Vetten Äpärät / Bio

In November 2006, Sami Ferm started to look for other like-minded people, who were interested in playing music, as a school project from his new school, Herttoniemi high school. The people in the school weren't very musical so everything had to be started from scratch. Sami himself had played the guitar during the entire upper secondary school. Antti Ruokonen, who had just started playing guitar, began to play with Sami, but it soon became clear that getting a drummer would be inevitable. Anton Nisonen had hardly touched any instrument, when Sami told him to come to play the drums. For Sami the choice was almost fortuitous, because he knew Anton only vaguely by name. However, Sami bought him his first drumsticks, and that's how it started. Ensemble playing lasted for about 7 months, when Antti left the gang due to lack of own interest. Sami and Anton continued with a new rehearsal space in church premises in Roihuvuori. The band was borned at that time in the spring of 2007. After various configurations a guitarist, Leo Lemmetty, joined the band in the early autumn of 2009, and the composition of the band began to stabilize. A couple of months later, the band got a new bass player, Eelis Aaltonen, who was Leo's acquaintance. At that time the band began to give up playing covers and started to practice its own production. In the summer of 2010, the band got a regular keyboard player, Irene Penttonen. The final formation was ready at last.
