Artist, educator, singer-songwriter and a fascinating folk artist, Deb Cavanaugh makes music a part of everything she does. She performs her own music, as well as a full range of other material, playing a variety of instruments, including mandolin, mountain dulcimer and guitar. Her music and memoirs encompass her extensive travel through the US, as well as her vast experience living on the road, hitchhiking and raising a family in a VW bus.
True to her eclectic style, she is currently doing a string of shows with various other artists, creating unique shows with different songs and styles depending on who she is playing with at the time. Before that, she performed as one half of Cavanaugh & Kavanaugh. This duo performed original and traditional folk and Americana. They have one CD entitled "Returning" which can be found on CD Baby.
In the 1980s and 90s, she was a founding member of General Eclectic, a psychedelic folk/rock band in Albany, NY. She has recently released a compilation CD of some of their greatest hits.
In 2014, Deb released her first solo CD, "Highway in Your Eyes (musical memoirs)". This unique project, a double CD set with music on one CD and spoken word memoirs on the other, allows listeners a peek inside of the artist's heart and mind. They get to share the experiences spurring the creative process and learn about the inspirations for these songs. Since then she has written enough songs for another CD with plans to start recording a children's CD soon.
They say that variety is the spice of life, and Deb sets out to prove this in her many endeavors.
