2000 - 2004


Soulgrass was a progressive bluegrass band from Southcentral Kentucky. The original band featured Debbie Heavers (aka Debra Lyn) on lead vocals and bass guitar; David Foster - acoustic guitar and vocals; Curtis Burch (New Grass Revival) - dobro; Joel Whittinghill - Mandolin & Fiddle and Joe Larson - banjo. Additional members that performed with Soulgrass include Mike Schroeder - mandolin and Billy Ray Lathum (formerly of the Kentucky Colonels & the Dillards) - banjo.

Soulgrass released their self-title CD in 2002. Two singles, including an original written by Debra, were released in the U.S. on the "Prime Cuts of Bluegrass" compilation CD. Nearly 400 stations reported airplay for these singles. The Soulgrass version of "Love Please Come Home" was also added to the playlist for cable television's "Music Choice." Soulgrass performed at numerous venues throughout the southeastern U.S. such as Nashville, Tennessee's famous Station Inn. Debbie and Soulgrass were also featured performers on many live radio and television programs in Kentucky, Indiana, North Carolina and Tennessee.

In 2004, Debra moved to California and pursued her own solo career as an artist and songwriter. She has released 2 CDs: "I Can't Remember To Forget You" in 2009 and her most recent release is "A Cold Wind Blows" - an Americana/Roots based CD on Palette Records. Both CDs were produced by Jeff Silverman for Palette Music Studio Productions (MSP).
