Inside the musical world of Debbie Lynch-White

In the musical universe of Debbie Lynch-White


Debbie Lynch-White's passion for music is no secret. 

The actress who is part of the cast of the third season from the series “The Flaw” even goes so far as to interpret his favorites in song on social media.

And this close relationship with music appeared very early in his life.

How do you choose the songs you cover on social media?

It really is a crush! Songs that I like to listen to or that I like to sing. When I think the text is good. Or the melody. I'm really a girl who goes to the heart in many things in life. For the music too.

Is there a song that asked you a bigger challenge to learn?

Yes when same! There have been many. I strummed “Smile” by Nat King Cole. I can't say that I've really mastered it yet. Or “You've Got A Friend” by Carole King, I found it a little more “tough”. But I'm not a pianist either. I'm just trying to accompany myself a little.

Besides, you have already done a show, “Once upon a time”, with songs written by women. Are you going to do this exercise again?

It's really funny because a few days ago, I was with the musical director of that show. Just to “chiller” at home. Then I had the nostalgia to do music shows. We talked about it. I don't know what form it's going to take, but I admit that it tickles me to do something in this direction again, but I don't know what else.

At what age did you start singing and playing an instrument?

Very young. My father played the guitar then we sang at home in the living room during evenings of time. All sorts of things: from Pink Floyd to the “Lion King” via Tracy Chapman, Alanis Morissette, Richard Séguin. My musical culture and my love of music really come from that childhood with my father. I was so excited to sing with him.

You're very busy as an actress, but have you ever had the idea of ​​devoting yourself to music for a while?

I've always said that I was an actress who sings. In the sense that above all things, I will always be an actress. That's who I am. But I admit that these days, I think maybe putting a little more time on something musical. But it will be in the next few years. This is not a short term project.

What band or album reminds you of your high school?

My high school is definitely Alanis Morissette, “Jagged Little Pill”. It came out when I was in sixth grade and it followed me to the end. P!nk too. The Spice Girls, the Backstreet Boys. I'm from that 90s generation. Nickelback! I really had a big Nickelback trip in high school. Ariane Moffatt, it was a little later for example. She had released her first album, I was at the beginning of my Cégep.

An album you can listen to without a toune skipper?

My friend Elliot Maginot's album, “Easy Morning”. It's too good! And “Feels Like Home” by Norah Jones, I listened to it a lot from cover to cover.

The artist you've loved the longest and still love today?

Alanis Morissette. I went to see her in show this summer when she came to Montreal. My God! I cried so much! I was in all my states. I felt like Debbie at 12. I had seen her in show at 12 years old with my father. Alanis Morissette, forever, this is going to be my girl!

Your favorite movie soundtrack?

I listened to the soundtrack a lot of ” Forrest Gump”. Then I also like the soundtrack of the film “Across The Universe”. I think they still “tweaked” the Beatles tunes quite well.

Apart from La Bolduc, your favorite biopic on the life of a singer or a singer?

I've watched so many! It is certain that in “La vie en rose”, the performance of Marion Cotillard was extraordinary.

The best concert(s) you have seen?

< p>Recently, I freaked out on Charlotte Day Wilson's show. Really, in show she is amazing! Very simple, but I really liked it. Then in terms of the biggest show, I would say P!nk. She gave a hell of a show at the Bell Centre. And Adele too, it was really beautiful moments.

Your most recent crush in music?

I discovered a girl who s call Ogi. The “Envy” song in particular. It's been playing on a loop these days at my place. Otherwise, the last album of the Boulay Sisters really made me trip. It's really good!

Your favorite Christmas album or song?

I really like Ella Fitzgerald's Christmas album. It's a staple that I really listen to a lot. Then Ginette Reno's Christmas songs too. She's not flat, Ginette! (Laughs)
