Singer - Piano Player - Songwriter

There is so much to say about Debbie Kuhl’s CD, “Original.” It starts with the happy energy of the cover art, and continues, with a witty surprise, on the CD itself, but the magic happens when you hit the play button. With her angelic and evocative voice, Debbie Kuhl eases her way into your heart. She takes you on a journey of innocence, survival, triumph, and love. These 20 songs, with their memorable hooks, musical references, and honest lyrics, explore the highs and lows of a beautiful human heart. The lean production adds to the intimacy, as if Debbie is singing just to the listener. Stand out songs include: “Like Delilah,” “Where the Mockingbird Sings,” “My Boy Home,” and “Ruth.” But, “Last Call” may be a perfect song. From the first traveling keyboard strokes of “Doesn’t the World Turn Differently” to the last breathy lyric of “Wine to Water,” this collection of “Original” songs will hold you close. And really, isn’t that what you want from a CD?   Mark Negrete, El Paso, Tx
