"Michael Clem, Eddie from Ohio"

“Debra Guy sings with the rasp of Amy Ray (Indigo Girls) and the sincerity of Brandi Carlile. The raw acoustic energy of her songs wax nostalgic for that great female singer-songwriter surge of the late 80s, but still sit comfortably in the pocket of today's sounds.” ~Michael Clem, Eddie from Ohio - Michael Clem, Eddie from Ohio

Feeling a bit camera shy


“If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” – Rudyard Kipling

Debra Guy is a singer, songwriter, and storyteller.

“I’m an over-sharer by nature,” says Guy.  “Our stories are our legacy.  I lost my father when I was eleven and my mother just a few years ago.  I’m telling my stories, but I’m also telling theirs.”  Guy’s solo acoustic record “Lucky Numbers” is just that – a collection of true stories put into lyrics, melodies, and expressed through her deft hands and captivating voice.  Her live performances trigger audiences to put down their drinks, step closer, and listen.

Guy also fronts the pop folk quartet, Help Me Helen.  “I took a break from songwriting for a few years after my daughter was born.  But I love music and people, so it wasn’t surprising that once I started making music again, I found myself fostering new collaborative relationships with folks adding their talent to the mix.”  By folks, she means multi-instrumentalist and “lead bass guitar” player Drew Pompano, history teacher and drummer Zachary Bullock, and librarian-by-day, vocalist-by-night, Kelly Kroese.  “Help Me Helen is a lot of fun,” says Guy, “despite the lyrical intensity of some of the songs, we don’t take ourselves too seriously and our main goal in playing together is to make good music and have a great time.”
