REVIEWS FOR 'ROADMAP HEART'

HEAVEN MAGAZINE (BENELUX) FOUR STARS

AUSTRALIAN CLASS

Australian born Marisa Yeaman deliberatly let her music industry contract run out, so she could follow her own artistic path. Her latest album proves her right. There were a couple of pearls on her debut album from 2005, Pure Motive, but with Roadmap Heart she has chosen a more countrylike style that enables her to explore her talent even further. Her songs are beautiful and personal tales that reach right into the heart of the listener, like the Dylanesk 'Amsterdam Rain' that was written in the Netherlands. She has a magnificent voice that reminds of Shawn Colvin and Eliza Gilkyson. Yeaman is also a very humble performer who likes to play the Netherlands and the rest of Europe. If she’s around: go see her and meanwhile listen to Roadmap Heart.
