"Free2B" ~ DOUBLE ALBUM OF ROCK AND DANCE MUSIC!
A BIT OF BACKGROUND:
David Bowie, Prince, Queen (oh, Freddie), Aretha Franklin, AC/DC, Ray Charles, Led Zep, Dolly Parton, Heart, Billie Holiday, Radiohead, The Stones, Stevie Wonder, Bette Midler, Live, Lenny Kravitz and yes, my father, Jimmy Holiday. What do they all have in common? Unparallelled passion, unique artistry, leave it all on the stage style & raw electrifying emotion. These are just a few of the artists that shaped my musical world. Genre never mattered. So, it makes sense that I grew up singing heavier rock & have ended up also loving the world of dance music. Shake your fist or Shake your booty ... as long as you are moved, I am truly satiated!
"Free2B" ~ If you know my music at all - there is often a common thread. Believe ... In ... You! Cuz baby, you are amazing just as you mutha-snuckin are! In your life, You should be Free To Be ... the beautiful, amazing, delicious, uniquely gifted YOU - you were born to be! Oh, yes - I will preach on it!
THE PROJECT & WHAT YA GONNA GET:
You'll get one FULL rock album & one FULL dance album.
20 plus songs in all!! And, yes - I'm saying Album cuz I'm thinking of the days when you got an ALBUM. Not wall to wall 31/2 minute "hits" ~ but, a mystical, musical journey & exploration of who the artist was & what they had to say.
PLUS ... Two Videos!! Yeppers ... You're gonna get 2 videos outta this project. If I happen to get a little extra funding in ... well, the video production is gonna get mo bigger, too !!
I have been CRAZY blessed with playing music with not only some of the most talented people I've ever known but with people I call true friends/family. Hence, they deserve to be paid for their time. The musicians, the studio, the graphics people, the mastering lab, the photographers ~ everyone!
And, that my friends is where you come in. I've done my best to create some uber cool options for you!
Not a lot of cash? Cool ! For 5 Bucks you get TWO full albums. You have a little more green? Well, then come spend the day with me & my special guests in the studio (list of performers & guests below), you have a business you'd like to advertise? Pick up one of the advertising levels.
Lots of yummy items to pick up including Exclusive T-shirts, a Photo Documentary Book & even writing a song with me.
So, have a stroll through the options & see what might tickle your desires.
And ~ please, share, share, share!
Share with your friends, co-workers, family members, your pets, your dentist ~ Everybody! And, please suggest they pick up the double album for a wee little ol' 5 bucks. Between the rock AND the dance music ~ there's bound to be something that gets your blood movin!
SHARING THE JOURNEY:
List of beautifully, talented beings joining me on this project (so far) ...
Core band mates: Jeff Fedak (duh dats my brutha from anutha & writing partner). Orlando Sims, Bryon Holley and Darci Monet.
Special Guests: Levi Kreis, Ty Taylor of Vintage Trouble, Michael Duff, Chris Pierce, Rodger Carter & one of the greatest voices in rock ... oh yes .. Mr. John Waite. And, I'm sure a few more as we move on down the musical highway.
My life thus far has been far from "average". Hah! But, I have so many blessed musical moments ... Growing up in a home with a father who wrote "Put A Little Love In Your Heart" (& so many other hits), opening for KISS, singing backup live for Rod Stewart, being signed to Warner Bros for 4 years which afforded me the opportunity to write with so many amazing people like Jeffrey Steele, Bobby Huff, Tommy Sims, Clif Magness, Marti Frederiksen & Billy Steinberg. Yowza!
Soooooo .... Thank you for taking the time in this busy, busy world of ours to have a look & or listen. Music can change your mood, help you through rough times or be the catalyst for celebration ... our constant eternal friend.
Here's to creating ... Here's to being ... "Free2B" ... anything!
Musical love to you ... Debby

Risks and challenges
Well, I have to be pretty honest here ... the only risk I'd face is not doing "the work" & that ain't gonna happen. I've been in the studio since I was a wee little girl ... I know so many amazing musicians & I LOVE working with them. So, I suppose the only REAL challenge will be getting everyone lined up at the same time to get in there & record. It might take a little maneuvering ... but, it's definitely doable.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
