ChristmasAfter listening to Best-of Christmas albums too many times, too many Christmases, I thought it would be nice to find some new favourites. And why not start looking among all the artists we have presented here at Meadowmusic?

Meadowmusic celebrates 100!

October 25, 2008 at 1:00 pm

MeadowMusicThis is the hundredth post on this blog. It means that we so far have presented ninetynine artists, songwriters and producers. We thought of celebrating this by having a mini cavalcade with songs from some of the artists we have reviewed. Many of these songs are exclusive for download only here on Meadowmusic, and I hope that they are shared with people all over the world if you as a visitor like the songs.

We, here on Meadowmusic, are overwhelmed by all the support we have received since we started in the beginning of July. We started this because it felt like we were carrying around a secret that we just had to share with the world. And the secret was that there’s so much fantastic Swedish music, that seldom is played on the radio or other mainstream channels. And that this music is just as good, well, in fact much better than what is heard there. Well, it’s not a secret anymore, is it?

First we would like to thank you as a visitor, because you come here and listen to the music. Every visit, every time you listen, every recommendation to a friend, every mention of what you hear contributes to the promotion of the artists and their music, and to the support of this blog.
Thank you for all mail and tips and also for the communication with the artists.

We also would like to thank all the artists that support us. And I don’t mean only the artists that we have presented here, but also all of you that have contacted us, telling us that what we do is important and great. Thank you!

Below you’ll find some extra songs with artists from earlier posts. (Click on the artist’s name to go to the post about the artist.)

Maini Sorri

I willingly admit that I haven’t been a big consumer of music in languages that I don’t know. And for you to understand why, I must say that the lyrics are really important to me as a listener. Just as important as the feeling of the song.
My experience of music sung in Finnish has been at a level of zero. Or at least very close to it – I may have overheard one or a couple of the Finnish contributions to the Eurovision Song Contest. Until now.
Beacuse after Maini Sorri’s great success with her “Lähden Yksin”, which was releaesed on the compilation “Allt ljus på oss” (All lights on us), I must say that I am amazed and astonished. Never had I thought that I’d be humming along on a Finnish song – which is exactly what I am doing on a more or less daily basis now. And I’m also happy to expand my own Finnish vocabulary.

Apart from that, Maini Sorri is also an inspiration as a marketer. Maini does not bashfully ask permission. Maini kicks the door open, and armed with her stubbornness she has now succeeded in creating personal contacts with several musical editors at both Nordic and European radio stations. She is also played in Canadian radio as well as on TV6 in the US. Maini does not only inspire as the fantastic female musician she is – but also with her great personality, stubbornness and strength.
