Winner of Vocal Group of the Year, 2014 (The Grievous Angels), Texas Music Awards

Winner of Americana Artist of the Year, 2013 (The Grievous Angels), Houston Press Awards

“Train Song stands tall on soulful stories, powerful vocals and a personal feel that mirrors Ashley Cleveland more than any Sunday morning fare.”

Matt Conner, CCM (Apr 01, 2011)

“By sheer luck, this town got wind of this talented performer and now we’re trying to hold her… exhibited a voice that is lonesome and honest like a train…offers a certain yearning for a place to belong, a home””

“It’s a burning ring of fire [wink] of thick, campy storylines, sultry vocals and (mostly) adult lyrics. Needless to say, we’re fans. And in a city that’s seen its share of successful Americana acts, yet another is making her mark: Debbie Forrest.”

“So, catch her now while you can, and don’t be surprised if Debbie is keeping a close eye on you while she performs. Debbie does some of her songwriting while on stage. ”

“Forrest, as of this writing is overdue for a follow-up album, but when it arrives it will be spectacular if the debut offering is any indication.”
