"You Left Me Standing"

While it is safe to wager that most musicians create from a personal place, very few draw inspiration from an event as horrific as being kidnapped as a child. Deanna Pino was abducted by her father as a child, spending many years on the run before being reunited with her mother. "You Left Me Standing" not only documents that part of her life, but tells a story of courage and bravery. This is the story of empowerment and deciding to move forward. This song-cycle is at time heart wrenching but ultimately inspiring. Her gorgeous sometimes-Angelic voice, often accompanied by little more than an acoustic guitar, carries the narrative. It is a brave and masterful work. -- Jeff Weiss, Miles of Music (self-released) - Miles Of Music


Debut CD, "You Left Me Standing"



It took eighteen years for me to be reunited with my mother. Kidnapped by my dad at the age of six, the consequences and impact of being abducted didn’t take its toll until I was in my early twenties. Unraveling at the seams from years of being held as an emotional hostage, I suffered through many years of heartache and darkness. Crawling out from underneath the broken pieces of my life, I slowly started to build a new beginning by examining my inner psyche when I discovered Buddhism, which took me from just surviving to thriving.

In 1999 I moved from New York City to Los Angeles for a change of pace and although I came from a musical theatre background, I discovered my love for songwriting and knew I had to pursue this new way of communicating my ideas and perspectives. It has only been through my hardships and triumphs that I am able to make a contribution to society and the world around me. And that’s why I am very excited to share my debut CD, “You Left Me Standing” with you, which is available now through CD Baby and Dig Station.
