Dubbed 'a storyteller in the purest sense' by one reviewer, Deborah's songs puncture tiny holes in the curtains beyond which these stories take place. Deborah writes of middle-of-the-night empty bedside realizations. Of cold, Depression-era train rides where escape itself is the destination. How the hum and rumble of the road lend forgiveness to an unforgivingly restless life. About women who will kill themselves in obsessive statements of unrequitted love and those who find salvation in the voices of madness. Of South Dakota windstorms. Seattle winters. The dodge-ball-like quality of life. The beauty of the underground. Where love is openly misunderstood, misconstrued, and laden with impossible expectations. Deborah's trademark melancholia entwines itself in the rootsy, almost train-like, drive of her new band. 'Pacific,' was recorded with Seattle notables, Chris Pugh, Scott Vanderpool, Bryan Learned, and newcomer, Roma Call on violin. Sonically, it bursts out of barren landscapes into chaotic whirls in the turn of a phrase. Deborah's voice harnesses the dynamics of the music as it pulls and pushes between cracked whisper and quivery wail. Deborah has released three CDs on her own label, Wanderingeye Records. She also appears on the recently released EP from Seattle techno downbeaters, Saba.
