After a short break, Olli decided to be creative and musically active again and is now creating a new dimension with his keyboard sounds at papergrass.
Olli is a keyboard player for whom the different sounds are very important in order to give the music new colors. It is important to him to serve the song and to create interesting melodic spheres.
