Maini Sorri - You Are On My Mind Front Cover - Normal SizeMaini Sorri‘s single You Are On My Mind  got great reviews. Tunedloud Magazine wrote:

“The song is a collaborative effort by lyricist Barbro Norberg, music composer Maini Sorri, who also sings the song, and instrumental maker Jaakko Viitala. The track deals with Norberg’s sense of loss and longing after her dad’s passing away.”

“If you’re looking for songs with lots of emotional depth and substance, this is the track for you.”

“It’s a track by a mature woman who has mastered expressing vulnerability and celebrating emotions without sounding predictable or highly-strung.”

“With a refreshing sense of honesty, tremendous musical instincts and an alluring vocal tone, Maini’s connection to the music is an authentic one.” Read the whole review from October 26th 2018 here.

Rebecca Cullen at Stereo Stickman wrote: “Maini Sorri returns to release yet another creatively unique single”….”From a songwriting perspective, this is one of the most memorable melodies of Sorri’s to date.”

“Lyrically the release is a stunning poetic ode to a lost relative. Barbro Norberg writes on the passing of her father in a commendable way, bringing through heart-breaking ideas but also a strong focus on the positives – the good memories, the togetherness. Maini Sorri’s gentle voice lets the lyrics shine brightly throughout.”

“There’s an Enya-like feel to the presentation, the voice drives as if simply another instrument, so the collaboration just works.” Read the whole review from October 22nd 2018 here.

Act One Magazine wrote: “The combination of the tone, sound and melody in the music matches the lyrics extremely well and the result is warm, heartfelt and all in all a great song with both a great melody and outstanding lyrics.” Read the whole review from October 26th 2018 here.

Maini Sorri - Bring Me HomeMaini‘s pop/rock/dance album Bring Me Home got wonderful reviews.

Tunedloud wrote in the review of Bring Me Home on September 15th: “This might be Maini Sorri best album.”…”The songs grow with each play, becoming increasingly transfixing, drawing the listener in with their spiral soundscapes and employing Maini Sorri’s high-pitched vocals to great, yet subtle, effect.”

“This is as downright amazing as it could have been. There’s just so many ideas in the heads of Maini Sorri and her collaborators that 6 tracks just doesn’t seem enough. There’s depth, intensity, emotion, and interesting collaborations on offer, which ticks all the boxes for an extremely memorable recording from Maini Sorri.”

Rebecca Cullen at Stereo Stickman wrote in the review on September 19th:

” The title track from the project introduces things in a bold way, showcasing retro dance synths and a rising intensity, all woven in among a delicately optimistic and uplifting soundscape – with a vocal line that’s as delicate and smooth as you might find in ambient trip-hop. The euro-dance vibe is strong but it comes with a level of heart and depth on this particular single. There’s truth in the songwriting and this adds a lot of value and further intensifies that energizing feeling of possibility.”

She is always keen on experimenting with a wide variety of different genres, often exposing different creative possibilities and setting the bar higher in terms of what it is possible with music, often collaborating with different artists and songwriters along the way.”

Maini Sorri - Parting Of Our WaySome cuts from Maini‘s Parting Of Our Way reviews:  Jer at Sleeping Bag Studios writes: “Parting Of Our Way”ends up becoming quite the ride through a clever metal-melody that’s got a brilliant display of contrast between sweetness and the extreme. Orlando Mestre of the USA slays the guitar-parts completely, flexing much musical-muscle, style, chops & skills…”

“Orlando was a perfect choice to bring out the vibrant guitar-riffs and non-stop energy that fuels the music of “Parting Of Our Way” – and Maini is an equally-perfect choice to bring the lyrics/vocals to life through stunning contrast.”

“…it’s the magic in Maini’s performance that makes these words come alive.  Her sweetened tones sound innocent, yet bold in the mix of the music around her voice…”   Read the whole review here

A&R team at Got That Music LLC Records/All Purpose Music Group LLC writes: “The vocal performance has a soft angelic delivery with good melody range.”.. “The overall track sound is up to industry standards, good mix. Maini Sorri is a talented singer with a powerful produced musical composition!” “It’s a great song to be placed in movies and on television.” “Very marketable record!”

“Great overall sound, this team of producer, songwriter and singer have a lot of potential together!”

Rick Jamm at JamSphere writes: “The whole rock, ambient metal idea, is really cool, and blending it with Maini’s airy, high pitched vocals provides an interesting contrast.” “Her delivery is excellent, she has wonderful tone, and her harmonies sound absolutely beautiful.”

“When the music transitions from a heavier phase of the song to a dreamier, spacy feel, these transitions flow nicely. Guitars fade appropriately, percussion switches to a softer, electronic effect, and the vocals take the forefront, highlighting the strength and beauty of Maini’s voice.”

Brian Lanese & Orlando Mestre produced the track, and they did a fantastic job.”.. the two producers seemed to have clear ideas, without over producing. In conclusion, this is simply a fantastic track.” Read the whole review here:

Brett Stewart at Independent Spotlight writes: “The intensely prolific songwriter, who now has 25 albums in her discography, has proven to be a resilient and compellingly creative talent.” “Written by Gary Cornman with instrumentation by Orlando Mestre, the powerhouse track is arguably one of the more driving, bombastic efforts in Sorri’s catalog”

“Vocally, I’d perhaps align Sorri with a performer like Yoko Ono. She has a very expressive, unique voice, and it’s a good one, too.”…”I adore how Sorri harmonizes with herself; it’s a great sound.” “Parting Of Our Way’ is an excellent track. I love that Maini Sorri is continuing to experiment within her sound.” Read the whole review here

Andrea Caccese at The BandCamp Diaries writes: “Maini is a rare talent: she is great on melodies and on moody vibes, but her brand new single, “Parting of Our Way” is also proof that she can really rock when she wants to.”

“The song features really great overdriven guitar tones as well as some really powerful drums and some beautiful synth keys.”… “Maini particularly shines on this track by layering multiple vocal harmonies that truly constitute the vocal strength of this track.” “The song is fairly different from most of her previous work, and it is incredibly refreshing to see an artist that isn’t afraid to challenge her own boundaries and constantly experiment with new things and new takes on sound.”
