A Kuranda based singer/ song writer.
Celtic harp and mandolin and a captivating voice take you on anamazing musical journey. With original numbers as well as traditional folk and contemporary.
Debbie's parents immigrated from Ireland hence the Celtic feel to her music.
She has a professonally trained voice and has been singing since she was 3years old. Debbie started playing in her first band in 1992, a country rock covers band, with a regular gig at Tallarook in country Victoria. Thus the mandolin was introduced and has become a strong feature of Debbie's performance.
Being a single Mum of 3 children, left very little time for a musical career, so Debbie worked as a nurse for many years, but still had some cameo performances at Festivals ie: Fiddlers Convention, Melbourne, Nariel creek Folk festival, Snowy Mountains and The Festival of the lakes, The Entrance. Plus other performances for the Irish community around Sydney.
Debbie was also in a duo, Deb & the Moonbear, they played in the Cairns area and had a couple of songs in The Top of the Trops.( Number 2 for May 2012.)
Debbie has performed at The Tablelands folk festival 2013 and is a regular at Wallaby Creek music festival, with both onstage performance and amazing harp instrumentals for the morning yoga sessions
Debbie was selected for the directors cut of Australia's got talent 2016 and was one of 150 act to perform at Her Majesty's theatre Melbourne
Inspired by a Celtic upbringing, a lover of good songs and song writers, Debbie's clear, pure, haunting voice will take you on a musical journey that will have you joining in and wanting more.
