My Town My Music’s Local Artist Spotlight
We are thrilled to dip our toes into the country music side by getting to know Local Artist Debbie Anthony. A self-described soulful country artist, she recently released her newest single, “Lucky in Love” in the U.S. You can listen below!
Anthony grew up in Rochester and graduated from Mayo High School. She went on to earn her music degree and was then accepted into a psychology masters program. However, her life/career path was forever altered when she met Mitch, the man who would become her husband. They went on a blind date, hit it off, and wed in just thirteen days. They’ve been married for 28 years and have worked together since the beginning. He is her biggest fan and cheerleader, and it is this tight-knit, supportive relationship that has driven her musical journey.
Though their kids were always top priority, performing at church, karaoke, and music contests kept Anthony’s foot in the door. Realizing that original music was the key to getting noticed, her husband took a chance. A milestone wedding anniversary was upcoming, and he gave her the gift of music in the form of “Faithful”, a song that he’d written himself. She performed it at their anniversary party, and that was song that started it all.
