Only 19 years old blues singer Ina Forsman is the rising star of the Finnish blues scene. When Ina was only 6 years old, she decided that she wants to become a singer. With determination & hard work she already toured at the age of 17. And after a mindblowing interpretation of Etta James`s song `All I could do is cry’ during the final of the TV show “Idols” at age 17. On that day everyone realized that a new blues star was born. After that, Finnish Blues harmonica legend Helge Tallqvist took her on the road for an education in the blues. Her blues journey was begun …

In 2014 Ina Forsman represented Finland at the European Blues Challenge in Riga this year. Her exceptional voice & her energetic stage performance touched the soul of Guy Verlinde. So both musicians decided to collaborate to tour the European mainland.
