FINLAND: ARTISTS YLE SHOULD CONSIDER FOR #UMK2019, vol.1

Now that YLE has confirmed internal choice for the artist for #UMK2019 and Eurovision song contest let's see what's cooking in the charts while they are making decisions....

 
Mikko Harju is a newcomer with already a string of radio hits and lots of very devoted fans. His songs have been streamed millions of times giving him already two platinum singles (Mä olen tässä and Taivas ei oo rajana) and one gold (Sinä riität). He just released his debut album and this is the title track, Sinä olet elämä
Antti Tuisku is propably YLE's and most fans' wet dream for Eurovision. The one and only real male pop star in Finland would certainly be a popular choice but how would he stand against European comparison? Hmmm... His latest Kumipuku is this summer's safe sex anthem. Check out also Hanuri, Mä hiihdän and Hyökyaalto
Olavi Uusivirta is singer, actor and tv-presenter known for his energetic live performances. He celebrates his 15th anniversary as recording artist this year. His latest Kesäyön uni fits perfectly the Finnish  summer mood. His duet Nuori ja kaunis with Finnish Swede Anna Järvinen is already a classic, as is his On niin helppoo olla onnellinen
Elias Kaskinen with his band Päivän Sankarit has released Puolet, Elias himself won last winter a variery show Tähdet tähdet proving he can hold any genre and stage (just Youtube his name and Tähdet tähdet and you will find euphoric gems like this :-) ) and is hotter than ever. Businesswise that is. He could be a wildcad to play....
