Bob Dylan takes a Sentimental Journey through some old classics — but they’re not just his... by SIMON GAGE
...There’ll be more straight-down-the-line pop with a little twist from X Factor finalist Saara Aalto (which is a whole lot of ‘a’s for one artist) at the very bijou Hippodrome Casino in London tonight. The Finnish runner-up bagged herself a contract with Sony and has gone for a sound that touches on the likes of Tori Amos and Björk, but with big diva vocals as and when the situation demands.
Eden was happy that Saara sang her song 'Big Dreams and Dirty Fingernails' in Hippodrome and Hartwall arena (check out the first comment line below). Eden's and Saara's photo in the second comment line.
X FACTOR 2016 – JONESANDYOU STANDS WITH SAARA AALTO!
Saara Aalto is quickly becoming the European music phenomena of 2016. Her unexpected succes story in the british X Factor has raised headlines in the UK and electrified the whole Finnish nation.
The succes alone is a remarkable feat and a sure launching pad for a great career for her, and it isn’t even the most noteworthy aspect of this story. To me the most inspiring themes are Saara’s perseverance and the ‘out of the box’ thinking she has demonstrated. Not only did she figure out that just because no one has applied for the British X-Factor from Finland before it does not mean it can’t or shouldn’t be done – it simply meant no one had thought of it before....
Saara says that in UKis it is more excotic coming from small northern Oulunsalo than from Helsinki. New single being worked on without rushing and sloppily throwing things together, should be out in the summer. She is excited about the gig in Oulu and has received a lot of support from people in Oulu area.
Saara: "Next week to Oulu! Last time party at the market square, now totally something else." I guess there still are tickets left. Sadly the concert with Oulu big band is on Thursday, so it's difficult to come from Southern Finland because of work. Those who are going to Saara's gig, ENJOY! 🎤🎶
