During the first years, the band based its songs on traditional music from western Finland. Later, they started to write the lyrics by themselves, but the themes are still connected to rural life - and the language used is western Finnish dialect.

Lauri Tähkä & Elonkerjuu 2006 album Maailma on renki went platinum. The next album, Tuhannen riemua got a gold record on the date of its publication, and double platinum in ten weeks. Until early 2008, that album has sold over 80,000 copies.
