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 know exactly how to play a piano, but she decided that nothing was 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 recordlabel 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 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 had a past in the swedish rock’n roll band Captain Murphy. 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 4 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. 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. Her song Oh Boy became massive all over the world after it appeard in a commercial for Volvo. In 2011 Miss Li release
her 4th studioalbum ,the more soulful Beats & Bruises and now after touring the world several times, she is in studio to finish her 5th album. It will be released in summer 2012...And so the story continues...

Even if her voice is broke, she is a real hurricane and so bubbeling happy to be on stage that I almost cry by rapture. Hope from the bottom of my heart that she keeps that joy of playing for a long, long time. Beside, her musicians is incredibly tight witch is a delight to experience
60 min of joy & happiness :-)
