Debra had always wanted to sing the songs of JD Souther, James Taylor, John Hiatt and many more singer songwriters. So when Gary Van Egmond an Australian promoter who was touring The Highwaymen asked whether she would be the support act for The Highwaymen, Debra jump at the opportunity.
“One of the highlights of my career was to be the support act for The Highwaymen. It was an extr
aordinary experience and it reignited a dream that I could perform the songs closest to my heart. I had been performing in musical theatre and though I loved the chance to bring characters to life through song, the lack of freedom to change was always a challenge for me.” – Debra Byrne
Now after an amazing career as the leading lady of stage, television and film, Debra once again fulfils this dream.
