fireworks-high-resOk folks, it’s time to start wrapping up for the holidays!

It has been a truly amazing year..here’s a little summary. Our team has, altogether during the year, written or co-written 45 singles with 31 different artists in Finland, Germany, Korea and the US! 8 of the singles have gone Gold and 2 Platinum. 6 albums containing our songs have been certified Gold with one of them reaching triple Platinum. 4 of our songs are in Spotify Top 5 for the year and airplay for our songs has been amazing. We also reached Billboard #5 with a song on the Pentatonix’s EP, co-written by Kasmir, whose solo career in Finland got an almost unprecedentedly great start and he has become one of the most popular artists in Finland in less than a year. On top of these, as a publishing company, we were awarded the Publisher of the Year Award 2014.

These numbers and successes are an amazing achievement and we would like to offer huge congratulations and thank you to our writers and producers as well as to the artists, labels and managements we have the privilege of working with! Thank you, brilliant work!

sandhja

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.
