I have been playing music for my whole life and I feel that it is the only thing that interests me more than anything. Already as a child, I noticed that music was the only thing, that I was really good at. At the age of twelve I formed my very first band and after that I have started a new band every time I got interested in a new genre of music. Because of that hunger for learning, I have experienced several kinds of musical productions and learned how to work in them. Now days I think that experience is the main reason for me being the so-called bandleader in almost every band I play in. At the age of 19 I quit my day job and started working as a full time musician.

One of my main projects  at the moment is my own jazz quartet Case Kämäräinen. This is my own quartet for my original music. We have now released 3 full albums and latest was Mystique From The North. I release new music almost yearly corporation with Eclipse Music.  Other active projects are New New Trio with my pianist friend  Tuomo Uusitalo, bassist Juuso Rinta, Savonmaa which presents my own region (Pohjois-Savo) originals arranged to jazz. Beside these projects I am also a very active in generating different kind of little projects and play gigs as a side man.

The most memorable projects that I have been in, are my lates release tour Finland and Usa. Also all the projects I have done with the well-known artists like Jukka Eskola, Kaisa Mäensivu, Kari Antila, Esa Pietilä sekä Sakari Kukko. Off course latest tour in USA with Case Kämäräinen 2022 and shows in Jazz ST. Louis with singer / basist Janet Evra this year 2023. My favourite festival at this point have been Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2018 and 2019 with my quartet Case Kämäräinen.

I’m currently working as a teacher at Kuopio Conservatory, Art High School, Lumit and Savonia University, teaching drums, ensembles, theory, music history and didactics.

I graduated as a Master of Music from Rhythmic Music Conservatory, Copenhagen in 2019. Over the years he’s been taught by many renown jazz drummers like John Riley, Kresten Osgood, Peter Bruun, Mika Kallio, Kendric Scott and Ruy López-Nussa.

In addition I’ve been leading workshops for dementia patients and disabled in different EU funded projects (TAKUULLA YHDESSÄ!,TAKUULLA!, HYVINVOINTIVOIMALA 2013-2019) that aim to develop well-being services which utilize cultural possibilities and promote well-being and health by means of art and culture.
