The Rovaniemi-born singer Inga Söder has been on the scene already for ten years, and her CV includes collaborations with a number of frontline Finnish pop artists. However, her long-awaited solo debut, which leans heavily on the tradition of jazz, came out only last autumn.
“I wanted to wait until I knew exactly what I wanted to say”, says Söder. “The realisation that we cannot control life inspired me to write this album. We should trust ourselves to the stream of life; it will carry us and lead us where we belong. It this consoling message that I want to express with my music.

Rovaniemeläislähtöinen laulaja Inga Söder on esiintynyt yli vuosikymmenen useiden eturivin popartistien kanssa. Ensimmäinen soololevy odotutti itseään kuitenkin viime syksyyn saakka, ja Stream Carries onkin vahvasti kallellaan jazzin suuntaan.
”Halusin odottaa, jotta olisin täysin varma mitä musiikillani haluan sanoa”, kertoo laulaja-säveltäjä itse. ”Albumi sai alkunsa ajatuksesta, että emme voi kontrolloida elämää. Meidän pitäisi vain luottaa, että elämä vie meidät oikeisiin paikkoihin. Haluan musiikillani välittää ihmisille lohtua, että elämä kantaa ja virta tulee kuljettamaan oikeisiin paikkoihin.”.
