Debbie Neigher Embraces Vulnerability on ‘I Am Ready’


There’s no shortage of artists with compelling backstories and interesting songs — artists like Debbie Neigher. The San Francisco singer and songwriter (and one time study-abroad student in Ghana) released her second album, “Unravel,” last fall, after giving up her job working with at-risk teens to focus full-time on music.

Like her self-titled first album, Neigher recorded “Unravel” with John Vanderslice producing at his Tiny Telephone Studio, and tapped Magik*Magik Orchestra to arrange the songs. The result is a collection of lush pop-friendly soundscapes surrounding Neigher’s vibrant, crystalline voice on songs that she says are about vulnerability in its various guises.

Neigher currently has just one show on the calendar, June 29 at Brick & Mortar Music Hall in San Francisco, but we can hold out hope for a more extensive tour. In the meantime, listen to her song “I Am Ready.”
