Indie Soul: The Colemans and Debora M. Ricks


— The soulful sound of some very talented homegrown music artists and the producer of a popular radio show are on tap for this week’s edition of Indie Soul.

Butch and Rhonda Coleman: Butch and Rhonda are musicians who combine jazz and funk to create their unique sound. On Sunday, March 2, 2014 they performed songs from their new CD “Night Sketches” in front of a packed house at The Creative Alliance. The husband and wife team have produced a wonderful CD. This CD is not just for music lovers, but people who are in love with love. With tracks like, “Here I Go Again,” “Fallen,” “Carry My Heart,” and “We Belong Together,” there will be plenty of quiet nights at home with a bottle of wine and dinner for two as you listen to the Coleman’s CD on repeat. A mix of up-tempo grooves round out a very enjoyable and classy sound. Please support them and pick up the CD/Digital download today:

Debora M. Ricks is the producer of “The Anthony McCarthy” Show on WEAA. She has written a book designed to help people understand why they are being dumped. The book is entitled “Why did he Break Up With Me? Lessons in Love, Loss & Letting Go.”


“Letting go can be hard,” says Ricks. “Even when you know the relationship isn’t good for you, letting go can hurt. But we let go so we can create a vacuum, so to speak, in our life. Because life abhors vacuums, now we’re available for a new love, adventure, experience.”

The book covers a multitude of topics like dealing with emotionally abusive relationships, being strong and independent, and managing expectations. The book is not just for women; men can learn a few things as well.

Ricks added, “I wanted to offer something to people, especially women, that will help them get unstuck, so they can be open and ready for love when it comes again. I show women how to get closure.”
