding campaign in May and June 2019 – and now we are able to make this dream come true! I thank all the donators and supporters who participated in the Mesenaatti campaign. With your help, I can fund the production of the album.”

The recordings of the album are held in Helsinki Music Center studio, beginning in 21 May 2019. The album will be released in Autumn 2020.
