we are very happy to hear that our supportive friends at Seattle's own KEXP have chosen Over The Rooftops to their Song Of The Day Podcast today Wednesday "Tuomo & Markus’ debut LP, Dead Circles, is a rich tapestry of acoustic orchestration, often subdued but never enervating or insignificant. Over the delightful melodies, the duo’s harmonies drift airily, easily recalling CSNY and Simon & Garfunkel with reverence." -Jim Beckmann, KEXP Download from the KEXP Blog: http://blog.kexp.org/2017/02/15/song-of-the-day-tuomo-markus-over-the-rooftops/ Subscribe to the KEXP Song of the Day podcast with iTunes: https://geo.itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/kexp-song-of-the-day/id121393815

“Tuomo & Markus is a new musical project from acclaimed Finnish soul artist Tuomo Prättälä and singer/songwriter Markus Nordenstreng of The Latebirds.
The two gentlemen gathered spontaneously at Wavelab Studio in Tucson AZ to record new music with their friends who included John Stirratt (Wilco, Autumn Defense), John Convertino, Joey Burns and Jakob Valenzuela from Calexico, Pat Sansone (Wilco, Autumn Defense), and Gary Louris (The Jayhawks) who also contributed one song for the album.
The duo’s debut album – which also features Finnish musicians Juho Viljanen, Miikka ‘McGyver’ Paatelainen and Jere Ijäs – will be released in Finland and the rest of Scandinavia on August 4 2016 (North America and Europe release in early 2017).
While their craftsmanship and timeless songs are rooted in the great American songbook and some of the harmonies may be reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel or Crosby, Stills & Nash, Tuomo & Markus are no retro act. Unusual arrangements and fearless use of both vintage and modern technology brings their sound to the 21st Century.”
