Open Arms, is founded in 2009 All begun from the band idea of Jose Valli as he saw Juha Palve performing in one youth centre in municipality of Virrat about one year ago.. As he heard that Juha Palve was supposed to move to Helsinki to perform his civil service, he felt the possibility of establishing an eager rock group in his knees. When in Helsinki, Juha noticed the talent of his old friend Joonas Junttila and later of two other musicians he just got to know, Erkka Lindstrom and Julius Hurri. The playing of this scattered group just amazingly worked out – also because of profound soil work of Jose as he wrote No Looking Back, a song to begin, and recorded it at his home studio before our first practice. For a huge surprise, when they started to jamming together, song ideas and harmonised playing was flowing like Volga River itself. They have a feeling that this could turn out to be more than they've ever believed! It has been wonderful for them notice how smoothly the things have gone further. E.g. After getting an idea of making their first demo album, an old friend of Jose, Perttu Kurttila, emerged and announced the willing of participating in the process with the first demo album. The first EP ''Reaching for the Soul'' is released and can be heard online www.myspace.com/openarmsmusic.
