Soundscapes nominated for “Best Contemporary Instrumental Album”
by OWM (One World Music) February 15, 2018
“This is indeed the Music of Deborah Offenhauser; it is eclectic, delightful, totally, enjoyable and an album that can simply be enjoyed for enjoyment sake; no more no less.” Read more at:
“Irrational Exuberance” starts off with the sound of a horse running by and it ends the same way. This is all part of the music that Deborah presents. The sounds of life, people, nature, atmospheres and every day sounds that lead to her music and honestly, mix in equally well.”

“…That she can play the piano and play it very well, is obvious. This album, however, is an intriguing piece of artistry that’s a little out of the box, and showcases her growth, range, and immense talent as an artist and composer.
“Soundscapes” was recorded with renowned, Los Angeles based sound engineer, artist, and producer, James Linahon, whose work has included several well-known and major award-winning projects.”

“…listen to her magic touch on pieces like the opener, “Decidedly Joyful“… you will realize that I don’t use the words “diverse” and “enchanting” without cause… Deborah’s music is far from “just another New Age album“… this tune feels (very much) like the same kind of dynamics I heard when I first listened to…” Read the rest of the review at:
Soundscapes review by Kathy Parson
“[Soundscapes’] pieces have an optimistic spirit and the majority of them are quite melodic. A few tracks are more abstract and atmospheric, but all thirteen have a colorful story to tell.”
Soundscapes review by Vivek Kumar (India) “Throughout the album, she has presented a rich confluence of various instruments coupled with various moods of the piano.”

Candice Michelle of Aural Awakenings gives an extensive review of Soundscapes. “A musical chameleon of sorts, Deborah Offenhauser’s style is eclectic and hard to pigeonhole, which speaks to her versatility as both composer and performer. In conclusion, Soundscapes will likely most appeal to fans of neoclassical and contemporary instrumental music that possesses a uniquely experimental edge! ”
“From start to end it is a fabulous musical adventure. The Piano is such a versatile instrument, it can be happy or sad, it can be consoling or accusing, there are no limits to its ability in the hands of a great player. Deborah Offenhauser is that great player.”
“Deb, “Soundscapes” came out superbly – extremely creative, a total “new age” place for your skills. Really some wonderful melodies and spaces on this new endeavor by you… impressive! It’s an outstanding 1st class creative project that shows real artistry and serious depth as a composer.”
James Linahon (engineer for many Grammy nominees), Los Angeles, California
“[As your sound designer], your music was a delight to arrange. It is inspiring and calming for the mind at the same time.”
Markus Burger, Germany
“Slow cooking makes delicious music meals. You now have given birth to a new treasure for the world to enjoy. Your music and talent is great.”
Suzan Bader of DSM (Decidedly Superior Music) Publishing Company
“Your album “Butterflies” is a wonderful musical accomplishment.
The piano play in tracks like “They Can’t Take That Away From Me” conveys a tangible sensitivity that is rare in today’s music.
Your arrangements are fresh and unique and your play is just as delicate.
‘Lara’s Theme’ and ‘Unfoldment’ portray a more intense level of drama and add to the diversity of the entire album while showcasing your immense talent on the piano.
What a great product!
Diana Burnell Director of A&R Watchfire Music
