Sweet Soul

Categories : , ,

Release Date: September 1, 2015


Philadelphia’s blues-soul singer/songwriter Deb Callahan releases her
5th CD “Sweet Soul” on Blue Pearl Records. The CD, produced by
renowned producer and drummer Tony Braunagel, was recorded at
Ultratone Studios in Los Angeles, CA. Deb and guitar player Allen James
travelled to Los Angeles in February 2015 to record the tracks with an all star
studio line-up including Johnny Lee Schell, engineering and slide guitar, Mike
Finnigan on keyboards, Reggie McBride on bass, Braunagel on drums and
James on guitar. This group of LA musicians have recorded and toured with
performers such as Etta James, Bonnie Raitt and Taj Mahal so it was a truly
wonderful experience to play with and learn from each one.

It’s been almost 5 years since Deb’s last CD, “Tell It Like It Is” was released.
Shortly after this release, Deb became a mom to her now 4 year old son
Elijah. The experience of being a new mom has had a direct impact on her
writing and focus in her life. The songs from “Sweet Soul” were written
during an overall sweet and rich phase of life. Deb worked with James and
Chris Arms (who produced Deb’s last 3 CD’s) to write the original material
and with producer Braunagel to find some gems written by others that fit
the vibe as well. The mood of this blues, soul, roots CD is upbeat, rockin,
funky and fun and explores the theme of love and family with an honest and
at times humorous view into both its joys and challenges. This includes the
experience of loving a child or partner, the connection and sweetness you
feel when you slow down and just be present with ones you love, the pain
and difficulty of letting go of a family member, the ups and downs of living
with someone, the inner tension about balancing family and career, the
energy it takes to keep things running to do a lot of different things in life.
