Their music is characterized by Pia's ethereal lead vocals and Joni's virtuoso guitar stylings as they perform traditional ballads from the Finnish and Scandinavian folk traditions. They have toured extensively in Europe, New Zealand, and the United States and their self-titled first album came out in early 2013.
