Album Notes
Songs That Soothe Souls, Mellow Minds
Tanja Maritsa's Debut Release: Child in My Heart

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM (05/25/08) - Singer/songwriter Tanja Maritsa has a truly unique and rare gift. Through her music, she provides a healing touch that pervades listeners with a delicate blend of Jazz, Pop, and Folk. Child in My Heart is her debut release and a masterful mixture of romantic and surreal songs that soothe souls and mellow minds.

Child in My Heart contains fourteen “musical miracles,” each with an almost heavenly ability to purvey meaning amidst madness and bring calm over chaos. However, Tanja is not alone in accomplishing these feats in this project. Truly seasoned professionals backed Maritsa's talented songwriting, profound lyrics and evocative vocals. There is meticulous production work by legendary arranger Richard Niles - who also added his guitar skills on the project. The remarkable piano instrumentation of Gwil Simcock fuses seamlessly with Tanja's sultry vocals. In addition, Robert Rickenberg (Double Bass) joins Jo Caleb (Guitar) and Gary O' Toole (Drums) to provide a perfectly placed performance palette for Maritsa.

Child in My Heart induces timeless emotions and an “inner innocence” which was always the goal for Maritsa. She states, “My absolute passion for music is fueled by giving and sharing something with other people.” She continues, “I chose songs I really love and have meaning to me in the hope that they would touch others.” There is melodic bliss within the multifaceted styles on the album. There are songs of dreams and philosophy such as “Songbird,” “The Wing and the Wheel,” and “Smile.” However, there are also more heart wrenching and melancholic songs such as “Memory Box” and “Shadow of a Man.” There's a romantic feel in tracks like “La Vie en Rose.” Enchanting songs like “A Thousand Years” and the title track “Child in My Heart” soaks into your heart and displays incredible vocal skills.

While Tanja has been mentioned in the same sentence as greats like Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald and reminiscent of Eva Cassidy and Joni Mitchell, she remains stylistically unique. She states, “While these are artists who have influenced me, I want to be genuine in my music and to be myself.” Child in My Heart is a dazzling display of talent. It will immerse you in enchanting melodies and masterful piano playing with songs that sooth the soul and mellow the mind. Child in My Heart is available now at Amazon.com, CDBaby.com, and via Tanja's MySpace site.
