Classic country singer and entertainer Debbie Anthony shares handcrafted songs with vibrant melodies and heartfelt lyrics that tell tales about everlasting 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 backing band, Level Best. 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.
Her latest single, “Lucky in Love” is an up-beat, good-time country track inspired by the journey of her almost 30-year marriage. The track was co-written by her husband, Mitch Anthony and Tim Hildebrandt, who also produced it. “Lucky in Love” has already made a splash on the UK country charts, reaching #18 after just two weeks.
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 singing habit 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, a prolific songwriter and the writer of 14 books in the financial services industry, wrote the song “Faithful” for her to celebrate their 25th 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 in January 2017.
A seasoned performer with a relatable, authentic message for all ages, Debbie has performed for audiences of as many as 15,000 and has been an internationally-featured artist on ReverbNation. Her entire album was featured on KRPR 89.9 FM, and she has received airplay on Scope Music, Women of Substance Radio and on Uganda’s only country station, 92.7 BOB FM. “Faithful” will also 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 Boys & Girls Club and the Ronald McDonald House.
Debbie is overjoyed to have her “encore career” in full swing and will soon bring her single “Lucky in Love” to U.S. radio with the support of renowned country label SSM Nashville Records. She will be giving a series of radio interviews across the country and performing in Nashville and around Rochester and the Twin Cities in the coming months. Debbie Anthony’s album All Over Again is available now.
