“The Hearts Cry” is the latest release from Hennricksson and the result though far from a self-indulgent ego trip, rather a moving and elegiac artistic statement from start to finish. This is not your overly predictable Ramon Noodle Ambient Pop Artist. Instead Henricksson could be classed as a 4 genera artist: Ambient, Chill, Classical and vintage Celtic. Hennricksson has way too much precision and clarity to live in the shadows of overly-predictable Ambient/Pop. Indeed this is clearly evident in masterpiece songs like “Perfect Time”, “I Know You By Heart” and the title track which methodically ups the ante to a very respectable level of catchy musical expression and craftsmanship that transcends pigeonholing. The music is also commercially viable with a fresh sound and an entertaining vibe that holds the attentions span of the listener perfectly. Fans of vintage Celtic music must have this CD in their hands. In a nutshell this is “Clannad” meets “Moya Brennan.” The 14 song line-up comes fully loaded and appeals to many listeners with a wide variety of musical styles.I would imagine in time we will hear more from this artist via Movies and TV productions. No doubt Deborah Henricksson has carved a marketable niche for herself thus far setting herself up for increased marketable success her in the states over the years to come via her amazing finesse and vocal touch. I would not be surprised to hear her music featured one day on the Discovery Channel.  But for now I can honestly say this is one artist that clearly gives is a musical snapshot that is highly original, unique and dare I say brilliant in its vocal delivery.
