Biography

Seacrest Oy label released the Progressive Construction on 6th August 2018. It's the ninth album from the Strandberg Project.

Strandberg Project, formed in 1995 along their debut At The Music Box, released their ninth album, Progressive Construction, in August 2018. The band has released its eight earlier albums with variable ensembles but one of the founding members, guitarist Sami Virtanen, has been around since the beginning.

Inspiration for the album the band has drawn from 1970s progressive music from bands such as Emerson Lake & Palmer, Rush and Wigwam without forgetting funk and jazz. The band’s music is tightly in present and their own sound can be heard clearly on the new album.

The idea of Strandberg Project has been to invite musicians and friends from all around the world to join forces and create new, interesting music together and get fresh viewpoints to compositions.
