After several Years of touring in rock bands, Debra took a break from the music industry and eventually, re-emerged as a solo Artist around the year 2000. She played many open mics and went on to perform many local shows, fundraiser's and performs live on a few local radio shows along with other recording artists and as a Featured Guest Artist.
Debra recorded her 1st solo EP in 2007 called Debra Whyte "Exposed". This Live one take studio recording managed to do very well on thebeat.fm in California. All 4 songs stayed on top of thebeat.fm acoustic charts for several months in 2007. 2 songs from that EP appear on 2 separate CD compilations called "Tea South Vol 12 and "Acoustica Volume 9" which continue to receive airplay in Canada and the US. Her song "You Can Cope" won an "Effigy Award" and the reviewers on Fame Games radio also noted what a beautiful voice she has. Her fan base is continually growing throughout Canada and The US. Although she is often vocally compared to Eva Cassidy,Debra definitely has a style that is all her own. Dr. Dean Brown was once quoted as saying "Debra with a Voice Like yours you have an obligation to sing" ...."A voice like an Angel".
In April 2008-2010 Debra Created "The Wired Bean Songwriters Showcase and Concert Series" Events which she performed at once a month, hosted and promoted. This Event provided a wonderful opportunity for seasoned artists to showcase their music in the only listening venue in town. In just 10 months time, this venue made the Top 50 Best Live Music Clubs in Canada Voted by CBC Radio 3 all due to Debra's hard work and dedication to her fellow artists and local music community.
