Elements Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Sandja, an artist-songwriter, who recently released her debut album “Gold” through Sony Music Finland. Her singles “Gold” and “Hold Me” have been on heavy rotation on Finnish radio this summer. Sandhja is signed to Elements through a co-publishing deal with Volume Productions.
“We were introduced to Sandhja through her label when we tried to pitch songs for her. She turned out to be a great songwriter herself, and together with her mentor, Pete Matara at Volume Productions, she eventually wrote much of the album herself. “Gold” is a wonderful record with intriguing storytelling and soulful, rootsy touch to her music. We really look forward getting to work spreading Sandhja’s music to the World.” says Tommi Tuomainen, CEO of Elements Music Oy.
