Miss Li


Miss Li
Since the debut in 2006 National is the recordlabel, publisher and booking agency for Miss Li. The somewhat amazing story is widely known, but is worth repeating: One early morning in 2006, Linda Carlsson couldn´t sleep. She was lying awake thinking about buying a piano and start writing songs. She didn´t exactly know how to play a piano, but she decided that nothingwas going to stop her this time.

Later that day, a brand new piano stood in her tiny apartment in Stockholm, where she recently had moved from her birthplace Borlänge, and she instantly started writing songs under the name Miss Li.

Already a few months later she came in contact with the label National and that autumn in 2006 she released the first album Late night heartbroken blues. She was so inspired and the following year she released yet another two albums (God put a rainbow in the sky and Songs of a rag doll) all within one year, plus a Best of compilation (including a bonus CD with 8 previously unreleased tracks) with the best songs from that first year. She had also found the perfect producer and songwriting partner in Sonny Boy Gustafsson, who also jouined the live act. Together with Sonny and the rest of the band she toured the whole world with that jazzy, uptempo pop they were playing which had become the signature for Miss Li. She also had a huge hit (Om du lämnar mig nu) together with Lars Winnerbäck, Swedens most popular male-singer at the time, and the song is still a top-10 hit after 5 years on the charts.

In 2009 the fourth album Dancing the whole way home was released, and it had a new sound compared to the earlier albums. It had a marvelous response from both the audience and critics and was released in Germany, Japan, France, Benelux and others.Several of the songs have since been used in TV shows such as Grey´s anatomy, Desperate housewife´s and Weeds. The song Bourgeois Shangri-La was used in a world wide commercial campaign for Apple’s Ipod nano and was voted pop song of the year by Itunes Japan.Her song Oh Boy became massive all over the world after it appeard in a commercial for Volvo.

In April 2011 the fine Beats & Bruises was released, an album which undoubtedly cemented Miss Li's place among the greatest and most interesting Swedish artists. The first single, I can´t get you off my mind became another Miss Li-hit and could for example be heard on Grey's Anatomy, together with no less than three additional tracks from the album! Second single You could have it (so much better...) was pitched to the French film Sea no sex and sun, and the album also gave Miss Li was an increasingly strong position in Germany, a country that has become something of a second home – more than a hundred gigs have been implemented only there, latest a highly acclaimed tour in December 2011.

In October 2012, Miss Li returns with a brand new studio album, Tangerine Dream, perhaps her best since the debut album. First single My heart goes boom instantly became a hit in Sweden. Abroad, it has participated in the Next Top Model, one of Germany's biggest TV shows and in September it could be enjoyed in Grey's Anatomy first episode of the season. The album is mixed by Lasse Mårtén (Lykke Li, Peter Bjorn and John, etc.)

Now, 2013, her seventh full-length album, "Wolves" is released (April 10:th) and as usual we are invited on a vertiginous trip. Initially, the plan was to make an album of unreleased works from 2007-2012, but this all changed during last winter and instead it became an album with nine entirely new songs.

The songs are co-written with Sonny Boy Gustafsson who is also the producer. The album was mixed by Lasse Marten (Lykke Li, Peter Bjorn & John, etc.). We are now looking forward to the Spring tour starting April 12:th which will extend over the summer festivals.
