Maja Mannila Trio
Maja Mannila / vocals, piano, composing Severi Sorjonen / drums Johannes Granroth / bass


Maja Mannila is an impressive young jazz/soul singer, pianist and composer. With her band, she performs her own songs in English, which are a mix of r’n’b, soul, jazz and gospel music. Raised in a family of musicians, she has a firm grasp on making music, while emphasizing the importance of freedom and fun in creating and playing music. In the future, Mannila aims for an international courier both with a band and as a solo artist. Maja has been recorded by English drummer Richard Spaven and singer Anthony Strong, who have asked Maja to perform with them. Severi Sorjonen (drums) and Johannes Granroth (bass) make music with Mannila in the Maja Mannila Trio; The band was selected for the 2023 Nordic Jazz Comets event to represent Finnish new jazz. Maja also plays and sings in the young up-and-coming band Peela. In 2021-22, she performed in Iiro Rantala’s Flock lineup, touring Central Europe.

Mannila’s debut album “Up & Down” was released in June 2022.

‍”The band that playfully combines new-age soul with jazz serves up an international soundscape that would surely appeal to young people.”

Aleksi Näsänen, Turun Sanomat 4.3.2023

“In the performance of the skilled trio, the attention is taken by Mannila herself, whose deep and honeyed voice is one of the best that can be found in this country. Mannila’s use of voice is natural and effortless – it is is absolutely sublime in the art of vocals”

Aleksi Näsänen, Turun Sanomat 4.3.2023

“Att Up & Down uttryckligen är Maja Mannilas skiva står ändå klart, så till vida att hon inte bara själv står för samtliga elva låtarna – inklusive ett kortare intro och mellanspel – utan i synnerhet för att texterna har en så påfallande personlig prägel. Och att hon verkligen är en speciell sångarförmåga med ett brett uttryck går inte att ta miste på.”
