Marisa Yeaman

With the dust of the Australian continent firmly in her veins, travelling the nation with her family as a child, and the world since, has
given her a bagful of life experience that would be at home in a Kerouac novel. Marisa Yeaman’s strength as a writer lies in the ability
to connect the contradictions of the lives we lead and polarise them into songs which stay with the listener long after the notes fade.

If songs are a journal of the times we live in, then Marisa has been writing her own truth for most of her life. Her sound is her own, worn
off the edges of country twang, the soulfulness of the blues and the literal sensibility of modern day folk. Add a voice drenched in real
experience, rich from a roar to a whisper, and aching with passion and you begin to understand why Yeaman never quite fits squarely
into any musical box.

After almost a decade of work as a live musician in Australia, Marisa’s self released debut album ‘Pure Motive’ in 2005 climbed to
number 19 on the critic based Euro Americana Chart. Marisa’s follow up album ‘Roadmap Heart’ in 2008, earned accolades and
airplay from across the world and climbed to number 12. Now after many more miles, many notes and many songs, her highly anticipated
third full length album ‘Voices from the Underground’ debuted at number 4 on the Chart. She’s one of those rare artists who people continue to discover, purely on the strength of her talent.

Yeaman is a touring artist who has played regularly in Europe, UK, USA and Australia, building a loyal audience for her work and she
has shared stages with some of the most respected songwriters of our times like Tom Russell, Chris Smither and Ron Sexsmith. Her
music has had radio airplay in over 19 countries, and accolades from across the world. Marisa was recently invited to write for projects
with the prestigious Van Gogh Museum, and the Groninger Museum in The Netherlands.

Marisa Yeaman is a truly independent artist, producing and releasing her own records and carving her own following through her
captivating live performances. An authentic and intimate performer, she writes with the eye of a journalist, and the heart of a traveller.
This female troubadour continues to traverse the world touching audiences large and small.
