After having won hearts in the UK and on the continent, Ida Maria homes in on the US market for 2009 beginning with the March 17th release of her debut album ‘Fortress Around My Heart’.

Stockholm-based, Northern-Norway bred rock chick Ida Maria heads out on a US tour this week in support of the US release of ‘Fortress Around My Heart’. The tour includes gigs at Austin’s South By Southwest Festival as well as Coachella.

Writes in a review posted on March 16th: “It’s a confident, downright cracking debut record, and late to the party as we in North America may be, when the music’s a fun as this, it hardly matters at all”. (7/10)
