Mia Hafrén

I am a Finnish singer/songwriter, musician and actor, probably best known as a member of the band Fork. I will release my second album For the Brave on March 1st 2024. For the Brave consists of 11 songs written by me and I guess you could say they are some kind of modern protest songs. I write about things that bother me and things that make me happy. What I love the most is live performances so I hope to see you at one of my concerts! I was born as Mia Johanna Hafrén in Loviisa, a small town in south-east of Finland, and went to study acting at the Theatre Academy in Helsinki. In the late 90s I formed the band Fork together with three other members. The band is known as one of the world’s leading professional, contemporary a cappella groups, touring the globe with magnificent shows that ”fearlessly combine an impressive range of performing arts”. But all good things must come to an end. Forks last performance was in November 2020. After the group split, I began to write my own music in my mother tongue, Swedish. My first single På andra sidan was released on September 24th, 2021 and the whole album, Också för dig (meaning Also for You) in March 2022. The second album is in English, as you can hear on the singles Easy To Love, Exclusively Yours and Goodness (a letter to a dictator). I also work as a actor and as a brief therapist. I like to keep busy. Have a great day and thanks for your time!

Goodness (a letter to a dictator)

I have to ask
What´s the plan
You go about
Like you´re the man

I have to ask
What’s this strife
Your ignorance 
plays with lives

I have to ask 
What´s your game
Do you ever feel
Any kind of shame?

Oh its crazy crazy crazy
But I believe in goodness nonetheless
Oh it´s crazy crazy crazy
But I believe in goodness nonetheless

So every day
I wait for a revelation
An understanding 
To change this situation

In every way 
I hope for a revolution
A way to end your total mad delusion

It’s crazy crazy crazy
But I believe in goodness nonetheless

I wanna know 
How you compromise
With yourself 
and those who pay the price

I have to ask 
You to leave
There´s no one here
Who would really grieve

Oh I’m crazy crazy crazy
But I believe in goodness nonetheless
You think I’m crazy crazy crazy
But I believe in goodness nevertheless

I wanna know what you’re gonna do about it

Exclusively Yours

If there´s a why there´s a how
If there´s a how there´s a way
If there´s a way – stay

When confused, stand still
Hold your breath until
A conclusion, then wait
And stay. Stay.

And I, I am life, yours to take, yours to own
And I am the king and the cause of it all
And you, you are the why

Stay
I´m exclusively yours to have, use and hold
Stay
I´m conclusively yours to shape shake and mould

We have been here before
far beyond this encore
past the gates of the lions and snakes and wild boar
you will take, take my hand and walk with me
Cuz you are the why…

Stay
I´m exclusively yours to have, use and hold
Stay
I´m conclusively yours to shape shake and mould

Easy to love

It’s what you don’t say
That gives you away
You don’t even try to fake a smile
The way you close the front door when you leave
The very special silence your exit reveals

You’re not easy to love today
Your edges are sharp in every way
You’re not easy to love today
But I do

And throughout the week 
I wait for you to speak
And when you find the words to say how you feel
The very special silence when we let ourselves heal

You’re not easy to love today
Your edges are sharp in every way
You’re not easy to love today
But I do

And then one day
When you get home
Not saying that
You brought it on
But just in case 
You´ll find a note
I might be gone

You’re not easy to love today
You’re holding a grudge my way
You’re not easy to love to day 
But I do

Också för dig
Executive producer Mia Hafrén

Så mycket mod

Det är inte idag 
Som du knäcks av otillräckliga svar 
Det är inte idag 
Som ett mörker göra dig oanträffbar 

Inte heller idag ger du upp fastän det goda i livet verkar dröja
inte heller idag ber du solen bära sin purpurröd slöja

Jag vet att du inte litar på nån 
Du har dina skäl

Jag vet att du vill bort härifrån
Du har dina skäl

Jag vet att du kommer ur det här hel
Jag ger dig ett skäl 

Du har Så jävla mycket mod i dig 
Så hålls här med mig 
Jag behöver dig 

Så jävla mycket mod i dig 
Så finns kvar med mig 
Och jag älskar dig

Det är kanske idag
Som du börjar med att ge dig själv som en möjlighet
kanske idag som du känner att vi bor på samma planet

Det är kanske redan idag som en tanke lockar dig att le

Och kanske är det idag som inte hela världens känns på sned

Jag vet att du vill bort härifrån  
Du har dina skäl 

Jag vet att du kommer ur det här hel
Jag ger dig ett skäl

Du har så jävla mycket mod i dig
Så hålls här med mig
Jag behöver dig

Så jävla mycket mod i dig
Så finns kvar med mig
Och jag älskar dig

Vi tar en dag i sänder
