Tuomas >> biography

             "Born to the false world the wanderer
              Storyteller the pied piper
              On a quest for immortality
              Gathering a troop to find the fantasy"

Nightwish would not have existed without Tuomas Holopainen, its "genius" and creative spirit. Not only a brilliant composer and keyboard player, but moreover a poet from the great romantics' family, "Oceansoul"/"The Dreamer" captivates through the sensitiveness and complexity of his lyrics, taking us back to long forgotten ages and ideals: the childlike innocence, the purity of love, the joy of friendship and the call of the inner path.
