Debbie Goodman

 

With a head full of songs and ready to tell about them, Debbie Goodman packed up a U-Haul and headed to Los Angeles with her guitar and her percussionist. She left behind a budding country career in Nashville to pursue pop and rock in more progressive California.

The song Beautiful Girl can be heard streaming in some major grocery stores across the US. Pop star Grace Potter sings her song "Stars". Debbie's rock and country crossover tunes and that undeniable twang in her voice reveals an Oklahoma City upbringing with a nice mix of Tennessee. Other influences include Led Zepplin, who she loves covering with a live band, and she looks up to country star Miranda Lambert for her rebellious feistiness.

From East Coast to West Coast and right in the middle, Debbie Goodman has touched the nation with songs that come straight from her own real life.
