Album Notes
The Pictures Within is the debut album from singer/songwriter Maryen Cairns, released in the early '90's during the decade she lived in London.

When it was released London's TIME OUT said ".The Pictures Within comes across as a mature and moody collection of well-constructed pop-rock songs that have originality stamped all the way through. It's the sort of music that could inject some much-needed life into a market dominated by bland singer/songwriters and producers with PhDs in Beats Per Minute. As a writer, Cairns can hold up her head with the best of them, and the album is liberally studded with solid, memorable songs. "Too Young To Die", the upcoming single, is as catchy as anything we'll hear this year, and not a track on the album fails the quality test. The production is as clean and uncluttered as an SAS-man's rifle and if she were to get a few plays on wunnerful daytime radio, Cairns could find herself with a hit." (Jim Driver)

The single "Too Young To Die" was produced by legendary Rolling Stones producer Chris Kimsey - on his own time - and the music clip was used by Nickolodeon as part of their AIDS Education program.
