I send lots of greetings to all DJs that play Let Me Do Your Time and to all listeners and fans that love Let Me Do Your Time and send me such great messages :)

There is a new disco star in town. Maini Sorri’s Let Me Do Your Time climbed high on Digilistan, the list of Sweden’s most downloaded songs.
– It feels great fun, I get little joy shocks now and then, says Maini Sorri.

HER MELODIES TOUCH
Maini Sorri has always had music with her in her life. In her childhood home, the Finnish parsonage, they sang lots of spiritual songs. She began to play piano and guitar, at first she played by ear and tried to teach herself. Later Maini Sorri’s mom sent her to take piano and singing lessons. Her first piano piece she wrote as an 8-year-old, and after encouragement, she wrote her first song, 20 year old.

– I have a passion for music, says Maini Sorri.

To Sweden she came from a village near Tampere in Finland when she was seventeen. A teenage love had got her interested in Sweden and she moved to Uppsala with his older sister who would start studying here in town.

– Of course mom probably thought it was a bit tough. At the same time she knew how stubborn I was and that she could not stop me, says Maini Sorri.

In Uppsala, she took music teacher certificate and later worked at various schools around the Upland including the music school in Tierp. She liked being  a music teacher, but in recent years it has been her own music that applied to her.

The music she writes she describes as pop ballades – songs with touching lyrics. She often writes both music and lyrics herself, but lately she has also written music fto other lyricswriters´poems. Maini Sorri describes that she has a small lyrics-hiding-place that she occasionally visit to pick out the best lyrics.

– When I select the lyrics which I compose music for, it is important that they convey a feeling and have something melancholy included. I could never write music to lyrics about a car for example, she says, smiling.

The creation of music seem effortless, when Maini Sorri tells about it. She describes it as the music gets to her, the inspiration is flowing, when she sits down at her piano.

A year ago, an American Music company contacted  her and wanted to promote her songs in the U.S. Through them, she released first her EP Someday in the U.S., and then Let me do your time. The song, which is about a person who wants to take an innocent’s place in prison, is quite different from her other songs. Instead of a sensitive ballad, it is a dance tune with heavy beats.

– My singing coach thought it would fit like a dance tune, says Maini Sorri.

It turned out to be a success. Suddenly Let me do your time was played on many radio stations in the U.S. and Europe, and the song found its way even into the Swedish Digilistan – list of most downloaded songs in Sweden. As highest it was in sixteenth place of the list’s 60 songs. Maini is pleased because she is now played around the world.

– There are so many artists who never get to experience this and I think I wouldn’t have come here if I haven’t worked so hard for so many years, she says.

For Maini Sorri waits exciting new projects. Recently her band that she has together with an Italian singer released new material. The band is called Sorriso, which means smile in Italian. This fall she will release new songs under her own name, it will be both pop ballades and songs with fast beat.

– I’m really excited, I get  little joy shocks now and then, says Maini Sorri.

Maini Discodrottning löpsedel 110329Newspaper placard: She is the New Disco Queen of the City

Maini wants to hit big
Uppsala’s New Pop Queen

Forget E-type, Basic Element and Pandora. Sweden’s latest Eurodisco hope Maini Sorri is from Uppsala. With the new song “Let me do your time” she had last week one of the most downloaded songs.

Maini Sorri stands out in several ways. With a history as a music teacher and with three albums and one EP in the trunk, she is no newcomer in the industry. A woman who previously recorded Finnish ballads and poems set to music, she is an odd bird among the artists on Digilistan in P3. Here she has bounced in and out in recent weeks with her latest song in the euro disco-style “Let me do your time”.
– “I have written it as a ballad, as all my songs. It was my songcoach’  idea, she thought it could fit as a bit more techno”, says Maini Sorri.
At best, the song has been Sweden’s 26th most downloaded song in the company of hot artists like Petter and September, and Tove Styrke.
– “It’s amazing. P3 has never played my music before. Everything is just so wow”, she says and giggles.
The move from pop to this genre may seem a long way. But Maini Sorri is curious and like to try new things.
– “I have an acquaintance who is a rap artist, I’ve had a thought about a collaboration in the past but never dared to ask, but perhaps now. ” She tells that the next dance hit is on it’s way, but not finished.

Caption: On the upswing. Uppsala resident Maini Sorri is Sweden’s new pop hope. She has now taken the step from pop to more swinging euro disco music.
Caption: Swinging. With her new euro disco hit, Let me do your time, Maini Sorri have been played on many radio stations around the world such as Spain, England and USA.

Background: Music teacher in Tierp and Enköping, artist.
Discography: Two albums in Finnish and Swedish (1998, 2006), a Christmas CD (2006) and one ep (2010) where she sings in English. And a duoprojekt – Sorriso – where she collaborates with an Italian artist (2010).
Current: with her single Let me do your time.

LET ME DO YOUR TIME

1. Let me show how much I really care

Don’t surrender don’t you dare.

You have that worried look

as your body shook.

Just look at me

and let me set you free.

Chorus

Let me do your time

for your alleged crime.

Let me be adviser

no one will be the wiser.

I will take your plea

if you will let me,

shouldn’t hit a glitch

in this bait and switch.

2. Let me show how much I really care

Don’t surrender don’t you dare.

I’ll never let you down,

they will make you frown

but look at me

and let me set you free.

Chorus

Let me do your time

for your alleged crime.

Let me be adviser

no one will be the wiser.

I will take your plea

if you will let me,

shouldn’t hit a glitch

in this bait and switch.

Take your time and tell me every detail,

why these people want to put you in jail.

Although you are innocent they haunt you

Is there any justice left for us two?

Chorus

Let me do your time

for your alleged crime.

Let me be adviser

no one will be the wiser.

I will take your plea

if you will let me,

shouldn’t hit a glitch

in this bait and switch.

Let me set you free.
