"Through the Eyes of Others" is Petteri Sariola's impressions of some of his favorite songs. With only acoustic guitar and vocals, Sariola is a one-man wrecking crew, using his extended guitar techniques and guitar percussion to hold down all the band parts and then some.
Petteri Sariola (1984) is a phenomenon, mostly known for his percussive approach on the acoustic guitar. He picked it up at the age of 7 but after countless non-functional bands he ended up developing a virtuosic style of his own, covering all the sounds of a full band on an acoustic guitar while singing his heart out. No loops, no backing tracks. Sariola has played almost a thousand shows, toured solo around Europe, USA and Japan and reached millions of viewers on YouTube.
Sariola's solo albums "Silence!", "Phases" and Dead Sirius 3000's "Get Sirius" have all been released in Europe and they are available in Japan by King Records. His latest solo album "Through The Eyes Of Others" is released by both King Records and the American CandyRat Records, the most notable label specialized in fingerstyle guitar music.
He has been awarded with Nokia Young Talent scholarship, Honorary Prize in the Helsinki Funk Awards, City Magazine Guitarist of the year and as the cover article of Akustik Gitarre, the biggest acoustic guitar magazine of Europe.
