    Janne Johannes Puurtinen, better known as Emerson Burton, is the current keyboard-player in the Finnish rock band, HIM. He was born 17 October 1974, in Helsinki. Burton made his second debut as a temporary member of the band at the concert arranged at the Semifinal Club on 12 January 2001. This was to give the keyboarder the chance to appear in a low key environment before the tour dates in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark later that month. Burton described playing with HIM as "really easy and comfortable" as his bandmates helped him to learn the set. He was asked to become a full time member at the end of January 2001. He was friends with other members of the band while at school but did not join their band immediately. Instead, he went on to study music at a higher level and is now classically trained. Burton's influences include Tchaikovsky, Michael Jackson, and Pink Floyd.
