Biography

Paves is a Finnish musician, who has worked as a singer, songwriter, bass player, keyboard player, drummer, guitarist and producer during his long career. As well as his solo career, Pave was a member of several bands.  He released his first solo album “Tanssivat kengät” in 1983. In the 1990s, Pave’s career went into a downfall. His records didn’t sell like they used to and a great misfortune was the last place at the Eurovision Song Contest 1992 with the song Yamma Yamma” ( The lyrics witheld 72 x (!) Yamma Yamma!) When his own solo career was quiet, Maijanen acted as the keyboard player on Dingo’s comeback gigs from 1993 to 1994. At the end of the 1990s, Pave came back to the limelights, when the group “Mestarit Areenalla”, consisting of him, Kirka, Hector and Pepe Willberg sold out at Finnish ice hockey halls and he also organised his own concert at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium, becoming the first ever Finnish artist to do so. Pave has also produced music for the television
