Deb's version of Al Green's
Combine nuanced and smart songwriting, resonant nightingale vocals, accomplished and original guitar stylings, and a fresh, stunning stage presence; and you get Deb Pasternak.
Artistically, Deb is defined only by her instruments Đ guitar and voice. Her music itself is a micro-encyclopedia of styles; reflecting an intelligence infused with a range of traditions. And while the traditions on which she bases her music are familiar to us all, Pasternak is her own musician Đ trademarked by her own sound.
DebŐs writing conveys a truth that many of us already know, but havenŐt heard before. One finds oneself identifying with the various personas of her songs - a homeless woman with a drug addiction, a sailor ready to face the storm, or a survivor giving testimony to life. DebŐs performance appears to give these characters life, and in turn, these characters give an insight to a universality we feel. DebŐs performance is defined by this refreshing authenticity.
PasternakŐs reputation precedes her. Her music is lovely, it is compelling, it is powerful. And as more people listen, more audiences are discovering their connection to her music.
Listen to the recording. Read the lyrics. Contact Deb if you have any questions about her work, and do not hesitate to contact Dane Street Artists for more information about Deb Pasternak.
