The Full Story
In her 20s, Deb Manso began honing her craft as a songwriter and recording her own songs. She emerged onto the vibrant NYC music scene, captivating audiences with her performances at open mic nights in intimate venues throughout the city. During this time, she found a supportive music mentor who encouraged her to write songs for TV pilots, expanding her creative horizons.
However, it wasn't until her 40s, after the profound loss of her mother, that Deb Manso discovered her true calling as an artist. Battling depression and anxiety, she found solace and therapy in expressing her personal experiences through songwriting. Inspired by a diverse range of female singer/songwriters such as Lana Del Ray, Phoebe Bridgers, and FKA Twigs, Deb Manso aimed to create music that resonated with others, particularly women over 40 who are navigating their own paths of self-discovery.
Reflecting on her artistic journey, Deb Manso shared, "It wasn't until now, in this moment of my life, that I truly realized my purpose. I am here to challenge the stigma of aging and bring value to the richness of experience through sharing stories of personal growth and life's seasons. This is my time!"
