Now, her 2012 new album “Heartbeat”, recorded in Nashville, TN, showcases Arlyn’s newly found musical depth and earned motherly wisdom. "Heartbeat" tells the story of Arlyn's heart awakening, which she often calls 'experiencing Amazing Grace'. This natural progression in her songwriting from young love and teenage angst, to mature love and inspirational messages, is resonating deeply with listeners and industry folk. The opening cut “Hush’ holds the title of “Song of the Year” in the international song contest of the same name. And the closing song "Still Be Thankful" is making waves in the Nashville CCM community. Add those to Arlyn’s 11 previous international song contest wins, and there is no denying Arlyn’s songwriting stands out.
But, Debra has also been famously hailed as ‘the girl with the incredible voice” . Colleges, festivals, music venues and churches have been captivated by her outstanding, soaring live vocals. Her music has been featured in TV shows, movies and received rave reviews from magazines, newspapers, social media sites, and industry personnel. There is no doubt that "Heartbeat" will push Arlyn's career to the next level, as one can’t help but be moved by the tender surprises in Debra’s story. To listen top to bottom to the record “Heartbeat” is to experience Arlyn’s personal and Spiritual growth, profound talent, and return to the music scene with a fresh purpose. Debra Arlyn’s voice, words, melodies and music, deserve to be heard.
