The offspring of a jazz vibraphonist father and the youngest of three siblings, all of whom went on to become professional actors or musicians, Janne Haavisto commenced his career as a drummer in the early 1980s and as a producer in the early 1990s. Throughout the years the arduous man has performed in groundbreaking groups, backed up high-profile songwriters and produced a variety of artists from the lofty fields of folklore to the trashy confines of underground pop. Haavisto has been awarded with the Emma Prize (the Finnish equivalent of the Grammy Award) for Best Production of the Year in 1992.
