THE DAY I WAS BORN – Debut Album



Each day we are born again: We breathe in, we lean towards and take a step. We may tumble and fall, but then we rise up in one way or another, and take a new breath.

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.”
