Ville Valo: HIM

Ville Hermanni Valo was born on November 22, 1976 in Helsinki. As one of the founding members of the Finnish band HIM, Valo is also a vocalist and songwriter. He first became interested in music when he was just three years old, playing the bongo dreams. His parents strongly supported and advocated his interest in music and frequently exposed him to music produced by various Finnish performers. When he was 9 he was able to attend the Pop and Jazz Conservatory in Helsinki. Here, he studied various types of music. It has been reported he worked for a time period in his father’s porn shop when he was a teenager before beginning to pursue a career in music full time. Over the years he belonged to different bands based in Helsinki including B.L.O.OD, Eloveena Boys and Kemoterapia.

In 1995 Valo formed HIM with former schoolmates Mikko Lindstrom and Mikko Heinrick. Originally the band was known as His Infernal Majesty; however, later the group’s name was shortened to the acronym HIM. When he first started out with HIM, Valo played bass. He switched to vocalist; however, when the band was unable to find anyone else to do the job for their first demo. After this, he became a full-time vocalist for the band in addition to playing drums and guitar. Their debut EP was released in 1996 while they began to draw fans across Finland. Even though their second album was not released until 2000, it proved to contain the right stuff, as it launched the band into stardom across Europe. Valo makes his home in Finland.
