Jukka Tolonen short chat interview

I did a short chat interview with Jukka.

Hi Jukka! How are you these days?

Thank you. I am very well. I have complitely new life, because I have given my life to Jesus.

You recently released Juudan Leijona album. I would like if you could share a few words about it and what are some of the inspirations you had while producing and recording an album?

The reason why I wanted to make this kind of an album is that I want to spread gospel trough my music. I got familiar with these old psalms when I was in jail.

You released many solo albums and been a part of many legendary bands. Among them are Tasavallan Presidentti and Wigwam. Would you like to share with us some interesting experiences from some concerts or festivals you had back then?

Most impressing festival was with Tasavallan Presidentti band in reading in 1970's. we had in UK common tours with Tasavallan Presidentti and Wigwam in 1970's, and also reunion concerts with the both bands in Helsinki in early 2000.

Maybe a nice detail was that we had as an encore the Beatles song "a day in the life" together with both bands on the stage.

What are some future plans for you, Jukka?

I want to find different ways to spread the gospel through my music.

Thank you so much for your time and effort. Would you like to share anything else with us?

I wish all the best and god's blessing to all your readers!
