Listen to Debra’s debut CD, Cat Walk Boogie & Blues! A diverse collection of boogie and blues, the CD features her original composition "Cat Walk Boogie" with accompaniment by Jim Murray, drums and Jay Olaszek, bass.
Debra Hope Miller, a.k.a. Little Debra, became interested in the blues just four years ago. She has been influenced by many great blues pianists including Ray Charles, Otis Spann, Erroll Garner and Erwin Helfer. Her musical education began with formal training in classical piano and music theory in college. She then took many years off from playing the piano in order to build a business. She loves many styles of music, and has written music in other genres too, including classical.
Debra plays a lot by ear and with her soul. She is an arranger, pianist, author, composer and singer-songwriter. The title of this debut CD comes from Debra's composition, "Cat Walk Boogie", which is a nod to the playful and inquisitive attitude that our feline friends bring to everyday life - the same kind of attitude Debra brings to the piano.
On Cat Walk Boogie, Debra brings her musical styling to a world that's still in love with the greats. On behalf of Debra, she hopes you enjoy this tribute to piano blues and boogie-woogie...and invite you to feel the music in your heart.
