Deborah's musical life began at the age of 5 in Chattanooga, Tennessee in a very musically oriented family....Father played bass, Mom played piano. Piano lessons by Aunt Dot began at age 5 and continued for 5 years. During this time she had the opportunity to play for Sunday School and classroom events. The passion was put on hold. A nursing career and family took precedence, but as opportunity allowed and the purchasing of a Balwin piano in early adulthood, the spark was renewed. After 1 and one half years of practice, research for royalties and much encouragement and support from husband and children, she produced "Expedition: Tranquility" which was her very own expedition. It has been described as "soulful," "symphonic" and "soothing." and was a venture of a lifetime!!!
