Maini Shiny Eyes cd Artwork smallerHow did this all happen? It is quite unbelievable. For two weeks ago my new single Shiny Eyes was # 4 on the CMJ Charts Top5 list of all the week’s release throughout the U.S.

At the same time I got a friendly message from Newusb telling that I was the 4th most played artist worldwide!

My single Let Me Do Your Time is #4  on Musicworldradio Top 20 chart. It was #4 last week and it was #4 the week before.

My first song on MWR Top 20 chart Someday went direct to #4 and stayed on the chart for 44 weeks.

4 must be my lucky number!

Is there more number 4 in my life?

I was born in 4th month. I have 4 bothers (and a lovely sister).

I live on 4th floor. 4 families live on 4th floor.

Hi everyone!

Listen to my music tonight on Analogue Island – the weekly independent music show on Penwith Radio  8pm to 9pm British Summer time (kl 21-22 Swedish time)! Penwith radio is located in Cornwall in England.

HealeyIsland, the host of the show, writes:
So sit back and relax to some of the finest music on offer from the world of independent artists and labels.

Listen to the music and please leave a blog comment!

If you are not able to listen to the show tonight you can hear it when it is repeated on Thursday 2nd of July at 7pm BST and on Friday 3rd of July 7pm BST.

I Like MusicThe global radio temporarily backs down from charging listeners. They have received tons of negative feedback.  The founder of Richard Jones made an annauncement on March 24th about starting to charge listeners that don’t live in USA, UK or Germany.

I wrote a message to Richard Jones and got an answer. It was of course a good thing. It is important that the staff of listen to their 30 million monthly listeners and 280 000 artists and labels but the answer was only an explanation about why they decided to start charging listeners.  There is now  a strike among listeners on

On March 30th a new annauncement  by Richard Jones was published.  He annaunced that is delaying their move of beginning to charge listeners. It is good although we must keep in mind that this delaying is just temporary. We listeners and artists on Last-fm must keep fighting against this negative change, hoping that it will never happen. listeners are really the best listeners ever, many of them are listening to all their awaken hours. I have never met listeners so devoted to music than on has listeners from every country in the world and is not only a huge global radio but also a gigantic meeting place for music lovers from different parts of the world, recommending music to each other.

Keep free! FREE IS FREE

Check up this article.

De-Myth vocalist-lead guitarRichard Jones on the global Radio announced  yesterday an upcoming change. Last. fm will only be free in USA, UK and Germany. Other listeners are very soon required $3.00 per month for listening! There are 30 million listeners from all over the world. There are over 7 million tracks available. work with 280 000 labels and artists from all over the world, I am one of them.  

It is is very sad. There are many listeners who are going to leave their beloved because of this. In a couple of hours got over 1600 blog comments about the announcement so disabled further comments. $3.00 is much money in some parts in the world. A girl from Colombia wrote that she has to pay a sum that would be as big as 12 euro i Europe every month.

Until now I have loved I have listeners from different parts of the world that send me wonderful feedback that really makes my day. I am of course a listener, too. I listen to music in a way I never did before, I get recommendations from other listeners that  introduce me new music. There are really people who love music, they live and breath music and are the best listeners ever. Many of them listen to music the whole time they are awake. 

We have to try to stop this madness. Keep free!

I love Christmas



Maini Sorri: Christmas In Our Hearts

I love Christmas. In Sweden it is very common to have electric candelsticks at every window. Is there some of my visitors that still have them at the windows? I guess not. I have. It is only 2nd of February, there is no harry. We still have the Christmas tree, too. Alright, there are no Christmas decorations left on it but the tree is still there with candles.

I love Christmas music! I listen to Christmas songs during the whole December and January, sometimes in February too. Why not, it is a long time to next Christmas. I actually wrote a song about my Christmas habits, too, but just that song is nothing to share with the world, I have lots of better songs.

I am very happy to tell that I am one of the artists on International Christmas radio on There are Carola and Sanna Nielsen from Sweden and many international artists with very interesting Christmas music. It is worth a visit!

 Don’t worry, some day I will pack the candlesticks and the tree will disappear, too, but why hurry?

Have a nice day!
