As always, summer passed way too quickly.. but at least we had a few weeks of summer weather, so one should not complain! ;)

I'll mention a few things I've done this summer beginning with a sunny Föusjazz concert together with my ginger sisters and brothers. We also shared the stage with Jorma Lover Big Band for one song. Good times! :)


The next day I drove up north with my boyfriend and hiked the 82km long "Iso karhun kierros" trail for five days.

The nature in Lapland is so incredibly beautiful, I encourage everyone to go see it!



You just can't have a summer without going to an amusement park with your kids! :D

..or without swimming and boating and stuff..

..or without weddings and birthday parties and other "family and friends" stuff, but I'll keep those photos to myself ;)


Finally a few pics from gigs :)

It's been a really nice summer and as sad as it is to let it go we got to keep moving forward and to be honest I actually love fall too. A new start of new things, evenings getting dark again, getting back to everyday routines (yes I like these things! lol) and most importantly DANCE CLASSES START AGAIN AFTER SUMMER BREAK WOHOO!! :D And offcourse not to forget lots of gigs coming up! So farewell summer and welcome fall, happy autumn greetings to all! <3

Do you need live music for a family event of some sort? look no further!

I can perform solo (voc/piano), as a duo (voc/guitar), trio, quartet, quintet.. etc

and genres such as jazz, pop, soul, blues, funk.. you name it, I'll do it!

So don't hesitate to approach me by e-mail: mariah.hortans (at) gmail.com, by facebook messenger or even by old fashioned phone: +358 50 3459469.

I speak and sing in swedish, finnish and english.

So as we say in swedish: let me put a golden frame on your party by delivering high quality live music :)

Let summer begin!

I had the honour and pleasure to perform at the Finntastic Festival at Finlandsinstitutet in Stockholm a few days ago together with Erik Söderlind (guitar), Zacharias Holmkvist (bass) and Pontus Häggblom (drums). We could not have asked for a better audience so thank you all! :)

I also had some quality free time so here are a few pics of boats, boats and more boats..

Thank you Stockholm for this time and see you again in two weeks when I'll perform at my cousin's son's baptism with a brand new song :)
