272 Records in Los Angeles found Maini Sorri from Uppsala on Maini’s Myspace music page and contacted her. In less than 24 hours the record deal had already been signed.
Contact with the record label A & R director has been frequent throughout the summer. What is clear is that the record company is hooked on Maini’s music. A & R wrote: “We’d love to have you on board! We really enjoy your song I Should not Have Trusted You, and think it would be a great addition to the record!”
A compilation album was published in August and it is distributed worldwide. The album is also sold at Hollywood’s biggest and most popular record store. Beyond radio distribution the album will be distributed to Cafes and Coffee Houses on Hollywood Blvd., Sunset Blvd. and Melrose Avenue. On the album you can hear I Should not have trusted you and Like an angel, composed by Maini. The lyrics of most of Maini’s songs are written by herself but the lyrics of Like an angel are written by Marjo-Riitta Oksanen. Maini’s songs are translated by Barbara Helsingius into English.
Maini Sorri is from Lempäälä and she moved to Sweden in the age of 17. She worked as a music teacher e.g. in Uppland, but has dedicated to her own music the recent years.
Social media and spreading of music via internet has opened doors to the global distribution of the music.
Maini wrote her first piece of music at 8 and has played and sung all her life. She became well known through her songs. Maini has a band with John Baumann from Italy, and Sorriso Special Friend was elected to Arzuk Artist of the Week in California in April this year. There are also other number one spots for Maini on international charts.
Maini has said in interviews that a strong motive for making music is to bring joy to listeners and to make them feel good. Maini’s humane and bright music reaches out to listeners, the message is easy to understand, and it has always a warm tone. Maini has been studying singing for decades, and her repertoire is surprisingly all around – it includes ballads, pop and even techno music.
Maini Sorri was for a long time #2 on a vote based World Music Radio Chart Top 20 list. On the top of not quite two year old Top 20 chart has beyond Maini and Menowin been e.g. Depeche Mode”.
