Maini Sorri - I Fall To PiecesMaini‘s rock single I Fall To Pieces got excellent reviews. Rick Jamm from London writes in Jamsphere Magazine:

“Like all of Maini recordings, I Fall To Pieces proves to be an extremely rewarding listen as its internal complexities unfold…As usual Maini once again shows that she is at the top of her game vocally. The song’s musical and lyrical thoughts are delivered in the clearest manner they could ever be”. Read the whole review here

Brett Stewart, Chicago, Tilting Windmill Studios writes: “Sorri’s vocals are solid, as usual…I’d actually align her vocal style to that of Yoko Ono. I mean that as a compliment, too…Sorri’s typical pop sensibility is infused into ‘I Fall To Pieces’ as well, and it’s a catchy tune.”Read the whole review here

Bree Morcroft, freelance writer from Melbourne, Australia writes: “After a slow-building, atmospheric introduction, ‘I Fall To Pieces’ explodes into a slightly unexpected, but pleasing bright burst of pop goodness the moment the vocal kicks in.” Read the whole review here

Bradley Rust, freelance writer from Sydney, Australia writes: “Maini follows up the impressive collaboration single ‘Second Chance’ with a new single of her own. To start with, my first vibe is a little Nightwish style from the opening 30 seconds before the pace eases a little and her voice takes centre stage”. Read the whole review here

More more sound writes: “I Fall To Pieces” is a truly stunning track with a rock edge that feels emotional and fragile, yet uplifting and direct, highlighting Maini’s strong ability to turn touching personal stories into amazing melodies with a purpose”. Read the whole review here

Maini Sorri - MoiraRead this great review by LA Music Examiner in LA, USA: “Moira” is the new single by Finnish singer-songwriter Maini Sorri and Jörgen Hansson. Backed with “Moira (Instrumental Version)”, this is the most recent example of the Sweden-based Sorri’s pop signature sound. Writing since age 8, Sorri has had some time to polish her tuneful trademark performing her songs live as well as on TV and radio.

Released mere days ago “Moira” not only reveals her previous vocal training but also demonstrates she must have paid attention when she was a student of music theory and composition. It’s got a new yet not at all foreign sound to it. Sorri was happy to shed some light on the subject.

Maini Sorri3“Moira’ is a song about my young fan Moira. I gained her as a devoted fan when I sang at Swedish radio’s Song contest in Axevalla, Sweden. I told (American) Gary Cornman about the sweet six year old girl Moira and he surprised me by writing a poem about her that I then composed”. It was later remixed by Jörgen Hansson who also sang background vocals.

The second track is a simply the underlying instrumental. It allows the listener to focus on the actual music composition. The single’s recently released accompanying music video was directed by W.A. Henderson and stars Cindy Clark both from Hollywood, Los Angeles. If it works with audiences as well as some of her previous work it will soon be on radio playlists in Sweden, Finland, the UK, the US, Spain and other countries.

Maini Sorri4Sorri’s new music video is currently on YouTube and her music is available on Facebook, ReverbNation, Bandcamp, the global online radio station Last.FM, MySpace and online stores worldwide. Check out Maini Sorri’s “Moira”. You won’t be (ahem) sorry.

My name is Phoenix and . . . that’s the bottom line.”
