Album Notes
Wry musical humorist Deb Seymour has a generally zany outlook on life!

Whether melodically extolling the virtues of her tomcat, tangoing with extra-terrestrials, or going out of her way to avoid beer, Seymour is an extremely busy woman! Her lyrics and music are habit-forming and, by the end of her performance, you too will be viewing the world through Seymour-colored glasses.

Album also features local Boulder, CO favorites mandolinists Tim O'Brien (Hot Rize) and Drew Emmit (Leftover Salmon)
bassists Mike Fitzmaurice (Colcannon) & Peter Stokes (Poisoned Squirrels), drummer Jim Velnosky (Poisoned Squirrels) and percussion whiz Washboard Chaz (Himself)

Produced by Mark Geisler
Recorded at Audios Amigos

Steve Knopper- Boulder Daily Camera

A Christine Lavin-like AbilityTo Turn a Clever Joke Into a Universal Folk Song
The KGNU "Blues Lady", judging by her lyrics, has a genuinely kooky outlook on life,whether she is ripping conformity ("I Hate Beer" or wishing for a Martian lover ("The Martian Tango Love Song"). What makes this disc more than a novelty, though, is Seymour's Christine Lavin-like ability to turn a clever joke into a universal folk song. Thanks to local side people like mandolinist Tim O'Brien and members of Leftover Salmon, Seymour's songs steer aptly between quirky folk, upbeat Irish music and jazz.

Michael Roberts, Westword Magazine (Sept. 1992)

At times Deb Seymour's "Martian Tangos" comes across as overly zany-too much perkiness can take its toll. But a closer listen to the release proves that Seymour can do more than relate wacky tales about contact lenses and her hatred of beer. Folk music that won't bore even the antifolkies among you!

Dirty Linen Magazine

Better Than Christine Lavin
It would easy to pigeonhole Seymour as a Christine Lavin clone, but her range of material is far more diversified. Using bluegrass, Celtic and Latin motifs in her witty songs, she pokes fun at topics like her hatred of beer and nuclear fallout.

The title track is a love song about her disappointment with human livers and the search for an unearthly consummation of her passion featuring Tim O'Brien on mandolin, backing up Seymour's acoustic guitar.

In addition to humorous songs, Seymour does a nice blues number ("Black Widow Blues") and an Irish jig ("Hagan's Favorite"). The jig is a dynamic work with Seymour providing outstanding mandolin and Mark Geisler on hammered dulcimer and violin.
