Deby Medrez Pier started out playing her melodramatic piaffesque tunes at friends couches in New York City. Later on became a sensation in her hometown Mexico City where she called out to underground crowds looking for outmost folklore and versatility. Medrez’s inspiring and melancholic tunes recall on echoes of the long forgotten Comedian Harmonistes, Andrew Bird and Nino Rota. Her songs are dedicated to universal and philosophical questions about life, religion, identity.
“Brooklyn-via-Mexico-City singer/songwriter Deby Medrez Pier depicts the final beauty of transience in her painterly songs. On the ukulele-cradled “The Last Time” (streaming below), for example, the musician conjures a sweetly fleeting seaside romance with a Hemingway-esque elegance while she conveys perhaps ephemeral personal frustration on the guitar-fuzzed “July.” Beyond its sheer prettiness, most striking about Pier’s music is its ageless nature; these deeply felt, sparsely-constructed tracks may sound like they came from early twentieth-century Paris but they’re just as vital in twenty-first-century New York.” – The Deli Mag
