“Winnipeg's Reigning Queen of the Blues” - Rob Williams
— Winnipeg Free Press
Debra Lyn creates a mood full of energy. Rich vocal tone that sounds like smooth leather worn with time and a range to hard driven blues that scuff a dance floor. Before moving to Winnipeg, Debra Lyn grew up near the rolling hills of Southern Manitoba. "I heard Koko Taylor sing Voodoo Woman. It changed things for me. It was like waking up with blues, good and bad."
Debra Lyn taught herself to play guitar at 30. Writing songs came naturally soon after. Songs written from her soul, strong and true lyrics, in the surreal language of the blues. You'll hear that "wild horses growl, thunder threatens the skies and ragdolls dance." She treasures a lifetime of honor playing with musicians like Big Dave MacLean (Order of Canada Award) Ken "Spider" Sinnaeve, Joanna Miller (Leaf Rapids),Emily Burgess (Weber Brothers) Chris Carmicheal, and Jason Nowicki (Perpetrators)
"And now for a women's perspective on the Blues, Mr. Debra Lyn Neufeld" ~ Big Dave MacLean
"I drove truck for years, I heard the Blues. I don't drive truck anymore, I play the Blues." ~ Debra Lyn Neufeld.
