Nothing scares me more than hype when it comes to new music - rather than making me interested, it makes me want to avoid it at all cost. So when several of my fellow Swedish music maniacs started raving on about Miss Li earlier this year, I didn’t make much of an effort to see what all the fuss was about. However recently I did manage to get around and give Miss Li a listen and I’m happy to report that she indeed does deserve to be raved about.

Mixing jazz, country, blues and pop together with her often cocky lyrics, Miss Li (real name Linda Carlsson) is a fun and fresh addition to the Swedish music scene. She’s far from a newbie though - Miss Li’s latest album, “Songs of a Rag Doll” is actually her third effort being released on record label National, and her second record this year (!).

Hopefully this little introduction has sparked an interest with some of our readers, even amongst those who share my hype-phobia.

Linda Carlsson aka Miss Li is a Swedish singer. Miss Li’s musical style is a mix of jazz, cabaret and blues and her lyrics are naive and simple and full of life.

Miss Li’s debut record, Late Night Heartbroken Blues was released in November 2006 on National Records. In 2007 she released her second full length, God Put a Rainbow In the Sky in may. Miss Li’s new album Songs of a Rag Doll came out in October 2007.
