What started out as one
family’s struggle has
become a source of support...

Wow! What an exciting update we have for you this month!  Many artists have been introduced to us through family and friends, and we’re grateful to Lee Hyland for bringing his friend, Debby Clinkenbeard, into the Giving Songs world!  Debby is a touring artist based out of California who has years of experience and multiple albums under her belt.  You can find more information about Debby and her music at her website here.

Debby showcases her exceptional songwriting ability with her contribution of This Season.   In her own words:

A few years ago I was challenged to write a Christmas song to perform at a holiday festival. Right away I wanted it to be a departure from tradition and lean toward something more organic. I wanted to write a piece that was lasting, something that inspired thought, and something that enveloped the heart of what we should all remember every day. I also wanted it to be a bit personal and have a little decoration as a nod to the season. More than anything, I wanted it to be something that would impart perspective and hope to this time of year whether or not the listener has all http://viagraforhealthyman.com/ of the traditional celebratory surroundings. For me, the winter season has a distinct rhythm that inspires reflection as nature seems to retreat in preparation for rebirth. I started thinking about this season beyond the man-made measure of time and cultural affectations. Every avenue I went down led to the same theme. No matter your faith or traditions, this time of celebration should be a nod to one thing: we’re still here. If we’re still here that means we can reflect, grow, affect, inspire, strengthen, build, and give. That, my friends, is a very powerful thing.

For some reason I never did much with this song. It’s beautiful and I am proud to be a catalyst for the message, but it always felt like it needed to wait for something bigger. When I had the opportunity to contribute to Giving Songs the light finally came on. This song was perfect for what these amazing people are doing. They embody the message I tried to convey and I couldn’t be happier to have found this home for a song that means so much to me. I’m humbled and thankful to be the December 2015 Artist of the Month and to contribute to their body of work. I hope you find Giving Songs and this track inspiring enough to make a purchase in support of such a great cause.

Have a wonderful holiday season,
