“Timing is everything” You hear that a lot these days! This is how Debra D’ Lane feels about her music!
Debra D’ Lane was born and raised in a rural area. She spent most of her life growing up on a ranch outside of Uvalde, Texas. “When you live out in the middle of nowhere you have to find things to do. I love and chose music. It was and has always been a big part of my life.”
Out on the ranch Debra had access to an ole’ school juke box. “There were many great records on that juke box including Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, George Jones, Hank Williams, Marty Robbins, Tanya Tucker, and many more. I can still see myself standing on top of the pool table, cue stick in hand as my mic singing away to all those great tunes.” It seemed like every aspect of Debra’s life on both sides of her family had something to do with music & dancing. “We were always singing and dancing!”
As time went by Debra and her husband started a family. After raising the kids up to a certain age is when Debra decided to take the next step in her love for music. “When your son says “Mom it’s time” I knew then it was time to get busy!”
Debra has done just that! For the past few years she has been working on many projects including spending lots of time in the recording studio. She just finished up an EP that was produced by Bill Warner of Warner Works in Nashville, Tn. Many of the songs on the EP are written and or co-written by Kirsti Manna aka Songwriter Girl. Debra is also working with Rick Barker, former manager of Taylor Swift, to help guide and mentor her career.
“I feel so truly blessed and grateful to have the opportunity to work with Mr. Bill & Mrs. Kirsti. They are incredibly talented and wonderful people. I am also truly blessed to have the opportunity to work with Mr. Rick Barker, Wow! What a remarkable mentor he is in the Music Industry of today and truly cares about the artist and the path they take.”
Most and foremost Debra D’ Lane appreciates her fans. “It’s amazing to me the responses I receive from my music. It makes my day when my fans take the time out of this busy world we live in to send me emails and messages through my online presence of how my songs affect them. Thank You from the bottom of my heart!
