Greetings! I’ve seen some of you, out and about in the neighborhood this week. That’s cool! You popped up at the Adele Grage Cultural Center for Songwriters Night. Now, Debi Jean has left the building in Episode 137 of Debi Jean On Air. Still within the walls of The Castle, close to the sea, under the enchanted forest, I’m perched among the foliage of Paradise to tell you some stories in songs. Sit a spell. We brake for live music. Busking on line. Yup! See ya around!
This week’s Set List:
01:31 Devil’s Bargain—Debi Jean
A fantasy set on the Great Lakes of Michigan, some bad juju went down there but this song is entirely made up—wishful thinking. “Me, I got my glittery soul, to hold me in until I’m ready to let go…….”
08:28 Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald—Gordon Lightfoot
This is a true story, set on Lake Superior. Also a Michigan song—the Great Lakes are considered inland seas, and in November, they get dangerous. Fresh water doesn’t roll like salt water in the best of weather.
16:30 Float My Boat—Debi Jean
More fantasy, which seems to be my thing. When you write songs, you learn things about yourself that you might not have known before. I wrote this in 2018 when I began to write songs. The songs just came sailing by, asking me to pick them. So, who wouldn’t? In the end, you gotta float your own boat. “ The sunset will be here soon enough.”
Later my Lovelies. I appreciate you tuning in for PEACE, LOVE, and LIVE MUSIC on FirstCoast.Life –always spreading good news and beautiful photos and people and places and pretty things.

I’m a late-blooming guitar-wielding singer-songwriter who recently came down from the mountains to retire at the beach. I didn’t know I wanted to be a rock star until I was 63. At the time I was sundowning my CPA practice that I started in 1983. You do the math. Anyway, I got so hooked on music that it changed my life.
I’ve learned that I operate on both sides of my brain, both analytically & creatively and that’s pretty handy. It’s such a rush to write a song, such a cool way to express one’s self. My muse is a friendly butterfly that flits by from time to time with a song story. Gotta dig that! So I’m busting at the seams to share my JOY of music with others.
That’s why I created The Debi Jean Show. I get to have fun doing covers and originals and I chit chat a little. I have other local musicians as guests which helps plug into the amazing music scene here in Atlantic Beach. I have found a new purpose in life and it suits me to a tee. I live in a beautiful place, I get to play music—life is good.
