Debs McCoy

What people say about Debs music:

'Quiver lipped acoustic folk from Newcastle'
Time Out, London

'....actually very beautiful, haunting and other worldly....I am a fan of what she is doing'
Simon Raymonde, Bella Union Records

'Warm and engaging music from an exceptional musician and visual artist....the result is both fascinating and painfully honest'
Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music

'Dark, cinematic, and imbued with a miasma of mysterious melancholy, it conjures up moonlight walks and more than a hint of Edgar Allen Poe'
Andy Von Pip, Von Pip Musical Express

' realise how this music has elevated your sympathy, for in the silence that follows, you feel that the sound is still there, like a phantom limb.'
Tom Hollingworth, NARC Magazine

'...It’s the sort of stuff where you'd just want to put on a 
whole album and let yourself be part of that space'
Kathryn Tickell, Musician/Amazing Radio

‘…there’s a whole album of very lovely songs to hear on…track her down, do go see her play live if you can.’
Ruth Barnes, The Other Woman, Amazing Radio

'Her music, her musicianship, her voice and her songs are beguiling, beautiful and bewitching'
Johnno Casson, Musician & Music Writer for Fresh On The Net

'...highly talented and extremely prolific......her story is a real eye opener and she has to be commended on her resilience in producing such beautiful music in what has been very trying times.'
Mike Lindley, Fruitbatwalton Blog
