From escape-music.com:


Founded in 1997, Stala & So. is known for melodic rock tunes and a positive attitude.

The band has had the freedom to follow their own direction with their music and live performances while entertaining audiences and gathering lots of fans from all over the world along the way. The 70's and 80's glam rock bands, such as Sweet, T-Rex and Ziggy Stardust -era David Bowie, have had a strong influence on the band's image. Stala & So. is making music professionally and also having fun with it. The late Finnish comedian, Spede Pasanen, said: "The main thing is to have FUN!". This has been, and continues to be, the guideline for the band as well.

In the beginning of 2011 the band became familiar to the Finnish tv-viewing people by taking part in the Finnish Eurovision Song Contest. They made their way to the national finals. There is also one ESC 2006 winner in the band's line up. After the Eurovision show it was time for the Finnish release of their self-written, -recorded and -produced debut album "It Is So."

On October 24th the Japanese record company, King Records, released the It Is So. album in Japan and South-East Asia. The German-based music company, Music Buy Mail, released the album in Europe and South America on September. In the fall of 2011 the band recorded five new songs and those were released as an EP, titled "Gimme Five".

In 2013 Stala and so. Signed with Escape Music and released the CD “Play Another Round” which is exciting catchy, vibrant music that fits in well with the modern rock scene today. There is no doubt that this Finnish band excel in bouncy hard melodic rock with unforgettable chorus lines. Their new CD for 2015 is simply self-titled and it extends their music to another level, this new album recorded more towards the melodic hard rock with bigger hooks and massive choruses are remained etched in your mind after just one play.

Stala and So. are like a breath of fresh air that put a whole new perspective on today’s ever changing rock music scene.

I remember being quite surprised to find out I liked the last album. First song sounds cool, the second does not.
