In 2011, her first music video "Pocket of Heaven" aired on "The AOF Channel" Series shown on various NBC affiliates in the US. "Pocket of Heaven" is from the album "Little Stories" and is the follow-up album to “IN”, also released in March 2011.
“IN” is a cornucopia of feel good, infectious songs, sprinkled with quiet moments of introspection and emotional revelations. It is personal, eclectic and downright fun.
The last two years have brought with them numerous successes that are reflected in the song choices on “IN”. Found on the CD is the catchy homage to seventies pop music, “I Don’t Mind”, the theme song of the short film, Potluck. “I Don’t Mind” was named Best Composition at the 2009 Action On Film International Film Festival, as well as received a nomination at the 2009 Feel Good Film Festival for Best Original Song.
Last year she was again nominated for Best Composition at the Action On Film International Film Festival, taking home the second place award for her song "Taken", the theme song for the short film, A Rendezvous.
“IN” follows The Land of Deborah’s previous EP release, “You Are Here”, which received the following review by R.C. Joseph of 24 Hours:
"One need listen no further than The Land of Deborah’s latest release, You are Here, to witness one of the smoothest voices in the city. Coupled with distinct yet subtle instrumentation, The Land of Deborah’s sound grows to resemble that which may have occurred if M.I.A. set out to make a Carly Simon record.”
“IN” will be followed by the album, “Little Stories”. The pre-release of “Pocket of Heaven” provides a tasty sampling of what you can expect from The Land of Deborah.
The Land of Deborah is an independent artist with a unique take on life, love and the pursuit of fair trade chocolate.
Born and raised in England, Deborah is a world traveler who now calls Vancouver home. Her influences range from Simon & Garfunkel to ABBA to Joan Baez. Her musical style is in the vein of Sara Bareilles, and Ingrid Michaelson.
