NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Top40 Charts/ Visionmoore Music
Group) - Singer, songwriter, keyboardist and recording artist Deborah Kay has received two nominations for The Independent Singer-Songwriters Association's (ISSA) "2009 Christian Contemporary Singer-Songwriter of the Year" contest and award. Kay's two nominated songs, "So Alive
" and "Love Everlasting" are from her debut CD, "Love Stories," which was nationally released in late 2008 on Visionmoore Music
Group Records. Kay, who wrote both songs, is the only artist to receive two nominations in the 2009 Christian Contemporary category. Other contest and award categories are in Gospel, Pop, Country, Rock and Hip-Hop.
ISSA is an international music organization that supports the disciplines of singing, songwriting, musicianship and performance in independent music communities around the world. The winners in each category will be announced in November 2009 and will be awarded a cash prize, as well as receive huge international exposure.
Although "Love Stories" is Kay's first solo CD, she is no stranger to the music scene. Over the last 15 years, she has performed or recorded with such national artists as Ronnie Laws, Carl Carlton, Kim Waters, Earl Klugh, Run DMC, Billy Preston, Gene Dunlap and Lin Rountree. With the sweet, soprano voice of an angel, Kay is considered one of Detroit's best female singers, songwriters and keyboardists to hit the national music scene in more than 30 years.
While somewhat influenced by other female singers who play piano, such as Alicia Keys, Roberta Flack and Carol King, Kay's musical and vocal style is a refreshing blend of R&B, jazz, pop, gospel, and even classical influences, all indicative of her life experiences.
Kay is extremely excited that music from her debut CD has been played by numerous radio and Internet outlets throughout the United States, and has received airplay as far away as the United Kingdom and Australia.
