Jonna Enckell :: Renaissance Woman

Jonna Enckell

while researching for suggestions for an alternate Twilight soundtrack (see below) the name Jonna Enckell popped up a few times, and in different contexts :: as well as a solo composer and musician, Jo is also involved with a number of projects and a couple of bands.

Jonna started her musical career with piano lessons at the age of six, studying classical music :: she remembers her fascination with melodies and pianos early on. Today, Jo is a singer, pianist, songwriter and producer :: she collaborates with other musicians and also runs Silver Tree Records

alongside these activities, Jo shares lead vocal role with Swedish death metal band The Project Hate MCMXCIX :: the contrast between Jonna’s beautiful solo work (see Siren On) and the musical style of TPH (see theprojecthate) is stark :: yet through all the varied work, Jo’s voice is still clear and crisp, whether emotional and ethereal, or full force and growling

the producers of the Twilight films could do a lot worse than collaborate with Jonna on soundtracks and any other music related to the Twilight saga

    Dream Theater is an American progressive metal band formed in 1985 under the name Majesty by John Myung, John Petrucci and Mike Portnoy while they attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, before they dropped out to support the band. Though a number of lineup changes followed, the three original members remain today along with James LaBrie and Jordan Rudess.

    Dream Theater has become a successful progressive metal band, despite the drop in popularity of the genre since the mid-1970s. Although the band has had a few successful hits (notably “Pull Me Under” in the early 1990s, which received extensive MTV rotation), they have mostly stayed underground for their career.

    The band is well known for the technical proficiency of its instrumentalists, who have won many awards from music instruction magazines. Dream Theater’s members have collaborated with many other notable musicians. Guitarist John Petrucci has been named as the third player on the G3 tour six times, more than any other invited guitarist, following in the footsteps of Eric Johnson, Robert Fripp, and Yngwie Malmsteen.
