Kasmir is based in Helsinki and performs R&B-influenced pop music. He made his breakthrough with his début album AMK Dropout in 2014; the single ‘Vadelmavene’ from that album has remained a summer hit in Finland for five years. He is a talented vocalist and songwriter who was given a Newcomer of the Year award at the Emma Gala in 2015 along with Song of the Year for ‘Vadelmavene’. His second studio album, Valmis [Ready], released in early 2018, went straight to no. 1 in the Finnish charts.
Kasmir has released three singles from his forthcoming album, created with producer duo OP Vuorinen and Leo Jupiter: ‘Valoo’, which streamed gold; the no. 2 single ‘Ihmisen haju’ released last spring; and most recently, ‘Punavuoreen’ in July.
Kasmir will be releasing his new album in the autumn, combined with an extensive tour of Finland starting with an album launch at Tavastia Club in Helsinki on Friday 25 October and continuing for almost two months across the country. The last gig will be at Club B52 in Ähtäri on Saturday 21 December.
