Keränen's music is brilliant vocal jazz of creeping, waiting and sudden movement.

Jazz vocalist and composer Riikka Keränen (b. 1988) is one of the noteworthy and distinctive jazz artists of the vibrant Finnish music scene. Her music combines elements of post-bop jazz with tonalities and sensibilities of a more pop-oriented approach.
On her debut album 'A Vision of a Garden', released by the Flame Jazz Records in 2022, Keränen fuses jazz aesthetic and improvisation with evocative stories.
Keränen holds a Master's Degree in Music majoring in jazz performance.
