He has been called “one of Finland’s best kept secrets”, the highly acclaimed guitarist and composer Mathias Sandberg is one of the hardest working jazz musicians in the country. He has studied at Manhattan School of Music in New York and Berklee College of Music in Boston and worked with artists such as Georg Riedel, Pierre Swärd, Peter Asplund, Nick Mancini, Jukka Eskola, Teppo Mäkynen and Manuel Dunkel. Sandberg plays a hundred or so concerts a year and has toured both Europe and the United States.

Mathias Sandberg’s debut solo album The Doctor (2020) has received both huge critical review and airplay on jazz radio stations in Europe, United States, South America, Asia and Australia. Sandberg’s highly anticipated new trio album The Captain was released in March 2023, followed by a 50-date nationwide tour. The album showcases his unique blend of hard swingin’, groovy and soulful jazz with strong melodic writing, rhythmically playful improvisation and a delightful, almost telepathic interplay between the three.

”This is an excellent album… swings from start to finish” (Jazz Journal, UK)

yksi Suomen parhaiten varjelluista salaisuuksista. Todellakin!” (Karjalainen)

”Mathias Sandberg trio tekee todellista jazzlähetystyötä intiimillä otteella koko Suomeen.” (SuomiJazz)
