Country singer and entertainer Debbie Anthony shares handcrafted songs with vibrant melodies and heartfelt lyrics that tell tales about lasting love, faithfulness, family and strength that endures through life’s bittersweet ebbs and flows. Her dynamic recordings showcase her soulful, honeyed voice that melts over a bed of lush instrumentation featuring guitars, strings, piano, bass and rolling rhythms. A playful and deeply-connected performer, she delivers truth through energetic live shows, supported by her dynamic band. Able to deliver spirit-driven messages about real life through both reflective ballads and up-tempo tunes, Debbie channels her wisdom, sass and positivity through every note.
A lifelong lover of music, Debbie began singing her heart out as soon as she could talk, reveling in the warm tone of vocalists like Karen Carpenter and their ability to convey genuine feeling. She continued to fine-tune her craft through church groups and other ensembles as she evolved as an artist and performer. Her passion for country music and its realness and openness was ignited the moment she heard Shania Twain, and Debbie felt a kinship to her and other strong women like Martina McBride and Wynonna Judd. After earning a degree in music from North Central University in Minneapolis, Debbie focused on raising a family, satisfying her passion for singing through contests and karaoke.
With an empty nest, Debbie took control of her lifelong dream and launched her musical career in 2015. Her husband Mitch, prolific writer of 14 books in the financial services industry, tried his hand at songwriting and wrote the poignant song “Faithful” for her to celebrate their milestone anniversary. After rave reviews, she decided to record it in her hometown of Rochester alongside producer and songwriter Tim Hildebrandt, who formerly owned a production studio in Nashville. This successful collaboration led the team to write five more songs, which combined became Debbie’s sparkling debut album, All Over Again. She celebrated its release in front of a packed house at Rochester Civic Theatre in January 2017.
Debbie is currently bringing her authentic message and genuine personality to country radio with her debut single, "Lucky in Love." With the support of renowned country label SSM Nashville, "Lucky in Love" is at #8 on the Main Country Chart (*New Music Weekly Chart). Lucky in Love is currently #6 on the Top 30 Indie Chart and #5 on both the Main Internet and Indie Internet Charts. After being released in the United Kingdom, "Lucky in Love" reached #17 on the Hotdisc Top 40 country chart.
A seasoned performer with a relatable, authentic message for all ages, Debbie has performed in Nashville, at corporate and specialty events across the country, and for audiences of as many as 15,000. She has also been an internationally-featured artist on ReverbNation, and her single, "Faithful" will be featured on an upcoming episode of the popular TLC program, Say Yes to the Dress.
Dedicated to giving back to her local community, Debbie mentors young artists and performs for and participates in fundraisers for organizations like the Ronald McDonald House and the Boys & Girls Club.
Debbie is overjoyed to have her “encore career” in full swing, and she will be promoting her debut single as well as working on new music. Debbie Anthony’s debut album All Over Again is available now.
