Ann-Marita has come hacking through the jungles of the music industry with the machete of her songs, and with a strong voice and sturdy melodies, she’s not backing down. Intuition is a confident stride onto the country/rock scene, with songs of love and strength paving the way. “Under the Iowa Sky” has a fresh Tom Petty jangle to its guitar and frank, hard-luck lyrics in which the singer refers to herself as a “pop star wannabe,” but if this album is any indication of what’s to come, she won’t have to want for long. “Three Magic Words” is a rompin’ honky tonk rocker, while “Two-Faced” stakes Ann-Marita’s claim as the next queen of country. The most moving song on the album, “Company Town,” starts off with a haunting protest-folk harmony and leads into a country ballad about a dismal miner town given one short moment of joy from a traveling band. The song has a warm swing to it, vaguely reminiscent of “Hotel California” in tempo, tune and spirit. Ann-Marita’s Intuition serves her well, and helps her find her way, through her songs, into your heart.

Favorite: Track 5 “Company Town”
