Singer and songwriter John Mayer calls Atlanta his “musical home”– the place where he “came alive.” The well-known pop singer is one of the more famous examples of musicians, performers and artists of all backgrounds who found their way to the city in pursuit of both a career and a dream.
Today, WABE kicks off an occasional series profiling them with Deb Bowman. She is about to launch her second album this weekend. WABE’s Jim Burress caught up with her at the iconic Colonnade restaurant on Atlanta’s Cheshire Bridge Road. And in the attached audio postcard, Bowman shares a song and her story of how she made it to Atlanta.

Bowman’s Atlanta release for her second album, “Fast Heart,” is Saturday at 7 p.m. at 800 East Studios in Atlanta (800 East Ave. NE, Atlanta, GA 30312).
If you know of someone who has a story to tell about “Making it to Atlanta to Make it,” let WABE’s Jim Burress know. Drop him an email with the details and why the person would be a good person to focus on for the series. Email Burress: Jburress @WABE.org.
