Debbie's Spring Music News!

Debbie's Spring Music News!

Hi guys,

I can't believe the last newsletter I sent was in January and it's already April! Hope everyone is having a wonderful start to their spring. I've been busy continuing to promote No Longer Broken with interviews and radio play. I don't always get copies of the interviews but there are a couple new ones you can hear. One was with Ray Powers from The Ray Powers Hour on New Visions Radio Network, which can be heard here on my website, and the other was with the John and Dan from Behind The Barricade and can be heard here on SoundCloud. In addition I've been interviewed a couple of times on The Pack Show on Fame Music Radio out of South Africa. We couldn't have done that even just a few years ago. Thank you Skype! I can't list all the stations that have been kind enough to add songs from the new cd but check out my Facebook page as I usually add links there when I know about airplay ahead of time.

Couple of items regarding Every Song Is You. We are working on putting together a music video for it and the awesome and talented David Lillich with be directing, filming and editing. We've been figuring out locations and such. Hope to have it for you very soon. The song was also chosen as a Semi-Finalist in the most recent Song of the Year Contest. Always nice to get a little pat on the back for all the hard work. Every Song Is You was written by myself, Jeffery Marshall and Courtney Leigh Heins.

In other news I've added a Special Merchandise page to the website where you can get autographed CD's, limited edition posters and even some jewelry, which I created. The jewelry is very limited quanties and each will come with a download card for one of my singles. Right now there are some butterfly bracelets that I think you will really like either for yourself or as a gift. Items will change as I make more. And hey, it's a great way to help me get that video made...subtle, I know. ;-)

That's all the news for now. No Longer Broken is available at iTunes and CD Baby, physical copies of the cd are available at CD Baby where you can actually speak to a real person here in the US by calling 1-800-Buy-My-CD! Don't forget to leave a rating or short review wherever you purchase or listen to my music as it greatly increases the changes of my music being discovered by others. Here is the link to my Facebook Music Page if you'd like to join me there. Be sure to choose "get notifications" if you do so you don't miss anything. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube page as well.

As always, I am so very grateful for your support. Debbie

Debbie's New Year, New Music News! Jan 2016

Debbie's New Year, New Music News Jan 2016 On January 13, 2016 Hi guys!

Hope everyone had a lovely holiday! I was busy putting some new music stuff together for you, so here it is!

First, there are some new music videos up on my YouTube page. There are two full-length videos from the cd release concert held at Ultimate Studios of the songs No Longer Broken and Sugar & Rain. Joining me on these songs are Jeffery Marshall and Carla Buffa. Big thanks to Victor Salazar who filmed and edited the videos.

I also created a new cd cover video for the song Every Song Is You. In addition to my YouTube page you can now watch all my videos on the new video page on my website. I've added more photos on the photo page too. Check it out!

The other big news is an interview in No Depression, which just went up on their site. I'm very excited to be profiled by such a respected magazine. You may remember they gave No Longer Broken a great review, which lead to the article. Very grateful for their continued support.

If you missed last month's on-air interview on Rainrock Radio, I've created a section on my website in the music page where you can listen to it and other radio interviews I do. There are more coming up soon so check my calendar page or Facebook page for all latest.

Lastly, I want to mention our next show is coming up on Saturday, February 20th at the Universal Bar & Grill across from Universal Studios. Joining me that night will be Jeff along with my other favorite guitarist John DePatie. It's been several years since the three of us have done a show together and I'm looking forward to playing with the guys again. Will probably have a special guest as well.

No Longer Broken is available at iTunes and CD Baby, physical copies of the cd are available at CD Baby actually speak to a real person here in the US by calling 1-800-Buy-My-CD!

Debbie's Christmas is almost here music news!

Hi Kids,

I can't believe Christmas is coming up next week! Just want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Years! Sorry, I'm a week late for Hanukkah! Oy Vey! Hope no matter how you celebrate this year you have a wonderful holiday.

There's a lot of news coming in the New Year: more interviews, more music, more videos, more shows, all for the new CD No Longer Broken. I've added an interview section to the website where you can hear some of the radio interviews I've been doing and of course, the No Longer Broken CD release show and interview video is up as well.

If you need a great stocking stuffer you still have time to get a copy of No Longer Broken just by calling 1-800-Buy-My-CD and talking to the nice people at CD Baby, or you can order from my page on their website. Of course, it is available at iTunes as well. All four of my Christmas songs are available as well. Wow, that was subtle, right? :-p

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season! As always, I am so grateful for your support! dh

Debbie's Big Music News Dec 2015

Hi Kids, Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Exclusive Video for the new cd No Longer Broken: The really big news is an exclusive video interview and behind the scenes look at my new cd No Longer Broken. In July we held a cd release party and acoustic concert at Ultimate Studios, Inc. to introduce the new cd and joining me that night for the concert were producer/co-writer/guitarist Jeffery Marshall, Carla Buffa and Aubrey Richmond. A few weeks later I went back to film an interview and after a lot of work by videographer and editor Victor Salazar and myself the video is up on my official YouTube channel and my website for you to enjoy. It moves pretty quick and you get a taste of 5 of the songs from the cd along with me discussing how it all came together. Plus you get to hear about how a 7 year old spent her time listening to the Johnny Cash prison records - who doesn't want to know about that?! This video and the cd release show would not have happened without one of my favorite guys Charlie Waymire of Ultimate Studios along with an assist by Federico Angel and everyone else who helped and was there that night. Please take a look, suscribe to my YouTube page, if you haven't already, and feel free to share the link to the video!

No Longer Broken and all my cds make great Christmas gifts! Don't forget my Christmas singles too! Oh, yeah, she had to go there! It is Cyber Monday after all! You can hear ALL my songs before buying on my website. You can get CD's through CD Baby or by calling 1-800-Buy-My-CD and speaking to an actual person located here in the US. Thank you!

Debbie's Music News Oct 2015

Lots of good things have happened since the new cd No Longer Broken was released in June and lots of good things to come, so I wanted to give you an update on some of them. We held a cd release party and acoustic show in July at Ultimate Studios, Inc. and we filmed the show portion for some upcoming videos, including an extended promo video for the cd. It was a great night with friends and many of the people who had worked on the cd. We discussed how we wrote many of the songs along with how the cd came together. I returned to Ultimate Studios in Sept to do a video interview, which will be part of the promo. Along with the promo video we will have music videos of selected songs from the night. I've been working with Victor Salazar, he recorded all the video for the show and the interview and is editing it all together for us, and it has been a pleasure working with him! Of course, none of this would have happened without the help of one of my favorite people Charlie Waymire of Ultimate Studios, Inc. who hosted the cd release at his beautiful studio and made sure that everything ran smoothly along with assistance from Federico Angel. The videos should be available soon. Pix from that night are up on my website and facebook page.

We are very grateful for some great reviews we've been receiving for the new cd. So far there have been reviews in No Depression, The Pulse Magazine and Music Connection. There will also be an upcoming interview in No Depression.

Speaking of interviews, I recently did a radio interview with Will Stenner, which aired on Splash Radio out of the UK. You can listen and even download the interview along with the two songs they aired here on Will's site Stenner Productions. Splash Radio has been very kind to us over the last couple of years.

We've already received quite a bit of airplay all over the world and honestly the best and quickest way to keep up with who is playing us is on my facebook page where I always post when I know airplay is happening.

One last piece of news is we have a show coming up on Wednesday, November 3 at Universal Bar & Grill, on Lankershim right across from Universal Studios. Joining me for this extended acoustic set will be producer/co-writer/guitarist Jeffery Marshall along with our good friend Carla Buffa on guitar and backup vocals. As a extra treat my good friend and co-writer Courtney Leigh Heins will be playing the set before us with David Lillich and Bryan Dobbs. Courtney co-wrote two of the songs on my new cd and Dobbs played on one of them, and Courtney and David were married this year so it's a big old family affair! We really hope you will join us. Courtney goes on at 8pm and we go on at 9pm and the music continues after us. Show is only $5.

No Longer Broken is available at iTunes, and CD Baby, physical copies of the cd are available at CD Baby where you can actually speak to a real person by calling 1-800-Buy-My-CD! How cool is that?!

I would be really grateful if you would please be sure to leave a rating or short review especially on iTunes even if you purchased the cd elsewhere. It's ok, you can do that, I promise. It really helps increase the chances of having my music discovered by others. Also, here's the link to my Facebook Music Page if you'd like to join me there.

Thanks again for all your support, Debbie
