Deborah will be playing her original songs from her latest records as well as newer, yet-to-be released material from 2020-2021 with additional accompaniment on guitar, harmonica and dobro

Place-based and rooted in practice, Deborah’s lyric-driven and soul-wise music draws on folk, rock, and Americana. She’s released several collections of critically noted original music, including the 2013 release, Little Bird (produced by Art Khu and described as “a masterful piece of work”), 2016’s 7-song CD, Beauty Everywhere, and her latest, the 11-song collection The Department of the West (2019). “…what Americana music is all about for me; imaginative, cinematic, informative and last but not least … entertaining.” — The Rocking Magpie

Along with her solo musical work, she co-founded the band Bay Station and its “Love the Bay” Music & Sailing video series with Kwame Copeland; founded and edits a neighborhood ‘zine The Bay Station Eagle, and has penned essays and fiction for publications including No Depression, Common Ground, and “The Thinking Girl’s Guide to Enlightenment.”
