Cheers To The Vikings

This new catchy song ‘Steam’ from Maryen Cairns and produced by Chris Kimsey, not only demands your attention for being as creative as it is… but it didn’t take much before we fell head over heels in love with her voice. Maryen Cairns might just be one of our favorite artists this month.

With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

14th September 2019

Maryen’s voice is strong and has the timbre of a more rock-influenced Karen Carpenter and at times reminds me of Roseanne Cash. If I had to describe her style I would say softer rock with a smattering of folk influence, but that would be blinkered, it is simply great music. “Steam” definitely makes me want to hear more from Maryen... Get your lugholes around “Steam” and then delve deeper into Maryen’s back catalogue

STEAM - Maryen's new single from "Come To Me"
