Favorite Blue/DebO

Deb Ohlinger is a singer/songwriter from Covington, Ky.  After graduating with a BFA in 1986, she pursued a career in painting. Eventually, she gravitated towards music as her chosen medium, after she was casually  invited to "sit in" with musician friends. Instantly inspired, she was fronting her own bands within  a few years and performing on a regular basis. After some time,  she became intrigued with the songwriting process for its similar qualities to the visual arts. Utilizing the  same elements considered in painting, such as,  volume, line, contrast, form, weight and movement... among countless other terms...provided her with all the familiar tools for writing great tunes.

Favorite Blue is an eclectic collection of songs, produced by Rick Hayes of Hayes Productions, which has resulted in the founding of the band, Rattletrap by Ohlinger and Hayes. Pulling influences from various time periods and styles in American music. Truly Americana, it's a cross country trip in a time machine.  Enjoy the ride!

A  second CD by Rattletrap  is currently in production.
