“Celt eclectic” songwriter Deborah Gabinet was inspired by her ‘muse’ the Atlantic Ocean to live and compose music on the east coast of Canada. Her newly released ‘sea-D’ Real and Alive-O! features Deborah’s diverse musical abilities on vocals, piano and piano accordion through the colorful threads of a style she calls “Celt eclectic”- a fusion of classical, celtic and contemporary genres.

The album was recorded at Studio FMP with producer/engineer Scott Ferguson and features guitarist Bruce Timmins, bassist John Chiasson, and percussionist/drummer Scott Ferguson. Deborah’s rich mezzo voice, her beautiful lyrics and celtic arrangements create sensitive ‘ocean-inspired’ musical paintings of the fishermen, boats, blizzards and beaches of the east coast.
