The beauty of Deb's music is no cliched formulas - each song is refreshingly unique. Some tunes are down-home fresh with the distinctive feel of Midwest rock; others diverge into blues or have a distinctly Latin feel.

Biography

"Music has always been and will always be part of my soul" Deb grew up in a small town in rural Michigan. From a young age, she loved music and had a natural gift as a percussionist. "For as long as I can remember, I was banging out some kind of rhythm on pots, pans, tables...even my brother! I was always getting in trouble for making to much noise." All the noise paid off when Deb was selected to showcase her talents with both the symphonic and jazz band associated with Blue Lake Fine Arts in Europe. She received a bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan, majoring in Music Education. A Consummate percussionist, Deb went on to become proficient in stringed instruments and vocals. In her spare time, Deb taught marching band, percussion ensembles, and started her own drum studio. She also sang lead and wrote originals as she played with such bands as The Country Star Lighters, Midnight Fantasy, and Spectacle. With the group White Light, Deb toured throughout the Midwest, co-writing and performing the group's songs. "This being my first solo CD, I went to Mr. Buddy Greco, a family friend, for input. After hearing 'Are You My Angel' Mr Greco was excited, saying "I just can't get that music out of my head!" I am thrilled to have a mucisian of Mr Greco's calibur involved in my project. Mr Greco jumped into the "Deb Barber" project with both feet, not only as her manager and co-producer, but also with his mastery at the keyboards, as demonstrated throughout the CD. Deb Barber's music can be described as powerful, sensual, and emotional. Her outstanding talent, combined with her striking good looks, and visible sense of humor, brings a subtle yet sultry energy to the stage. "I am a firm believer in the premise that the energy you put forth is what you get back. This CD was created in an aura of love and peace - that is what I wish to share with everyone enjoying my music."

Lyrics

I Wanna Know Who You Are

Written By: Deb Barber

I had a dream last night.
You appeared in the light of the night.
A vision of love.
Such a wonderful sight
Sent from above
Mmmm Sent from above

I couldn't get you off of my mind
I couldn't get you out of my head
Are you someone from a past life?
Or are you someone I will meet in the end?

Ooh baby show me
Ooh baby tell me who you are
ooh baby show me
Tell me who you are

I wanna know who you are
I wanna know who you are-oh yeah
I wanna know who you are
I wanna know who you are-oh yeah
oh oh oh yeah

I can feel your heartbeating in night when your close to me.
I can see your silhouette on the wall when your looking at me.
Looking at you.
Looking at me.
Looking at you.

Ooh baby show me.
Ooh baby tell me who you are
Ooh baby show me
Tell me who you are

I wanna know who you are
I wanna know who you are-oh yeah
I wanna know who you are
I wanna know who you are-oh yeah
I wanna know who you are
oh oh oh yeah
I wanna know who you are

I wanna know you and show you
touch every part of you in the night
I wanna know you and show you
touch every part of you in the night

I wanna know you are
I wanna know who you are-oh yeah
I wanna know who you are
I wanna know who you are-oh yeah

Comes Right Back To You

Written By: Deb Barber

Take a good look around you.
Look what you've drawn in.
What we give out -
Returns like a boomerang.
In thought, in form, or in person.

Everything you say
Everything you do '
Comes right back to you.
Everything you think
Everything you breathe -
Comes right back to you.

Everything you are
Everything you'll be -
Comes right back to you.
Everything you think
Everything you see -

Comes right back to you
Comes right back to you

Take a good look around you.
Is that what you want to be?
What you draw in
Is a mirror of you, can't you see?
We can choose right now to be different.

It's up to you to change.
It's up to you to change your ways.
It's up to you to change.
It's up to you to change your ways...
