Tarja - The Shadow Self

Ever since going solo some ten years ago Tarja Turunen, best known for her days as the singer in Nightwish, has released some four “rock albums”, a classical album as well as a Christmas themed classical album in Finnish. She did seem to have improved her accent as well as moving from a largely mezzo repertoire to using her voice more efficiently, but her solo work has been nowhere near as popular as that of her former band.
