Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Most recent solo release, (that's Miss Passive-Aggressive to you) (2000)
Ani Difranco, Indigo Girls, Melissa Etheridge (she cites these herself and, by god, she's right)
Acoustic folk-rock with and angry edge and satisfying energy. (email@example.com)
Recommended first album:
(that's Miss Passive-Aggressive to you) is her sole solo release
Debra Guy—vocals, 12-string guitar
Debra Guy and Eddie Boyd
Wearing her influences all too boldly on her sleeve, Debra Guy obviously has big ambitions, but needs to tailor them to her resources. The songs here cry out for a bigger, more epic production á la Etheridge. lacking that, they tend—instrumentally, at least—to be rather samey, with familiar guitar strummings being repeated song after song. That said, she does play a mean twelve-string, riffing with real energy and clarity, and her strong voice and intelligent lyrics make her definitely one to watch once she adds a few more colours to her palette.
