Woodwind-player Seppo "Paroni" Paakkunainen has had a long career as a session musician, band leader and arranger, with a stylistic spectrum encompassing rock, pop, jazz, folk and classical. On the progressive front he has been the driving force behind the progressive folk group Karelia, while his horns have graced the albums of, among others, Wigwam, Jukka Tolonen and Pekka Pohjola.

The fluid incorporation of elements from symphonic prog, space-rock and chamber-rock gives the overall sound a rich set of atmospheres; simultaneously, the old school jazz factor helps the band to keep things lyrical.
