Live album – video sneak peek

I’m so excited to share a little snippet from my upcoming live album.  I guess this is what happens when you record in front of an audience…  #DebbieDoOver

This song is my own twist of a sappy love duet when someone does something wrong, and both people are sorry.  For example, this song performed by Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow.  I got a little writing help from my buddy Dave Beck back in my New York days.

The full song will be on the album.  Promise.  :)


LIVE ALBUM = RECORDED.  I can’t believe it’s over!  The whole night at Empty Sea Studios was amazing, and I really can’t put it into words.

I couldn’t have done it with out the support of my friends, family, and fans.  A big huge thank you to the incredible lineup of musicians who added their myriad talents to the performance (Gabriel Wolfchild Julia Massey, Amanda Sue Winterhalter Mya Byrne, Grace Yoo, Matt Hart, Greg Coladarci, and Aimee Zoe).  We laughed, we cried, we laughed some more, I did a few Debbie-Do-Overs.  The album won’t be out for a bit, but keep checking back for videos and other fun stuff.  For now, here’s a few photos from the night.

Thanks to all the support I received during my Kickstarter campaign to record a LIVE album, I reached my goal 1 week early, and SOLD OUT the show which takes place on March 14th.

Gabriel Wolfchild (ahem… he’s on NBC’s The Voice this season, #nobigdeal #teamxtina) and the incomparable Julia Massey will be opening up the show.  I’ll also be joined by a slew of talented musicians including Amanda Sue Winterhalter, Grace Yoo, Matt Hart (The Local Strangers), Mya Byrne, and Greg Coladarci.  Greg produced my first 2 albums, and I’m so delighted he will be here for the 3rd!

As an artist, I get  really excited when just one person relates to a song I wrote.  So to be supported by so many was truly overwhelming and I am really grateful and indebted to you.  I hope the album makes you happy once it’s all recorded, wrapped up in a neat little package, and out in the world.

Kickstarter to record a LIVE album!! 2/4/15 – 3/5/15

I am so very excited to announce that I am finally going to record a third album – and that album will be recorded LIVE on March 14th, 2015 at Empty Sea Studios in Seattle, WA.

I created a Kickstarter campaign to help offset the costs of the recording, CD replication, promotion, and design.  There are lots of great rewards, including being in the audience the night of the show!!  Opening up the night are my good friends Julia Massey and Gabriel Wolfchild.

If you’ve ever been to a live show, you know a lot of my performance involves comedy, off the cuff banter, bloopers and the like.  A lot of my songs are funny, and recording them in a studio wouldn’t capture the organic nature of the songs, and most importantly the audience reaction.  I’ve been wanting to do this project for quite some time, and YOU get to be part of it! And, best of all – if you can’t make the show, it will be streamed live on the web!

Contributions of any size make a world of difference.  I know it is a big deal to ask people for money, and I truly would not able able to do it without you.  I am so excited to be able to share these songs in their purest and most raw form.


New year, new album, new things

I am so excited about this year for so many reasons.  The biggest, is that I am getting set to record a brand new album (see what I did there?).  And you can be a part of it, including the live recording! Check back for details in a few weeks, or just go for the gusto and sign up for my mailing list. I am so excited to finally be able to share my new material. Exclamation point!

Also, a cool thing happened.  One of my songs, Kindly Remove, is in a TED-Ed video.  You know, as in TED Talks.  It’s a cool animation about Albert Einstein‘s miracle year. It got over 20,000 views on the first day it was posted, so not too shabby!  Check it out:

That’s all I got… for now. Happy new year!
