Shifting between London and Finland, Essi is comfortable moving from classical to non classical circles. She is alumni from the Royal College of Music and plays with Jaakko Mäkelä's award winning violin owned by the Finnish Cultural Foundation.

She has performed in the Buckingham Palace, the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Cadogan Hall, Balcony TV and toured Festivals around UK with Hiphopera band Josephine and the Artizans. With her duo Essi has been performing in England, Scotland, Finland, Mexico and Italy.

In 2016 Essi took part to the orchestra academy Southbank Sinfonia in London, and since September she has been playing in Kymi Sinfonietta in Finland. As her day job she enjoys playing in the orchestra but her free time she spends collaborating with different artists and shifting through different genres.
