At Café Libri this month is duo Deb Yager and Bo Reynolds. “You can call us singer/songwriters with an Austin twist,” says Yager. A former ad executive who’d lived the good life from NYC to Key West, New Orleans & Hawaii, Yager traded in the champagne & caviar for something more substantial; the call of her heart. She sold all her material possessions and moved to Austin, Texas to follow her dream of becoming a musician. When she got to Austin she sold her Mercedes Benz. Then she bought a blue Gibson Gospel guitar she nicknamed Baby Blue. She figures it was a fair trade.
The first few months in Austin were not easy for Yager. Open mic attempts were followed by her first “big gig” playing at a local grocery store recalls Yager. With the hundred bucks she made from her that first show, she put a down payment on a PA, and hasn’t looked back since. Yager’s music combines heartfelt, down to earth lyrics with a “voice from heaven,” says David Gold, of Texas Music magazine. She is equally capable of silencing a crowd with the vulnerable “My Secret” as she is with starting a groove with the powerful “Lonely & Blue.”
