We caught up with Mikko Joensuu to find out a little more about what does and doesn’t make him tick in the run up to Nordic music event Ja Ja Ja.

Mikko Joensuu returned last year with the final in a tryptich of releases, ‘Amen 3’. The Finnish singer- songwriter’s 2017 release was more than the follow-up to the critically acclaimed ‘Amen 1’ and ‘Amen 2:’ it was the final chapter in the story begun by its predecessors. ‘Amen 3’ was integral to the whole picture whilst still standing on its own.

Now Mikko Joensuu returns to the stage with an upcoming appearance at Ja Ja Ja, a celebration of Nordic music, taking place at The Lexington on 25th October 2018. Mikko will appear alongside Jesper Jenset and La Lusid.
