“I get the memories, the feelings and emotions in Finland, then I go to LA and finish the stories in a good way. If I stayed in Finland, then I’d just write stories that don’t go well. […] I can have a deep and crazy story from Finland, then LA just gives it another perspective.”
Raised in Kuopio, Finland, Alma (real name Alma-Sofia Miettinen) had a completely contrasting upbringing to the lifestyle she’s now experiencing in LA. With a population of just 117,842 compared to the Golden State’s 3.976 million, there’s a clear culture clash.“I don’t want to have an album that is about me going to VIPs and doing shots with Miley Cyrus! I want it to be real, what I’m really doing when I’m home, about my childhood experiences.”
Alma has been working on her new debut album for a while now, but has revealed it is 60-70% complete, meaning there’ll definitely be loads of new material for UK fans to hear at RiZE this August!
