J.P. Kallio / Bio


My name is J.P. Kallio.

I know, bit of a tongue twister.

I come from Finland, You know that country up there in the north stuck between Sweden and Russia, Country of thousand lakes that brought us Nokia, Moomins, Angry birds, Linux and quite few formula one drivers. Yes it gets cold there in winter, no we don’t have polar bears, Summers are warm, and the real Santa clause lives in the north of Finland. That’s all I have to say about that.

Back in 1996, only about a month after my 21st birthday, I moved over to Ireland and Dublin has been my home ever since. I’ve been playing guitar and writing songs since I was a little boy. I’ve been playing music full time for most of my adult life. At this point, it’s pretty much the only thing I know how to do. I’ve played in several bands over the years and at the moment I play guitar and sing in an Irish modern folk band called Sliotar and punk rock band called Boneyard bastards.

But my big passion is songwriting and to find out who I really am, you need to see me singing songs with my acoustic guitar. I sing songs about life. If you listen to my albums, I am sure you will hear your self in one of my songs :-)
