ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Irina Bjorklund...

-... wrote her first song at age 7 - the rough translation from the swedish name "Om Hundarna och Kattorna kan, sa kan Jag" would be "If the Dogs and the Cats can do it, so can I". The song had 11 verses.

-... is more known as an actress from Europe - but lives in Los Angeles since 1999, and has 7 american indies hitting the festival circuit simultaneously in 2006.

-... saw the french movie "Delicatessen" at the age of 16, and decided that she would make the Musical Saw her pension plan, just in case the acting thing wouldn't work out...

-... finally got the Saw she had dreamt of for her birthday a few years back, learned how to play it, and has ever since been incorporating it in her song writing and performance.

-... grew up in Finland, France and Sweden, and uses the languages of each country as she writes and performs, along with english and russian.

-... collaborated with composer Peter Fox on the soundtrack of the feature "Red is the Color of..." (in which she also plays the lead) in 2004. The pair decided to continue their collaboration, and have now successfully been performing live in LA, and are releasing their first CD "Oh l'Amour" through CDBaby - an ode to Irina's native Finland, and her much beloved France - the CD booklet has a mystical storyline, taking You on a journey from one song to another, guiding You through the landscapes of Karelia on the russian border to a smokey late night bar with all it's characters in Montmartre in Paris.....

AWESOME atmospheric music in different languages
AWESOME atmospheric music in different languages, can it be nation wide more than this? Probably not! Let seen when I can hear these lovely songs at live? ;-)

Rampe Toivonen

Beautiful songs performed by a multitalent artist with four languages
The feeling is fantastic because of the extraordinary, skillfully played instruments including Irina's voice.

Dreamy and excellent
This is something that I love to hear - interesting songs, arrangements and performances. Irina is wonderful !

David Udo

Nordic Melancholy at its best !
Wonderful arranged music coming out of the deep nordic forests and lakes, which opens your hearts. Voice and instruments in harmony. You can smell and feel the sweat and see the moustaches of the finnish loggers who once invented the music saw. Just Great!

Kiitos/Thank you Irina
Näin sinut Emma gaala TV lähetyksessä esittämässä Leroy kappaleen, se jäi soimaan päähäni ja "tila" jatkui vielä seuraavana ja sitä seuraavana päivänä. Levy oli pakko tilata, eikä sitten pettyä tarvinnutkaan muistakaan kappaleista. Kiitos ihanasta musiikista, olet hurmaava esiintyjä.

So inspiring
The music and words of Oh l'Amour have infused my soul. The opening waltz of Natascha's Bee Song in Russian sets the stage. The saw and voice opening of Names in the Stars transfix me, I cannot drive and listen to it without fear of driving off the road. Casse-moi melts my heart every time I hear it. Haunting tunes, lives imagined, I will make sure all these songs are heard.

mysterious, haunting, beautiful...and fun!
Beautiful music in tasteful package. Very international, many languages, many instruments, the voice and the saw!!!
Melancholy tunes from the Finnish forests and french joie de vivre. More please!
