The band also rehearsed at Clubfoot (along w/the OFFS, chris isaack & many others). With the demise of the band, Debora began teaching art @ The American Indian Charter School emphasizing poetry. She relocated to the desert: 29 Palms (Joshua Tree) as an extreme residency specialist throughout the area. She attended Lewis & Clark College subsequently teaching at The Navajo Nation in Arizona & as a teacher she gave the gift that keeps on giving. In 2010 Debora began performing again & formed Dottie Records, had a successful Kickstarter Campaign & released 2 solo efforts: Stay Strong & Singing Til Sunrise. She's been busy doing art shows, spoken word, acoustic & has a new band that has played LA, SF, SAC & most recently Nevada City. She finds writing is of interest massaging the words & bringing colors & emotions to her pieces, Debora wears many artistic hats & carries herself with grace, dignity, humility & a healthy dose of humor as well as one of the hardest working women in the business (even taking questions from Tyler Cook & Monte Cazazza in studio A). In this hour she shares tidbits from her illustrious past & dreams for the future: she is on the edge as she wants to be, but in her heart wants to INSPIRE! So Git Yer Medicine Woman Wheel ON! and NEVER SAY NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
