2016 has been an epically awful year for many people. I've had multiple bereavements, very close family and friends have had multiple bereavements and other awful life events to deal with.
The tracks on this album have been written for people who have died, for people whose lives have been greatly affected by those losses and for the people I love dearly when I have been lost for spoken words to provide comfort.
This album has been written alongside an album I wrote for my wonderful, brave, inspiring and hilariously funny friend Dave earlier this year who died from Motor Neurone Disease in September 2016.
Album Review, December 2016:
What people say about Debs music:

Simon Raymonde, Bella Union Records

‘…artwork of immense depth..…a brilliant performance, an emotional kaleidoscope of rare beauty’
David Klavins, Pianist & Piano Maker
Creator of the Una Corda, M370 and M450 pianos
'Dark, cinematic, and imbued with a miasma of mysterious melancholy, it conjures up moonlight walks and more than a hint of Edgar Allen Poe'
Andy Von Pip, Von Pip Musical Express
'...you realise how this music has elevated your sympathy, for in the silence that follows, you feel that the sound is still there, like a phantom limb.'
Tom Hollingworth, NARC Magazine
'It’s the sort of stuff where you'd just want to put on a
whole album and let yourself be part of that space'
Kathryn Tickell, Musician/Amazing Radio
'Quiver lipped acoustic folk from Newcastle'
Time Out, London
