Maini Sorri - MoiraMaini Sorri & Jörgen Hansson‘s new  pop single Moira is released on March 3rd 2014. Moira is a song about Maini’s young fan Moira. Maini gained her as a devoted fan when she sang at Swedish radio Sisuradio’s Song contest in Sweden.

Maini has, as always, written the music. Lyrics are by Gary Cornman from USA. The remix is by Jörgen Hansson and the label behind the release is Reya music from Sweden.

Jörgen Hansson is the award winner, multi instrumentalist and producer and the founder of the Fingerprint studio. He was Maini’s mentor at The Global Voice Singing Competition. Maini competed with Moira and got a shared second place in the contest.

Moira is available in webshops around the world, on itunes, Amazon etc. You can also listen to Moira at spotify.

Maini Sorri & Jörgen Hansson – Moira video is about to be released. Video Director is W.A. Henderson from Hollywood, LA. The video stars Cindy Clark from Hollywood, LA.

Melodifestivalen bildThere has been two Swedish national selections of Eurovision Song Contest so far. About 86 % of the songwriters are men. It means that Sweden is not as equal as people think when it comes to music.

Some of the songs that have been picked up for the selections are written by the same men year after year. Every song that a songwriter gets into the contest generates a lot of money. Why is it so important that mostly men earn that money? There are lots of talented female songwriters in Sweden. What I hope for next year’s selections is that we get a female Eurovision Song Contest General who’s goal is to pick up songs of great female songwriters to the selections.

I have a quite good song memory. It is sad that many phrases in some songs are heard before. It happens when the same persons write songs to the contest year after year.

Artists vary but the sex of the songwriters don’t. It is very peculiar that the lack of female songwriters is not more noticed by media and listeners. Everyone is so used to it, after years and years with the same male Eurovision Song Contest General in Sweden.

Most of the contestants are also men, although there are lots of great female artists and bands in Sweden. In the second national  selection tonight 80 % of the artists were men!
