ONEVIOLIN is a new artist breaking boundaries between different music genres and preconceptions with his internationally new concept - making cover-versions from global hit-songs using sounds from only one violin. Everything from the drums to the melody is created entirely with the artist's violin.
The person behind ONEVIOLIN is Pekka Niemi, a 29 year old Finnish violinist who studied in London at the Royal College of Music, one of the worlds most prestigious conservatoires. Since a young age he has been working internationally as a violinist, songwriter and string producer. In 2019 he performed alongside the biggest band in Finland, JVG, at Ruisrock and Blockfest music festivals.
In the spring of 2020 ONEVIOLIN took part in Finland's Got Talent finishing as the runner-up in the Finals. His performance in the Finals was a mashup of the biggest Finnish hits and consisted of a breathtaking 1,500 tracks of violin. Later in the summer he had his first solo festival performances at Aura Fest and Vaasa Festival.
