Biography

Currently writing and producing for The Singer's Studio, performing and training, this is not the typical bio for Deborah...BUT she didnt want the same ol' same ol'.........

"I really just want to write, perform and sing great music, both original and cover. Where it all started, I don't know. I did not want to play outside or with dolls, I wanted to learn all movements and harmonies to The Manhattan Transfer's Operator.

I realize it is such a privilege and honor to be musical, and do what I love doing. I am humbled and just so grateful, but try to be a great business woman as well. 

Who can say anymore what sets artists apart? If I am really honest and give you a glimpse into my genuine soul, I want to be Carole King, with a shot of Carly and James, and a twist of Karen Carpenter, Norah, and the likes of those giants. I want to write along the same lines as Fleetwood Mac, Chicago, The Carpenters, The Eagles, Ellington, Armstrong, Van Halen (what?!), BB King, Bonnie Raitt, and the list goes on. I want to produce like Quincy, David Foster, and I want to sing like Ella, Eva, Dinah, Diana, Norah, Whitney, and don't forget the harmonies of The Transfer.

I have a special thing for working with non-profits, mom events, kids stuff, soldiers and families...I love helping them make money, raise awareness, and there are several causes near and dear to my heart, but I am open to helping any in need. I also love writing for other singers, whether a special solo hit, a group, a composition for film and T.V., and I am producing vocals in the studio.

Lyrics

Baby (Caroline's Song)

Written By: D.Liles/cc 11/2003

Baby there's so much I want to tell you
Baby, there's so much I want to tell you
Like how much you mean to me
How you came and set my soul so free..and
Baby, there's so much I want to give you
Baby, there's so much I want to give you
Like hope and honestly...

The House With the Octagon Shaped Window

Written By: D.Liles/cc nov 2003 - big swing

On the street where I live is the oddest little hut
With the strangest doors, and windows and walls...
On the street where I live I met the neatest boy
With the biggest heart, I swear I could fall...
..the house with the octgaon shaped windows....with more ways to see into you...

Who Will Love You More

Written By: DLiles

Will she hold your hand
Always understand
Will she make the wrong things right
Theres one question on my mind and I think its high time
I wanna know, who will love you more

Good Girl (When Will I Be Loved style)

Written By: DLiles

You know Im a good girl
You know I dont do those thngs
You know Im a good girl
If this is love youre doing the wrong thing
I know youre frustrated but its only our 3rd date boy
If youre frustrated, if youre in pain
Dont look to this girl for anything

Youre hands are sneakin sneakin in places the dare not go
.....
