The founder of the record label Eclipse Music is also a multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter. In his songs Tapio channels together the sensitivity of the great singer-songwriters with classic rock sounds, blues guitar and a touch of progressive rock styles. Educated in both music and the dramatic arts he is an expert storyteller both musically and lyrically.
Released in 2012, his debut album is a true solo effort with Ylinen playing all instruments himself.
In addition to his solo work Ylinen is a member of two other bands in the Eclipse Music artist roster: Juhani Valkama’s ensemble and folk rockers Tammela 33100. He also plays guitar with the Pink Floyd tribute band PULSE and works as a freelance radio host.
