About Debra Lyn:

Debra Lyn originally hails from upstate New York. Her musical interest was sparked and nurtured by her grandmother, Betsy Lewis, who was also a performer during the World War II era. Betsy gave Debra her first guitar when she was twelve years old and encouraged her to learn to play and sing. Before too long Debra was playing music around the campfire, entering talent contests and performing with local country music bands.

Along with her band Cimmeron, Debra won the Northeast Country Music Association’s “Sunrise Award” for best new country act. Cimmeron went on to release the Indie single “My Heart’s True To You,” co-written by Debra, which received airplay on country radio stations from New York to California.

In 2002, Debra and her progressive bluegrass band, Soulgrass, completed their self titled CD. Two singles, including an original written by Debra, were released in the U.S. on the “Prime Cuts of Bluegrass” compilation CD. Nearly 400 stations reported airplay for these singles. The Soulgrass version of “Love Please Come Home” was also added to the playlist for cable television’s “Music Choice.” Soulgrass performed at numerous venues throughout the southeastern U.S. such as Nashville, Tennessee’s famous Station Inn. Debra and Soulgrass were also featured performer’s on many live radio and television programs in Kentucky, Indiana, North Carolina and Tennessee.

When Debra decided to get back to her “country” roots, she teamed up with Jeff Silverman, of Palette Productions which at that time was located in Los Angeles, California to produce her “I Can’t Remember To Forget You” CD. Together Debra and Jeff have written and produced 10 songs for her CD as well as the holiday song, “Save the Mistletoe For Me.” To quote Stacy’s Music Row Report, in Nashville, “With the right exposure, ”Save The Mistletoe For Me” could be a perennial Christmas hit.”

Joe Ross

Alluring, rhythmically-enticing album
Playing Time - 28:10 -- Back in 2001, I became acquainted with Debra Lyn's singing and songwriting with her Kentucky-based group called "Soulgrass" that presented contemporary bluegrass with elements of soul, R&B, rock, country, and folk. At the time, it became very evident that Debbie is a prolific singer-songwriter whose expressive songs about relationships have a strong country feel. Now Debra Lyn has a new EP, "I Can't Remember To Forget You," with seven new country songs that she wrote or co-wrote with her encouraging husband and the album's producer, Jeff Silverman of Nashville's Palette Studios. Debra's lead and harmony vocals convey an earthy sensuality. And their choice of instrumentation is much more country than bluegrass now, but they still realize the potential for acoustic instruments to convey certain moods in individual songs. The banjo and fiddle in "So Long Since September,"for example, impart a slight rustic mountain feel to a contemporary storyline. Jeff's guitar, bass and background vocals are solid in the multi-layered sound that also incorporates many other top session players -- Randy Kohrs (banjo, Dobro, vocals), Dave Pearlman (Dobro, steel guitar), Ken Lewis, Nate Morton or Jim Haydon (drums, percussion), James Mitchell (electric guitar), Mike Johnson (steel guitar), Gabriel Katona (piano), and Steve Stokes (fiddle, vocals). I would encourage artists looking for new material to closely peruse her lyrics and melodies on this rhythmically-enticing album. I'm sure you'll find some alluring songs that you can relate to. A song like "I Know" even has the accessible melody, bright lyricism and modulating arrangement that could make it a pop hit. (Joe Ross, Roseburg, OR.)
