His music is often blues influenced. Lyrical themes vary from childhood memories (like “Verinen Mies” or “Paskahousua”) to varyingly obscure tales of everyday life. “Tulpaani ja Sadepisara”, for example, tells a tale of a tulip on the verge of dying of thirst. Karjalainen has created a sort of alter ego which he refers to as “Laulumies”, the singer.
His latest album Lännen-Jukka features himself alone with a banjo and sometimes a guitar, singing with a rough blues voice. The songs are mostly traditional (Finnish-)American folk songs.
