Slim´s eagerly awaited album Bad Intention coming out this summer!
Bad Intention will be released in July 2016. Help me to reach this goal to share my music with the world. Your support matters and will be greatly appreciated!
My name is Jarmo “Slim” Puhakka and I´m a blues guitarist, composer, lyricist and arranger. Born and raised in Finland´s Lapland, I picked up my first guitar at the tender age of 12. I´ve been fronting bands ever since, always leaning musically towards blues, soul, funk and rock.
New album Bad Intention:
My sophomore set, Bad Intention is a collection of ten original tunes. Breaking new ground sonically, I hope it will raise some hell and interest among blues community all over! A number of true veterans of the Lappish blues fraternity provided a solid backup to my highly personal songs. The icing on the cake are the venerable American singers, Tad Robinson from Indianapolis and Atlanta´s own Andrew Black, who lent their amazing singing chops to my project. All the tracks for the album are already recorded and in a post-production stage. With a little twiddling and fine-tuning with the knobs, album will be ready for printing.
Fundraiser Goal: 6000€
Minimum goal: 3500€
The listed minimum goal is 3,500€. By hitting this target goal, funds are used for mixing and mastering the album, artwork/packaging and mass duplication of cd-copies of the album.
The ultimate goal is to reach 6000€, which also enables printing vinyl copies (limited edition 500 copies) with beautiful, gatefold covers and heavy vinyl (please allow 3-6 months delivery times due to pressing plants queues)! And if for some reason this campaign falls short, you´ll receive your money back automatically.
Your contribution on this fundraising campaign is vital to the completion of my new album. With a little push from you guys, it will be released in July 2016. Help me to reach this goal to share my music with the world. Your support matters and will be greatly appreciated!

How I got here:
My debut album, Inner Blues, was released in 2012 and it was a huge success! The album was voted “The Best Blues Album Of The Year 2012” in Finland in two major polls. The readers and critics of the world´s oldest continuously published blues magazine, Finnish Blues News, appraised it. The listeners of YLE Radio Suomi´s weekly blues show “Bluesministeri” followed suit! Reviewers of a variety of blues publications the world over raved about the album in unison.
Just like Inner Blues cd, Bad Intention has that authentic sound and feel of an old recording. The new set of songs were again captured on tape using old analogue recording equipment in a rustic cottage, Villa Willamo in the Arctic Circle, Rovaniemi. How blue can you get?
Please share this on Facebook and other social media platforms. Get the word out to everyone you know who enjoys listening to blues, R&B, funk, soul, polka or any type of music, or is a supporter of the arts.
