Finnish born and Sweden based artist and composer Maini Sorri, a BA in piano, song, music theory and composing, releases her beautiful new single ‘Christmas In Our Hearts’, with ‘B’ side ‘Our River Runs on Christmas Night’, the follow up to her recent successful UK single release ‘Someday’.
“Sorri’s inner beauty shines through….this Scandinavian singer-songwriter sure delivers sophisticated pop….delightful.” 4/5
“Classic sounding and European embracing…a lovely voice…and an appreciation for classic song-writing values.”
“It takes sincerity…a deal of musical sensibility…and a belief in the ultimate message….Maini Sorri seems to have these ability’s in spades….a pure crystalline voice….she knows exactly what she’s doing and the sound she wants to achieve, and the result is a modest little box of jewels”
2010 saw Maini release her first EP in the UK and the title track ‘Someday’ received support and airplay on numerous UK radio stations including a number of BBC Regional shows – thus bringing her beautiful voice and music to British audiences for the first time.
She was invited by Swedish Radio to compete and take part in a song contest, which was broadcast live across the Swedish airwaves, and her single ‘Someday’ reached, and stayed at, number 3 in the World Music Radio charts as voted for by their listeners for over a month.
Maini writes music and lyrics under a strong inspiring spirit. This is transcribed into her songs as they come across as honest and genuine and listening to her music reveals that Maini definitely has her own style.
Many writers send their lyrics to Maini hoping that she will compose them into the beautiful and melodious songs she has come to be so well known for. Songwriter Gary Cornman from the USA discovered Maini, sent his lyrics to her and so far Maini has composed 15 of Garys poems into recordings.
Italian artist John Baumann also contacted Maini after hearing her music and asked if he could record with her. In November 2009 he travelled to Sweden to record and together they formed a band ‘Sorriso’ (meaning smile in Italian) with their first EP together being released in January 2010.
Maini has also worked with the legendary Finnish artist Barbara Helsingius, who translated all her lyrics on this, and her last EP release, into English for Maini to release globally.
Maini's songs are often played on TV 6 in America and on radio in Canada where she also has a strong following. With a wealth of listeners all around the world, she spends much of her time every day answering messages from fans from different parts of the world that love her voice and her music.
