SCAN0825 Suomen uutisviikko 190503 1024On May 3rd Suomen Uutisviikko (Finland’s News week) newspaper published the article about Maini Sorri and her music, by Aleksander Milrin.

Some quotes (translated into English by Maini):

“Musician Maini Sorri has released 29 CD’s. Uppsala resident Sorri has performed her songs in concerts, radio and TV in Sweden and also competed with her music.”

“Spring is a wonderful time when it is becoming lighter and greener. I had this Spring much program and much to do, Sorri says.”

“On the compilation album there are songs of love and loss. Included is also a new song Love Bubble”… “I want to release many kinds of music.”

“Last album Bring Me Home was released in the Autumn 2018. Before that I released an album with the American rapper Magneto Dayo.”

“The new album called Someday Vol. 3 is a Swedish Finnish album. Almost all songs are arranged by Jaakko Viitala. There are also many Swedish Finnish lyrics writers. English lyrics of these tracks are translated by Barbara Helsingius. There are also lyrics by American Gary Cornman and Swedish Barbro Norberg.”

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 - You Are On My Mind Front Cover - Normal SizeYou Are On My Mind single was released on October 26th 2018. Maini Sorri has written the music. Barbro Norberg sent to Maini her beautiful poem about the longing after her Dad that passed away, and asked Maini to compose it.

Maini’s album Bring Me Home was released only a month earlier. The new single was released so soon because on November 3rd people in Sweden celebrated All Saints’ Day, and also during Christmas time people often long for relatives and friends that have passed away.
