Tuomari Nurmio is the artist name of Hannu Nurmio (b. 1950 in Helsinki), a Finnish rock singer and songwriter. Since his debut album, Nurmio has been regarded as one of the most original Finnish singer-songwriters. His lyrics are filled with peculiar and arresting metaphors and expressions, some of which have made their way into the vernacular Finnish language. Especially the first four albums are now seen as classic works.
