Tarja Turunen to Chaoszine: “I am very glad the stroke I suffered in 2018 didn’t leave any marks to me”

Author Arto Mäenpää - 29.10.2021

Rocket 88 will be releasing today “Singing In My Blood”, the first book by former Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen.

Written and compiled over the past year of lockdown, Tarja has searched through scores of photos and memories to create a big, deluxe book about her life in music. There are contributions from friends and colleagues who’ve played a part in her music on stage, in the studio and at home, alongside lots of previously unseen intimate photos from childhood to the present day.

“Singing is in my blood. Ever since I was a little girl, I have enjoyed performing … but not being able to be on stage in 2020, I spent a lot of time looking through photo albums, seeing all those happy scenes of childhood, growing up and making music, getting to know my fans and travel the world recording and performing, having fun; those memories fill this book.

“In ‘Singing In My Blood’, I tell my story about making music and share lots of personal photos. It’s a big, 200-plus-page hardback filled with photographs that comes in two, deluxe versions.”
