Debbie Lynn Bryson, a native of Darke County has been singing since the age of two and writing songs since she was 15. She has been traveling and singing Gospel music in a five state area for the last five years. Her latest trip was to northeastern Ohio where she was blessed to share the stage with Lorne Matthew, whom for many years played piano for the internationally famous Gospel Quartet THE CATHEDRALS. She is currently in correspondence with Ann Downing who has appeared on the Gaither vocal Gospel programs. Debbie’s music can be heard on WTGR and WFCJ in Ohio and also on K-ROCK Luddington, Michigan radio stations. With five CD’s released, her latest gospel CD entitled “PURE INSPIRATIONS”, has sold out many times.

Her heartwarming yet very powerful voice will leave you wanting more. Debbie loves the Lord, and continues to share the word of God through her music ministry. Debbie truly hopes that her audiences are moved by the Holy Spirit.
