Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Marie Schumacher’s new album is very nice. Her soft yet powerful voice works its way through an eclectic set of songs.

“Everybody Knows” is like a grittier Sheryl Crow and shows Schumacher’s gift for writing memorable songs.

“Real Problems” is a strong, soulful song that allows her voice to shine. The band behind her play wonderfully as well.

She then covers Prince’s “When You Were Mine” and makes it sound like her own song.

“One More Cup” is a bluesy and humorous ode to coffee.

It’s a bit like Bonnie Raitt and features lovely guitars-playing by Schumacher and Steve Gibson.

“Bloodshot Eyes” is a folksy song with a great chorus.

“Inside Looking Out” is a solid, enjoyable record that should please many.
