OUTLANDERS is the new project of Finnish singer Tarja Turunen and German musician, songwriter, composer and producer Torsten Stenzel (Mike Oldfield, Joss Stone). OUTLANDERS born more than a decade ago when Tarja met Stenzel looking for a new, different field into her music. Tarja wanted to didn’t use her voice in a conventional soloist way, but instead, looking to create atmospheres and colours and to read something interesting for it.
The name OUTLANDERS was chosen as Tarja & Torsten had one thing in common: they are not living in the land they were born. Life, music and art had taken them different places and they become ‘outlanders’. The songs were recorded at Torsten’s studio in the island of Antigua in Caribbean, where he lives.
OUTLANDERS combines electronic music with Tarja’s rock, soft, as well as classical vocals, with the edge of electric and acoustic guitars. The three elements are a constant in all the songs and are equally important.
Both musicians wanted renowned guitarists to play on the songs, and they called the best: Marty Friedman, Joe Satriani, Trevor Rabin, Al Di Meola, Living Colour’s Vernon Reid, Jennifer Batten, Rata Blanca’s Walter Giardino, Ron Bumblefoot Thal and more.
