Deb toured throughout the midwest and eastern U.S. in the 1970's and 80's promoting her independent release, "D.J.
Adler Here & Now," a collection of 12 original songs featuring the artist on vocals, percussion, and 6- and 12-string
acoustic guitar. It was distributed through Ladyslipper Music Catalog.
Deb donated countless performances at rallies and special events including support
of women's rights, gay rights, and Take Back the Night. She was the featured performer at Hartford, Connecticut's first Lesbian-Gay
Pride March in 1983, and traveled to women's and men's centers as well as half-way houses and facilities for recovering
addicts to share her music and personal story of coming out as a lesbian and living free of addiction. Deb
has continued to work to support these and other social/planetary issues through the years.
In October 2005, Deb released her
"Songbyrd" CD - a collection of 9 original songs - through Silverstream Music Inc. Future CD releases include a digitally re-mastered "D.J. Adler Here &
Now", "Homegrown", a 2-CD set tracing her development as a performer and songwriter from 1965 through the 1990's in studio
sessions and intimate settings; and "Livin' Your Dreams"... a studio production showcasing
recent compositions including the title song, "Got To Be" "Because You Believe" and more...
