About Deb Seymour
Seattle singer-songwriter Deb Seymour performs "demented wit, haunting blues and moving ballads".
Charming her audience with her quirky outlook on life, her songs take you on a wild ride with hitch-hiking chickens, tango-dancing Martians, stopping to re-fuel with jazz-infused torch songs, then zooming along to laugh at the absurdities of the challenges we all face as human beings.
Seymour's influences include Christine Lavin, Patty Larkin, Weird Al Yankovic, and every Broadway show ever written. Also a nimble-fingered guitarist, Deb's song styles move deftly between country, jazz, pop, Latin, blues and Celtic.
In September of 2018, her comedy song "Colonoscopy" placed as Finalist in the Great American Song Contest (Special Music Category), and as semi-finalist in both the 2018 Song of the Year (Singer-songwriter category) & the 2018 International Songwriting Contest (Novelty Category). Her jazz-infused torch ballad "Dinner For One" also made Runner-Up in the 2018 Song of the Year Contest.
She is also a three-time Tumbleweed Songwriting Finalist ("Mama Wears A Hard Hat", "Martian Tango Love Song", and "Girders of Steel") and a winner of the Top Five in the 2011 Great American Song Contest (Country Category) for "Mama Wears A Hard Hat".
Off-stage, Seymour is an avid electric car owner/driver, a passionate gardener and dabbles in complex cake-decorating art, often with hilarious results.
