The latest Debbie and Friends creation is a new story song based on the classic tale of “Snow White.” This new production has it all from Classic Disco to New Orleans-style music. It also has two very special guests vocalists: Grammy-winning kids/family artist, Bill Harley and Berklee College of Music’s Associate Professor of Voice, Kudisan Kai.
A cartoon music video for this song is currently in production and will be released on our YouTube channel soon. For now, enjoy the sneak preview:
A great big thank you to all of the families who came out to support our SOLD OUT benefit concert for the Sandy Hook School Fund. The Coolidge Corner Theatre holds 440 seats and they were filled with kids and families all there to make music with Debbie and Friends, Bill Harley, and Vanessa Trien. 100% of the $3280 ticket sales and $200 merchandise sales will be donated to the United Way’s Sandy Hook School Fund.

I’m happy to share a behind-the-scenes look at our production rough of “Pinocchio” by Debbie and Friends. The audio is a rough demo and the visual is a storyboard.
The final version will be a late summer release. We’ll keep you posted along the way!

All of us at Debbie and Friends are so proud of the Wolf and other kindie artist’s puppets who contributed their time and talents to a very special cause. See “Felt Around the World” and download the song to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Enjoy!Debbie and Friends, Music, News | Comment (0)

Thank you to Steve Pullara and all of the producers of this CD for including Debbie and Friends in this compilation!
