“Uppsala artist Maini Sorri’s new single is produced by a real ace – Aubrey Whitfeld, known for his collaboration with, among others, Kelly Clarkson.

The song “Through Teary Eyes” will be released on Thursday 14 May and can be described as a straight and melodic pop song. Maini Sorri is pleased with both the result and the collaboration with Aubrey Whitfeld, who is based in London.
– It’s actually the first time I’ve worked with a female producer, says Maini Sorri.

Although the two have not met, all communication has been via the network. The fact that they found each other is mostly due to chance. Maini had first contact with another producer but felt that he did not really fit. Then he instead talked about Aubrey Whitfeld, who worked with artists like Simon Webbe from the group Blue, Kelly Clarkson, Soul II Soul and more.

– She has the ability to create an energetic, popping and driving sound. It is also noticeable that she is fond of her artists. She coaches and gives tips in an educational way.

The collaboration gave added flavor and Maini Sorri was happy to pick up the thread with Aubrey Whitfeld again. But first, “Through Teary Eyes” will be launched. Already she has received a receipt that it works. Earlier this year, she received an invitation to participate in the international World Songwriting Awards competition. She did not win but got the epithet “top finalist”. In addition, award-winning producer Kutayden from Turkey has made a video for the song.

– This evening, the song premiered at the radio show “Female Fronted Rock and Metal Show” in New York. Then I attended myself and chatted with listeners and the presenter, says Maini Sorri.

Maini Sorri - Bring Me HomeMaini‘s pop/rock/dance album Bring Me Home got wonderful reviews.

Tunedloud wrote in the review of Bring Me Home on September 15th: “This might be Maini Sorri best album.”…”The songs grow with each play, becoming increasingly transfixing, drawing the listener in with their spiral soundscapes and employing Maini Sorri’s high-pitched vocals to great, yet subtle, effect.”

“This is as downright amazing as it could have been. There’s just so many ideas in the heads of Maini Sorri and her collaborators that 6 tracks just doesn’t seem enough. There’s depth, intensity, emotion, and interesting collaborations on offer, which ticks all the boxes for an extremely memorable recording from Maini Sorri.”

Rebecca Cullen at Stereo Stickman wrote in the review on September 19th:

” The title track from the project introduces things in a bold way, showcasing retro dance synths and a rising intensity, all woven in among a delicately optimistic and uplifting soundscape – with a vocal line that’s as delicate and smooth as you might find in ambient trip-hop. The euro-dance vibe is strong but it comes with a level of heart and depth on this particular single. There’s truth in the songwriting and this adds a lot of value and further intensifies that energizing feeling of possibility.”
