Album Notes
Over five years in the making, Debra Lyn’s A Cold Wind Blows is an invitation to experience the vast complexities and stark, simple truths that shape our most intimate relationships, define our deepest emotions, and ultimately determine who we are… and who we aren’t.

It is a vivid snapshot of a marriage rocked by infidelity and addiction, and a gut-wrenching journey into the heart of “a good wife” besieged by pain, anger, helplessness, hate and loss. And yet, astonishingly, this tale is not a tragedy.

Rather, it is a universal anthem of unwavering courage and uncommon strength -- one where the battlefield isn’t joined by men and women, or husbands and wives. This war is utterly within, and ultimate victory or defeat boils down to one question: what does ‘till death do us part mean when the marriage dies, but the love goes on?

The answer is meticulously and masterfully revealed through each track on the wings of a cold wind; sometimes in potent gusts, sometimes in gentle breezes, and always with unforgettable impact.

In addition to Debra Lyn's vocals which have been described as "haunting," and "introspective," the album features some of Nashville's finest musicians, including:

Tim Lorsch (strings/co-producer, co-arranger, co-writer - "With or Without You"): Tim has performed and/or recorded with artists such as Kris Kristofferson, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Lucinda Williams and Goose Creek Symphony. He has produced critically acclaimed records, played on thousands of recordings and has has made contributions to Grammy and Emmy Award winning projects. "A Cold Wind Blows" would not be complete without Tim's emotional and poignant performances.

Matthew Burgess (percussion/drums): Matthew has worked with artists such as Willie Nelson, Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson, Steel Magnolia and Jewel. From a standard drum set to a djembe to a tiny triangle, he brings a sensibility and attention to detail that is uniquely Matthew.

David Flint (acoustic guitars/bouzouki/resonator guitar). David has played with Highway 101, Billy Montana and is a sought after session musician. David's meticulous parts are the bed upon which everything else has been layered and help to set the tone for the album.

Scott Vestal (banjo): Scott was the 1996 International Bluegrass Music Association's Banjo Player of the Year. He was also named 1998 Banjo Player of the Year by the "Bluegrass Now" magazine fan's choice awards. Scott has performed with Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, John Cowan, Tim O'Brien, Ricky Skaggs, Tony Rice, Tim O'Brien, Sam Bush and many others. Scott's banjo performance creates a "Newgrass" feeling for the song "Believe" and truly compliments the rest of the album.

Randy Kohrs (dobro/banjo): Randy recorded, produced and performed on the 2008 Grammy Winning CD, “The Bluegrass Diaries” by Jim Lauderdale. Randy is a sought after session musician and has played on over 500 CDs including projects by Dolly Parton, Tom T. Hall, Sara Evans, The Wreckers & Little Big Town. "I'll Aways Miss the Love I Left Behind" is a remix from Debra's previous release on her "I Can't Remember To Forget You" album. This new version is much more acoustic based and brings Randy's dobro performance front and center where he can be truly be appreciated.

Jeff Taylor (accordion): Jeff's great performance on "Drunken Fool" creates the tongue and cheek barroom atmosphere for this song. Jeff plays regularly as a member of the Nashville based band, the Time Jumpers which is a virtual who’s who of session musicians including artist, Vince Gill. He's appeared many times on the Grand Ole Opry backing numerous artists. Jeff has recorded with Elvis Costello, Paul Simon, Amy Grant, George Strait, The Chieftains, Martina McBride, Vince Gill and Ricky Skaggs. He was a featured artist on the Ricky Skagg’s and Kentucky Thunder "Instrumentals" CD that won a  Grammy in 2007 for Best Bluegrass Album.

Steve Stokes (fiddle): Steve has toured with Josh Turner, John Michael Montgomery and Trace Adkins. "So Long Since September" is the second remix from Debra's "I Can't Remember To Forget You' album. This new version features Steve's Celtic style fiddle performance matched by David Flint on acoustic guitar. This will leave you wanting to hear more!

Tyler Reese (acoustic guitar). Tyler's bluesy guitar playing is featured on Debra's song "Till I'm Gone" and brings an interesting and new flavor / twist to a few other tracks on the album.

Jeff Silverman / Palette (MSP) music - studio - productions: Jeff played bass, additional acoustic guitars and percussion. Jeff’s nearly 40 years of experience in the music industry has included working on Emmy and Grammy-nominated projects. He has also produced, mixed, mastered, co-written, edited and performed on a number of gold, platinum and award-winning projects for artists such as Rick Springfield and Michael Peterson. Jeff is co producer and co-writer of the recently released "From The Vault (A Collection of works by Rick Springfield & Jeff Silverman).” He has also been a staff songwriter at Motown/LA and is the owner operator of Palette (MSP) .

A Cold Wind Blows was produced, arranged, engineered, mixed and mastered by Jeff Silverman at Palette (MSP), Nashville, TN. This is the first full length album released by Palette Records.
