A few weeks ago I reviewed some low-cost speakers courtesy of Debt Free Direct and Asda, and I’ve had a few people comment on one of the songs I played during my testing of them, so I thought I’d do a little intro to the singer for you.
This is the beautiful Deborah Tyfield. Isn’t she gorgeous? It’ll pain all you ladies out there to know that she’s also really talented, and a lovely person. She’s the girl that’s got it all!
I arranged a little Skype date with her so I could ask her some questions and we ended up chatting for over an hour and a half (!!) talking about everything from her music, to friendship, whether we believe in ghosts and her travel plans. It was such a laid back, chatty call and she is honestly one of the loveliest people I think I’ve ever had the pleasure of getting to know.
Although a trained opera singer, Deborah’s style changed direction after she spent some time living in San Francisco, developing a sound which she feels is much more suited to her as a person and her personality.
Her current single ‘Get Up And Dance’ is ridiculously catchy and even now as I’m typing this it’s whizzing round and round inside my head. Her voice is incredible and you can tell she has an operatic background, but this track is very ‘pop’ and ‘dance’ too – definitely something I can imagine playing on the radio!
Don’t be fooled though, she’s more than a ‘one trick pony’ and her talents extend further than her impressive vocals; she’s also a song-writer! I’ve always been intrigued to know how songs come about – is it the words first or the melody – but Deborah tells me it could be either. She’ll be going about her day, minding her own business and suddenly the perfect line, or a short burst of sound will strike her and she has to write it down or record it while she thinks of it, before it’s lost forever.
Whilst, obviously a musical talent is something to be valued, the truly impressive thing about Deborah is her. She has a warm and open manner you can’t help but be drawn to and she is incredibly likable. She’s also very driven and, when we spoke, hadn’t taken a day off since July. I don’t think I, or many other people for that matter, could cope with 6 months without a day off! Incredible lady.
Deborah has her own channel on YouTube, plus a Twitter page and website,and you can download ‘Get Up And Dance’ on iTunes now. Definitely make sure you go and check her out, she’s so much fun, really lovely and, with a voice like hers, sure to have great things ahead of her!
Go and take a listen and let me know what you think!
