Listen to The Truehearts
"The Truehearts' rich harmony blend and honest song-craft evokes the heart and soul of another Nashville duo, Wild Ponies. Purgatory Emporium is filled with people who are finding trouble and strife while imagining a finer place. "The story's never right or never wrong, it's just who sings the song," Debra and Steve sing at album's end. These stories found the right singers."
(Grammy nominated Singer-Songwriter, Music Journalist, Author)
“The music feels good, with guitars that jangle and shimmer, vocals and harmonies that recall Emmylou, Kelly Willis and Tom Petty, Steve Earle and even The Whites, The Jayhawks and Mary Chapin Carpenter, with an occasional sidelong glance at The Beatles”
(Singer-Songwriter, East Nashvillian Magazine)
"I've known Steve McWilliams for more years than I care to count. His music has always led from the heart, full of melody and an open spirit. With Debra, he has found a perfect partner, in voice and song and music. The Truehearts make you think and make you happy. What more could you ask for?"
(Red Beet Records, Last Train Home, Eric Brace & Peter Cooper)
"Songwriting smarts and skin-tight harmony tackle the human condition with sobriety and candor"
(WSM, 650 AM Nashville)
"The Truehearts have once again provided a great Americana soundtrack on their latest release Purgatory Emporium. Their lyrics, melodies and harmonies on songs like The Mountain, Roll of the Dice and Photographs showcase that this Nashville duo understand personalities, relationships and life experience like no one else."
