Ask any musician how and where people are listening to their music or how their music is enhancing the lives of others. Many may likely have to think hard before finding an answer. Not so for new independent artist, debi glo, whose recently released CD Sol has been receiving many interesting and positive reviews.
Debi's nearly one hour of original piano compositions are melodic and relaxing. A massage therapist friend uses it in her office for a variety of massage and spa treatments, saying the music is perfect because it does not have frequently repeating phrasing which tends to keep the mind anticipating. Rather, the melodies weave and drift through streams of patterns, sometimes simple, sometimes intricate.
Many have reported playing the CD for dinner music as well as background music just about anytime. Because the music is soft and flowing, it does not compete with conversation or thought processes and is a terrific complement to a nice dinner with good friends and family members.
One couple reported that they were settling in for a listen but had to restart the CD...they needed to dim the lights. Within moments, they restarted it again after acquiring a glass of wine. They said they had enjoyed numerous attempts to listen to the CD in its entirety!
Another bought the CD for two sisters, each of whom enjoyed using the music while meditating.
A mother said her two young children would not go to sleep listening to any other music. If she tried to put something else on, they would say ..."No! I want debi glo!" The reason the mother liked playing the music at bedtime was that the tempo and volume were consistent throughout with no sudden changes that startled the children as did other pieces of music she previously purchased.
Another mother, who received the CD as a gift from her Aunt, said her first grade son had stayed home from school due to an illness. She was playing the CD while the boy rested on the sofa. He later told his mother that he did not know what that music was, but he thought it made him feel better!
Debi is a full-time elementary school teacher. She recently introduced her CD to other classroom teachers who played it for their students. Students listened to the music while studying, journaling, and as background music in their room. The teachers stated the music had a calming effect in the classroom and students seemed to be able to concentrate for longer periods of time. For all, it was a great teaching aid.
A writer said they played the music while writing as it enhanced their thought and creative process. Another found surfing the Internet with the music playing in the background kept them relaxed and more productive.
Debi has received e-mails saying her music has been used for yoga and Tai Chi classes. One even said they played it during an aerobic cool-down.
A Bed & Breakfast owner likes to play the CD as background music for their clients during meals and for creating a relaxing atmosphere at their establishment.
Another shares "I am a healer and practice mostly distant healing on an almost daily basis. I have used your record for meditation and used it for the first time to go along with my healing. The music matches the healing vibrations/waves that I send out and I feel that it enhances what I do."
"I am moved to write to you as I 'come out of' my healing mode which I seem to supplement more and more frequently with your music. My guidance indicates that it was channeled primarily as a healing tool. This means that who ever plays it, for whatever reason, will receive its inherent healing vibrations/waves. They do not have to know it or even want it, but they will be healed in some way. For those who give intent to send or receive healing, the music can be a powerful adjunct."
But perhaps the responses from those recovering or dealing with serious medical issues have brought Debi the most rewarding satisfaction. As one person stated: "I've played it frequently to 'calm the beast in me.'" Another individual who suffers from epileptic seizures uses it daily to keep anxiety levels in control. She was concerned about having to purchase a second debi glo CD for fear of wearing out the first. Instead, she wore out her CD player and had to replace it!

This music journey has been one of the most important happenings in my life. I hope you will, as I have done many times, just take some time out of your busy life and give yourself this gift (what I like to call a "life supplement). Sit back, relax, and play this CD softly, and let the music take you wherever it may in that moment ...
These original compositions were written with neither pen nor paper but rather came from my heart. Enjoy ...
