The Impersonators came into being after the demise of Finnish pop,rock band Carmen Gray in 2013 when Tommi Tikka, the other half of Carmen Gray’s songwriting team, joined forces with lyricist Antti Autio to write some new songs.
While Carmen Gray had recorded for major labels, such as Sony and Warner, the Impersonators’ story was going to be different from the get-go. With this particular group, Tikka wanted to have complete artistic control over the songs he recorded to avoid generic and sterile production typical for modern pop,rock.
For most of 2014, Tikka auditioned musicians for the new group. However, after three failed attempts to put together a lineup that did justice to the new songs, he decided to play all the parts himself. With that decision, the Impersonators became a group of two songwriters rather than a group of four or five musicians – with Antti in charge of the lyrics and Tommi in charge of the music.
The best way to describe the sound of the Impersonators is to call it sixties-flavored ”alternative pop,rock”. Their goal is to nurture and cultivate the creativity, spirit, and warmth that graced the pop records of yesteryears.
The Impersonators is very excited that their music is being played on 752.2 Radio.
