Hello there! I'm Samu. I'm a songwriter for Tantalize. I collaborate with artists all over the world. I am working Tantalize to be a touring band. A real band.

Listen to the songs by Tantalize here on Soundbetter to get the idea what I can offer.
What I can offer is:

Guitars:
- solid rock/metal rhythm guitars
- lead guitars
- guitar solos

Piano & synthesizer:
- Simple synth leads / pads
- Simple pianos

I love creating catchy melodies, big choruses & accompany everything together for compact, heavy songs. Although, I also do some very mellow songs too. I don't do super fast shredding.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    I had a beautiful experience working with Samu and mastering his music. His mix was excellent so the mastering process was a breeze. Samu communicated his needs clearly and courteously. A real professional. I hope to be working for him again someday.

    Just finished mixing another song for Samu. It's a pleasure to work with him. He knows what he wants, clearly explains what to do and what to achieve. Files he provided are all performed and recorded very well. No need for extra editing.
    I'm looking forward to more songs from Samu. One of the best clients I worked with.

Interview with Samu Puuronen

How would you describe your style?
I reckon my music is pretty melodic, ranging from very soft to heavy metal.
Analog or digital and why?
Digital for now. Because it's affordable & easy to use. I am a songwriter, first and foremost. I appreciate things that work smoothly.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I first started playing piano when I was 7. I played classical music for years. When I was 15 I picked up an electric guitar. Since then I've been creating my own music.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
There's a long list of artists I admire. Working with those could be intimidating. But to name few: Tim Finn, Neil Finn, Explosions in the Sky & some filmmakers.
Can you share one music production tip?
Music is a passion, a love. Find what you love doing & keep working on it. More than anything, be patient.
Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
Tantalize is my musical journey. I am proud to have listened to my own voice & what I love to do. The journey is only in the beginning.
What are you working on at the moment?
New Tantalize songs. I'm also thinking the next move with my musical path. To find a live band to play with from somewhere in the world would be so nice. I'd also be willing to move for my music.
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Yes! Tyson Yen is a great vocalist from L.A.! You should check his profile out here on Soundbetter. Also, Igor Korzhov is a fantastic mixing engineer. Also here on Soundbetter.
What type of music do you usually work on?
It ranges from hard rock/heavy metal to classical. As long as I love the music and the song, it doesn't matter what the genre is. It never has mattered, it never will.
What's your strongest skill?
Creating songs for my band Tantalize. I compose, write lyrics, play guitar, keys & sometimes bass.
Tell us about your studio setup.
Focusrite audio interface, ESP Eclipse II Evertune, Korg synthesizer & Roland digital piano
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Tuomas Holopainen, Nightwish, Ghost, Rammstein, Mastodon, In Flames, HIM, Tim Finn, Neil Finn, Crowded House, Howard Shore, Hans Zimmer, Eminem
