SN9|Ep476 - Debbie Wileman - Singer -Judy Garland 100 Year Birthday Tribute Album "I'm Still Here"
The Jeremiah Show
My Very Special Guest Today is Debbie Wileman - Her debut Album is "I'm Still Here" featuring many of Judy’s classics as well as other contemporary hits that she believes Judy would be singing today. The album was orchestrated, conducted and produced by Steve Orich, orchestrator of the Grammy Award Winning album, Jersey Boys.This is a story for all of you artists out there who have a dream, but are overwhelmed by the seemingly massive obstacles to overcome to reach those dreamsDebbie Wileman rose to fame during the pandemic when all the creatives - got creative! Debbie used her instrument (her voice) as an outlet and created ‘a song a day’ which simply were videos of her dressed in character and singing. The videos were posted on her personal Facebook page and were only intended to uplift and inspire her friends in the height of the pandemic (at the time it was 300 some odd friends) Now she nearing max capacity on a personal page! Anywho, back then, she pledged to post 'a song a day' - That went on for 100 consecutive days. Among these videos were her spot on Judy Garland impersonations (in addition to Dusty Springfield, Patsy Cline, Liza Minnelli, Shirley Bassey, Adele, Lady Gaga and many other luminaries). Her song a day videos went viral and garnered over 1 million hits in no time. The videos also caught the attention of Steve Orich, the Grammy Award winning orchestrator (Jersey Boys) and manager / promoter/ producer, Scott Stander. The two of them have produced Debbie’s debut album, "I’m Still Here”, a Judy Garland celebratory album featuring her songs and songs that they felt Judy would sing today. Debbie recorded “Over the Rainbow' in the very same room at MGM Studios that Garland recorded in 84 years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cR03zR5IUykThe album released on June 10th, what would have been Garland’s 100th Birthday. She also embarked on a 5 city US tour including stops in Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, New York City (Carnegie Hall!), Provincetown, MA and ending in LA. She always sang but never pursued a career as she put her family first. Now that a Grammy Award winning orchestrator and manager went knocking on her door, she has an album and just finished a US tour. Talk about the power of social media! She is thrilled to be taking this leap of faith. Debbie Wileman is a 38 year-old suburban mum living in North Essex, England with her husband and four-year old daughter. She has also become a social media singing sensation during the global pandemic, capturing world-wide attention as a Judy Garland phenomenon. Debbie new album, I'm Still Here, conducted and produced by Grammy Award Winner Steve Orich, and Executive Produced by Scott Stander, debuted on June 10, 2022, on Judy’s 100th Birthday.Debbie on Social:Facebook: facebook.com/debbie.saloman Instagram: @debwileman/The new album has reached #2 on easy listening chart!“I had the pleasure of listening to Debbie Wileman’s homage to Judy. All I can say is Judy would have loved Debbie. She has captured Judy’s musical essence along with her love of lyrics. This is a beautiful tribute to the late, great Judy Garland.” - Carol Burnett“I didn’t realize how much I would have loved to hear Judy Garland sing “Defying Gravity” until Debbie Wileman and Steve Orich made it possible!” - Stephen Schwartz

On Friday 10 June 2022, Judy Garland celebrates her 100th birthday. My Pride 2022 series kicks off with a close examination of Judy’s status as gay icon, as well as my claim that Garland was, is, and remains the world’s greatest entertainer of all time. As always with Countermelody, the proof is in the performances, and I share a generous sampling of recordings, primarily from the final years of Judy’s life, that bolster that claim. Included are performances of songs by Harold Arlen, Yip Harburg, Ted Koehler, Ira Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart, Jule Styne, Burton Lane, Alan Jay Lerner, Cole Porter, Cy Coleman, Carolyn Leigh, Gilbert Bécaud, Wright and Forrest, Schwartz and Dietz, Charles Chaplin, and others, in live recordings from The Judy Garland Show, which ran for a single season in 1963-64; live concert performances from New York, Amsterdam, London, Paris, Philadelphia, and Copenhagen; and a smattering of rare studio recordings. I also discuss the impact of Judy’s enormous talent impact on my own life, as well as her still-substantial numbers of worldwide fans. Vocal guest stars include two other classic gay icons, Barbra Streisand, and Judy’s own daughter, Liza Minnelli.Countermelody is a podcast devoted to the glory and the power of the human voice raised in song. Singer and vocal aficionado Daniel Gundlach explores great singers of the past and present focusing in particular on those who are less well-remembered today than they should be. Daniel’s lifetime in music as a professional countertenor, pianist, vocal coach, voice teacher, and journalist yields an exciting array of anecdotes, impressions, and “inside stories.” At Countermelody’s core is the celebration of great singers of all stripes, their instruments, and the connection they make to the words they sing.

Judy Garland: Seconals, Benzedrine, and Dexedrine…Oh My
Susie Boyt picks Judy Garland, the child star who became one of the most famous entertainers of the twentieth century. June 2022 will be the centenary of her birth."All people ever said to me was, ‘You have got to toughen up,'" Susie told us. "You cannot go round nursing these wild cascades of feelings, or you’re never going to have a happy life. Then one day my mother took me to see The Wizard of Oz. It was the first film I ever saw at the cinema, and when I heard Dorothy singing Over the Rainbow, I thought, here is someone whose feelings seem to run as high as my own and she’s not hiding it, she’s not embarrassed by it, she’s not ashamed. She was leading with her feelings as though they were the best thing life contains."Joining Susie Boyt is John Fricke, leading Judy Garland expert who put her ability to thrill her audiences far ahead of the many tabloid accounts of her life.The presenter is Matthew Parris, the producer in Bristol is Miles Warde

Of course you know Judy Garland. The voice, the smile. Her biggest film, The Wizard of Oz. How she sings Somewhere Over the Rainbow. But you don’t know her like she is towards the end. How she looks, how she sounds. The people around her, the strangers watching. We’re not in Kansas, anymore…WARNING: This episode contains references to self-harm, sexual abuse and drug use.See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
