ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jumping nimbly between jazz, blues, Latin, folk & pop genres, master musical storyteller Deb Seymour's songs range from a gambling Cupid, wishing for the perfect man, staying out of "Trouble" and love lost on a tropical windstorm... all while still "Not Out of the Woods" "Cupid's Wheel" sparkles with clean production values and social awareness.

I Sure Like This Album
This second album from Seattle singer-songwriter Deb Seymour sparkles with clean production values, well thought-out arrangements and high caliber musical support. Well-recorded and engineered at Ironwood Studios in Seattle by Jay Follette and produced by David Pascal, this album contains some fine new songs:

"Twelve Shades Of Blue" is a pretty and delicate country waltz, beautiful in its straightforward simplicity and intimate sadness. It has a fell of a country classic.

"Cloudy Day" has more of a jazz standard feel, sung with Ms. Seymour with a vulnerability reminiscent of Billie Holiday. Daniel Barry's fine trumpet work is the centerpiece of a tasteful small-combo arrangement that gently swings to the beat provided by Will Dowd on drums and Peter Stokes on bass

"I've Woken Up (From You)" is a more contemporary ballad with a memorable minor melody and a lyric brimming with mixed emotions ("If lightning could strike leaving nothing in its trace, I'd cry a storm for you")

Another favorite has to be "Tropic Winds", with it's gentle Latin rhythm: Deb's soft, almost Astrud Gilbereto-like vocal treatment of this tune underscores the sensual longing it describes. There is an honesty here that is very appealing and Nick Dallett does a fine job on the guitars.

This album is the evidence of Deb's growth both as a writer and singer since the 1992 release of her first album "Martian Tangos" This one has a greater range of feeling and the singing is gentler, yet more confident. Her first album was largely humor, and though there is humor here, too, "Cupid's Wheel" is more introspective. This is a stronger woman. There is fun stuff here as well as social awareness, but the real jewels are the ones that come from the heart.
