Review from Toronto
91.1 LISTEN LIVE DIAL
APRIL 4, 2010
"One of the best radio stations in the world—JAZZ.FM91"
I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I'm a supporter of a great jazz station we have in this town - Jazz Fm. I bought time to do a
half-hour radio show during the last fund-raising drive for the station. I was in recording it last night.
Yes, this does have something to do with you. I have been driving professionally for 30 years in Toronto, so driving was the theme for my show. My closing song was the classic driving song 'Route 66'. I bought your version from iTunes and used it to close my show.
Just wanted you to know I gave you a plug on a jazz station that
goes worldwide, for free, over the Internet and around Northeast New York state and Ontario on the FM (91.1) dial. It is scheduled to air on www.jazz.fm (click on the listen live button) on April 4, 2010 @ 10:00 pm. Thanks for your time to read this long message. I wish you all the best with your music.

"I enjoyed your "take" on all the old standards that I've known for forever, and that have been "covered" SO many times by SO many artists; but you manage to do something... the word I think of is "fresh"... Your stylization is unique, while being free and easy... and it isn't easy to do make those oldies sound "new", but, again, you really have a unique "way" about your presentation that is most enjoyable. Your love of what your doing really comes through, too. "
I am a brazilian lover music who likes My Funny Valentine very, very much. I have a kind of collection of this beautiful music which has been recognized by Guinness World of Records. I bought the music at iTunes and I liked very much your interpretation with the piano. This song is the version number 1502 of my "collection" of My Funny Valentine.
" Deborah is a hot number when it comes to moving you with her soft, sexy voice. What a talent! I first heard her perform on the Carnival Cruise Line Elation. I asked her to sing at my on-board birthday party and much to my surprise, she accepted. What a treat! She gave me her first CD, Cold Wind, which I play on my Power PC as I write. I've been a following fan of hers ever since. When she came to Santa Monica, I caught her performance at the Bob Burns Piano Bar. Boy, was that a night! If you ever get an opportunity to see her perform, you'll become a fast fan, too. I can't wait for her next CD. There's no one like her when it comes to singing torch songs. No one can touch her sound or style. "
" Deborah shares a part of herself and she has fun with it. There is an energy between her and the audience. She is doing what she loves and has a sense of purpose about it. My Mom and I have enjoyed watching you live and listening to your CD all the time. I think you are very talented and you bring joy to my heart. Keep at it. You are already a success in my book and the best is yet to come."

Thank you for keeping me on your email list. I do not get to hear you sing very often, due to my heavy work schedule, but when I do, I hear your incredible growth. It is AMAZING what you have done to develop your voice. You just get better and better, more authentic and warmer, every time I hear you. You went from a "good" sounding voice to a stylish, warm, intimate and emotionally moving delivery. I am in awe of what you have accomplished. Congrats to you and whomever is coaching you! It encourages me to get out there and try again and work toward improvement -something I have not done in years and years. Looking forward to seeing and hearing you again.

" Debe's first CD which includes two songs of her own reflect her sentiment as well as her ability to express her feelings in an intimate relaxed style. This talent finds a perfect compliment in her natural, fresh and endearing voice with the necessary upbeat that makes the listener not only enjoy but also identify with the song."
