Deborah Martin Performs:
Watercolours, Tracks In Time, and Forgot In Stone
Deborah’s first three original compositions for the Spotted Peccary Music label were the cornerstone of a special compilation project released in 1994 titled “Tracks In Time”, and were available only on that release. Contributing the title track and two additional themed compositions, the out of print CD captured the essence of the New American Southwest sound at the time.
Now reintroduced for the first time in over 20 years, Deborah’s timeless musical visions spring forth once again to conjure up the whisper of ancient times and memories of long ago civilizations. The tracks are comprised of ambient electro-acoustic melodies with symphonic overtones and rhythms providing impressionistic and dramatic nuances with earthy provocative and folksy dreamlike soundscapes.
A definite precursor to Deborah’s future releases throughout her years on the Spotted Peccary Music label, both old and new fans of her music will most certainly want to add this EP to their collection.

Deborah Martin (#6 eps / singles: Etched Into Memory, Spotted Peccary Music)
I welcome this time of year and am thankful for many blessings—friendships old and new, simple pleasures of home and family, and anticipation of what the New Year may bring. With all the changes occurring in the world, it’s sometimes challenging to keep focus on what the real values in life are. For me value is the opportunity to be of service to others. I wish for everyone the beauty and tranquility of the season and may each of you find the joy and peace in your value.
