The task of Boston singer-songwriter Deb Pasternak is strongly influenced by Joni Mitchell and Rickie Lee Jones, folk-based yet with a solid jazz bent, in addition to touches of rock, pop, country and blues. Pasternak was created in Hartford, CT., and decided to be always a sea ecologist until she was stricken with a fairly severe episode of arthritis rheumatoid, which effectively finished her capability to spend extended periods of time on ships and even still left her temporarily struggling to walk. After recuperating, Pasternak threw herself into music, her various other major curiosity, and honed her guitar-playing and songwriting chops. In 1992, Pasternak transferred to Boston, where she set up herself in the city’s fertile singer-songwriter picture and eventually found a Boston Music Award for Excellent New Modern Folk Action in 1996. Her separately issued album Even more was found for national discharge in 1997 after among its music was featured in the THAT IS Boston, Not really Austin compilation.
