Erki Pärnoja : Himmelbjerget Short Info

Erki Pärnoja : Himmelbjerget (EST/DK/SWE)

Songwriter and guitarist Erki Pärnoja, mostly known from the estonian group Ewert and The Two Dragons, released his first solo EP “Himmelbjerget” in late 2015. After being actively involved in the Estonian music scene for almost 15 years as guitarist, songwriter and producer, he finally started writing and recording under his own name. Whilst recording guitars, bass and sythesizers on his own in a tiny rehearsal room in the creative district of Tallinn, he decided to involve a few more musicians and make a long distance recording out of it. Collaborating with danish drummer Ulrik Ording and swedish producer/keyboardist Filip Leyman (both band members and the latter also producer of critically acclaimed singer Anna von Hausswolff) the EP turned out to be something often described as “music for a film that doesnt exist” or “scandinavian sounding western music”. 
Organically evolving wide dreamy soundscapes, a distinctive guitar sound, a five-piece dynamic live band, loads of synths and loads of reverb.
Within less than a year he has played at the most influential festivals in Estonia, Jazzkaar and Tallinn Music Week among others and also at the biggest music event in the Baltics - Positivus Festival.
The EP was well received in Estonia: "It seems like this music is not from our time, nor is it from the future or the past. It is rather from a parallel time, that is purer, more complete, more comprehensive, more meaningful and aspiring than the time we live in now…” 
Erki is currently working on his next album which will be out later this year.
