"she allows her vocals to soar and the electric guitar break is quite superb as it transforms the piece.

Overall this is a more varied album than ‘Femina Australis’, yet still manages to retain her roots, so she uses a steel when the time is right, or a violin, and plenty of piano and warm fretless bass. It is again the album of a mature artist who is confident in her ability and songwriting skills. She can put an edge on her vocals, or just lift them up showing her soprano range, or let it come down lower to provide more emotion. Lyrics are incredibly important to Cairns, and each song really is a story in its own right"

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.
