Deborah has released her sixth recording, Dream & Paint The Sky, to a sold out crowd at the West End Cultural Centre in Winnipeg. Performing with a stellar band of Dan Donahue, Laurie Mackenzie, Boyd Mackenzie and Ilena Zaremba, Deborah presented the new material with stories, songs, video productions and earned well deserved praise for a perfectly wonderful evening. Heather Bishop captured Deborah perfectly...she is a performer who has gathered a loyal following through the years and keeps people anticipating and waiting for new work.

Deborah has also been able to settle into Sandy Hook and manage her massage therapy clinic there. This has meant closing her Winnipeg clinic after 28 years which has meant saying goodbye to so many people who have supported her work over decades. She continues to teach at the Massage Therapy College of Manitoba and presents workshops to a variety of groups and organizations.

Deborah is continuing to write....warming the colder prairie nights with a little guitar, some keyboards and new lyrics to get us through to Spring.

Deborah is a performer for hire.

Press Release - Deborah Romeyn
CD Release: Wednesday, October 22, 2014
Dream & Paint The Sky
"A collection of lullabies for adults, because we need them."

Songs to stir the soul and touch the heart of music lovers of every age

These are lullabies for adults - not to lull to sleep, but to rock and dance you deep into comfort. Rooted in the prairie soil with heart open wide to the prairie sky, Deborah Romeyn takes the listener on a journey into the dark of winter, the comfort of a long-time love, the energy of a new beginning, the gentle lullaby to a newborn to sing away the tears...and more.

Inspired to begin recording her own music by a near-death experience almost 20 years ago, Deborah has teamed up once again with Juno award-winning producer Dan Donahue to release her sixth CD.

"Dan and I are thrilled with Dream & Paint the Sky. These songs have arisen from the melodies I have heard during moments of silence and meditation. I'm hoping this music and these lyrics will take people on the same creative journey that Dan and I have been on these past two years."

Some of the lullabies are soft and gentle (Winter Lullaby, Baby Mine Medley, This is a Lullaby), while others are toe-tapping twists on the genre (Ring My Bell, It's a Fine Line, Walk Against the Wind). You may shed a tear or two, or you might find yourself dancing in the aisles. "Some of these songs are inspired by those wired and tired nights when sleep won't come. I hope some of these lullabies will take the edge off that restlessness that so many of us experience in the wee hours of the morning."

The CD package is a mini work of art by Gimli photographer Linda Vermeulin, who has created an other-worldly Carole King Tapestry feel on the cover, with a sunny prairie field of daisies on the inside.

Deborah's work is often heard on CBC across the country. Her song, "Nothing Like the Freedom", was taken into space by Dr. Roberta Bondar and played on the space shuttle as they orbited the Prairies.
