Open Sky (2008)

Singer/Songwriter with a dash of wild hair!

2012 Album - Junkyard Dog (2012)

This year I wrote in quite a few genres. Since most people know me as a blues woman, and I have a few tunes there, I'll choose that genre for now. Thanks to all the RPM'ers who participated, and I look forward to seeing you next year! Best, Debra

BAND MEMBERS
Me, Myself, and I this time. Acoustic 6-string and 12-string guitars, bass, and multiple vocals. My other rock 'n roll music life is what made my voice so dang hoarse on the love songs...I'd still like to have my cake and eat it too in the singing world, running the gammut between fury and finesse. Maybe I"ll produce and flesh these tunes out in the next months. Stay tuned!
