This is the first time all of our songs are in the top 25! That’s amazing & thank you all! That “Miles Yet To Go” has had 152,000+ of the 300,000+ plays! I’m thankful that God gave me the words, even when I was turned away from Him and that the song came together with the band – that the words, melody, and music touch those who listen to it and helps them with depression – whether it’s mild to severe and requiring medication. Thank each one of you who have reached out to let me know how the song helps you! You’re always in my prayers!

Thank you so much for being on this journey with us, falling under the spell of the magic that was Rough Innocence, it’s music, it’s members, it’s inspiration, and the magic n’ our sound!

We have 429 People in our network and 1,471 Subscribers to our Newsletter Mailing list! Thanks for your sincere interest! If you’d like to receive our newsletter, send me a message with your email and I’ll send it separately off-site!

Thanks to Joe Tyson, Rick Risberg & Dale Duffy who are the founding members & came up with to totally awesome & amazing name for the band, “Rough Innocence”. I cannot think of a cooler name, ever! Thanks for letting Edward Gerlach, my now ex-husband, Kelly Ryan, his sister, be guitarist and lead singer and myself, Deborah R Force-Shy-Gerlach-Culver, letting me tag along and surprisingly help in the background writing melodies and lyrics, to join you to write and create more magic that was already started by you three!

Many of the fans & even family members of the band begged to have access to our music because their CD’s had all wore out! That’s why I created this page, as a memorial to the band, the music ‘n the magic that put its spell on all who heard or saw Rough Innocence perform!

The magic of writing with you all was that it felt everything God had put you on this earth to do, the gifts He blessed us with and everything that made us unique was being utilized in those wonderful times in practice and jamming out new songs!

~RI~

FAN CORNER: We love hearing from you! Wow! Thanks for all the love, encouragement, enthusiasm and hearing your personal comments and opinions! Here are some of the latest! The following messages were from our last newsletter as well, as it takes a little bit to hear from y’all!

Stella - Hey I've been trying to search for your music on iTunes but with no success at all, gimme some info or somehow to find it...I desperately want your song as phone ringtone, thanks!
Reply From RI/Deborah: Hi Stella, Thanks so very much for reaching out! When I started the Number 1 Music band page, I had lost track of three of the members: Joe Tyson, Rick, Risberg, and Dale Duffy. They are the three original members to the band, and Joe Tyson, and own and trademark/copyright to the band name. Once they discovered that I had the page that wasn't a problem but I had also done things with iTunes and everything for wanting to purchase and have our music on other devices, but they felt our music shouldn’t be offered there. Since Rough Innocence broke up in 1994, Joe and Rick have formed us different band called, "Black Water Greed" which has a male lead singer, who is very versatile in their range like Kelly is. They are available and all the music online sites if you'd like to check them out.
BLACK WATER CREED link
Album: Circle Of Sin 2019 My favorite song is “Till Death Do Us Part”! The whole album is great! Please check them out. The band includes former founding RI members: Joe Tyson, Drummer & back vocals & lyricist/song writer & Rick Risberg, Lead Guitar & back vocals & lyricist/song writer.
Thanks again so much for reaching out! Love, peace, blessings and Keep On Rockin'!

Andrei Avanesov - How you measure success is more important than how the world measures it...Miles Yet To Go is incredibly fantastic. Just placed a link to you on my FB page. 1/25/24
Reply From RI/Deborah: Dear Andrei Avanesov, Thanks so much for reaching out to us about your love for our music and especially "Miles Yet To Go" by saying you find it incredibly fantastic! Thanks! It's special to me particularly as I wrote the words and created the vocal melody and was first to sing it into being while the music of the song was jamming and just formed! I agree there is more to success than numbers of plays of our songs...it's the hearts our music touches that most proves to me the success and Miles seems to be the one to do that the most. Thanks for putting a link to our N1M page! It's very much appreciated! Hoping you have a great weekend, keep warm and safe for the rest of the winter and enjoy the newness of spring when it breaks out in several months’ time. It'll be 62 revolutions around the sun for me this March! I was born in 1962 and now will be 62! LOL Look for your email mentioned in the next newsletter! Ta Ta! Love, peace, blessings and keep on Rockin'! ~ Rough Innocence ~ Deborah R Force-Shy-Gerlach-Culver

~RI~

Robert Klein: Heeeeloooo I need so desperately to download all your tunes, please let me know how to do this! I promise to share it with my friends and spread the word ...I have many friends around the world. Peace & Love!
Reply From RI/Deborah: Dear Robert, I know that you and many others would love to have our music on all the sites, such as Spotify, iTunes, etc… At one time we did, but I didn’t have contact information for the whole band to get their permission and once they all knew, it was decided that the music should be taken off those platforms. The only thing that I could suggest is set up the www.numberonemusic.com/roughinnocence site up and have it playing from your TV with a good sound system if you have a smart TV that can search the internet and then use your phone to record the songs and then play them from your own personal phone recordings. Stella above was hoping for that too and that’s the best solution I can come up with. I don’t’ think we have any of our original CD’s that we made back in 1992. Even my son and baby brother wore out their CD’s as well! Thanks for your sincere love and earnest desire for our music. Have a great weekend! Love, Peace, Blessings and Keep On Rockin’! ~ Rough Innocence ~ Deborah R Force-Shy-Gerlach-Culver

Personal News: Enjoying the touch and go weather here, more on the spring side than the winter – but I’ll take all the nice days, anytime! How many days until Spring? Tuesday, 19th March 2024, 8:07pm - Thursday, 20th June 2024, 1:51pm. Northern Hemisphere. 39 Days 10 Hours 7 Minutes 45 Seconds – & Counting! LOL

Enjoying the many benefits of the living ketogenic lifestyle & intermittent Fasting since 2017, at almost 62 years of age, I feel the healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. It’s amazing all the ways in which keto/if changes you, your body, your brain, your health, reverses aging and so much more! So thankful to have found it! I feel like God made the diet for me, because all the foods on it, I have never felt deprived in any way! In fact, I often joke that if God came to you and asked, “What’s your favorite food?” Many would answer – ice cream, pizza, etc… And imagine God saying to you, “Well eat all you want of that and you’ll be healthy and lose weight!”???!!! Well, that’s how I feel eating the foods in the keto diet! Their all my favorites foods that I never realized I could eat and get healthy and lose weight – plus feel not only great, but fantastic!!!!

~RI~

Wishing y’all a swift end to winter, that everyone have a place to live in safety, all things that are needed and God give you the desires of your heart! Until next time, Same Bat Time, Same Bat Channel! LOL! May you have Love, Peace, Blessings & Always Keep On Rockin'!

A quick if not brief message ~

Forgive People ~

In your life, even those who are not sorry for their actions. Holding onto anger only hurts you, not them.

...and I would go on further to say this ~

Forgive Yourself ~

No matter what or who, especially of things that occurred in your life with or to people who are no longer alive to ask forgiveness from!

Holding onto that hurt and not allowing yourself to experience true unearned forgiveness will hurt you in so many ways and manifest itself in illnesses in heart, soul, mind, body and spirit for punishing yourself with condemnations God never meant for any human, let alone you, yourself to bear! (This why Gods Love & Forgiveness is Unconditional!)

Those you seek forgiveness from have already given it to you, so has God! And God wants you to release that unforgiveness so He can heal you, help you attain the changes in yourself and your life that you are seeking.

By releasing this unyielding heart, soul, mind, body and spirit ~ allows God to answer your prayers, release blessings, provisions and direction in your life that you've been seeking which has you struggling to understand why God has not answered you, your prayers or were assuming that God was not speaking to you! When He's been speaking to you in so many ways ~ but unforgiveness can block the hearing of not just your physical ears but hearing in your heart, soul, mind, body and spirit too!

Consequences of Unforgiveness:

1. Unforgiveness is a sin which causes separation from God, which makes you feel He's not there, not listening or doesn't care! When the complete opposite is true!

2. The Holy Spirit will not depart from you but will be unable to do the work needed in you and your life.

3. Unforgiveness will close doors in your life that God wants to open and leaves an opening for evil spirits to influence or attack you.

4. Unforgiveness will hinder your progress and blessings.

5. You will live an unhappy life, not the joyous one that God wants and has planned for you.

6. Your unforgiveness will hinder those you've not forgiven...ESPECIALLY when you do not FORGIVE YOURSELF!!!

Thanks! I sincerely appreciate hearing your assessment of our music and your great compliment is one many others have expressed too! Since Rock has seem to be a lost category anymore and if you want to perform rock music...it seems you have to be country...since that's where most the rock sounding music seems to be anymore. I hope rock comes back again. Have an amazing holiday! ~ Rough Innocence ~ Deborah R. Force-Shy-Gerlach-Culver

Oh wow. You guys rock it!
First time listener, instantly hooked.
Thank you for introducing me to your sound! ~ Mildred Cho 12/22/22

On a fantastic personal note, I finally got the last of the paperwork to the apartment office so that I'll be approved for a new apartment and end my period of homelessness but never forget the blessings that God brought to me, His grace and protection, providing for me in each and every way!

I will always be thankful whether I have a home or not! Just one benefit of my homelessness journey is being closer to God and always sensing His presence! The other amazing thing about going through this hard time is discovering what I am meant to be doing with my life ~ which is helping others going through homelessness and other hard times!

God is good in good times and in bad times! That's what is so wonderful about a God who never changes...who is always there.

---------------------------------------------------------
Wish everyone a very Merry Christmas Hoping you're all enjoying the beautiful winter weather and that each and everyone of you, your families and friends are well and Y'all take care! Keep warm while things get colder!
---------------------------------------------------------
Wishing everyone Love, Peace and Blessings & Always Keep On Rockin'!

On a fantastic personal note, I finally got the last of the paperwork to the apartment office so that I'll be approved for a new apartment and end my period of homelessness but never forget the blessings that God brought to me, His grace and protection, providing for me in each and every way!

I will always be thankful whether I have a home or not! Just one benefit of my homelessness journey is being closer to God and always sensing His presence! The other amazing thing about going through this hard time is discovering what I am meant to be doing with my life ~ which is helping others going through homelessness and other hard times!

God is good in good times and in bad times! That's what is so wonderful about a God who never changes...who is always there.

---------------------------------------------------------
Wish everyone a very Merry Christmas Hoping you're all enjoying the beautiful winter weather and that each and everyone of you, your families and friends are well and Y'all take care! Keep warm while things get colder!

Wishing everyone Love, Peace and Blessings & Always Keep On Rockin'!

Frederic Chen ~ Hi guys! thanks for the mail!
ur songs are so meaningful, thanks u help me get out of the confusion:) 11/24/23 (You're very welcome Frederic! I'm glad the deeper meaning of our songs help calm the confusion!)

Frederic, My favorite verse used to be Jeremiah 29:11, but then I read the complete passage and it is even more amazing!

Hoping this might help too! This is what the Lord says: "But then I will come and do for you all the good things I have promised, and I will bring you home again. For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you," says the Lord. "I will end your captivity and restore you... I will gather you out of...where I sent you and will bring you home again..." ~ Jeremiah 29:10-14

Sending you best wishes for the coming holidays and the brand new year! Love, Peace, Blessings, and keep on Rockin'! ~ Rough Innocence ~ Deborah R Force-Shy-Gerlach-Culver

Hi! I just have to say that you create a very good music and it appeals to a lot of people. I'll be listening to you, I've just added your n1m page to my faves. Heath Wolf

Hey, I personally think that it shows that you
are more musically gifted if you can bring us different kinds of music than just playing the same thing tune after tune. I like your music very much because of its diversity and you are not tryin' to repeat yourself or any artist out there. I appreciate the creativity
you put into your music style.
From a true fan of all your music.
Heath Wolf
---------------------------------------------------------
On a fantastic personal note, I just need one more bit of paperwork so that I'll be approved for a new apartment and end my period of homelessness but never forget the blessings that God brought to me, His grace and protection, providing for me in each and every way!

I will always be thankful whether I have a home or not! Just one benefit of my homelessness journey is being closer to God and always sensing His presence!

Another amazing blessing is as I started the process to get my Drivers License here, a friend of my son is gifting me with a 2020 Pickup Truck with 7,000 miles on it, under warranty for 3 more years and covering the insurance as well! I asked God for transportation but never expected something so nice, etc... God is good and the dear friend is so sweet to do this! Has become part of my family!
---------------------------------------------------------
How our songs came together Part Two

WORLD WITHOUT HEROES was a song penned and composed by Kelly our lead singer and she sang and played the song for the band and we were instantly in
love with it! The band joined in and what you hear is the beautiful result! It's timeless but also very much a picture of the state of our world is in right now!
---------------------------------------------------------
PEACE MACHINE - The music and most of the words were created by the first assembly of Rough Innocence with the lyrics written by Aubrey the original lead singer. The band reworked it and Kelly n Deborah altered some of the lyrics and this is the fantastic result! Meaning: The human race decides to put "perfect machines" in charge of the world and as humans we're considered "imperfect" the machines decided that they should be eliminated! Quite a prophetic tale should we hand everything over to AI!
---------------------------------------------------------
LIVING IN THE CITY: Is a great gritty rock and roll song! The original formation of Rough Innocence created it and a little tweaking by Kelly and her killer voice and the fantastic song is the result!
---------------------------------------------------------
Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving in the States and every where else that it is celebrated! Hoping you're all enjoying the beautiful fall weather and that each and everyone of you, your families and friends are well and Y'all take care! Keep warm while things get colder!
---------------------------------------------------------
Wishing everyone Love, Peace and Blessings & Always Keep On Rockin'!

We love hearing from you on the website email but also replies to our newsletter updates! Will share others comments each week too!
---------------------------------------------------------
On a fantastic personal note, I have just been approved for an apartment that I shall be moving into soon! Thanks for your thoughts and prayers while I've been homeless since Januarys Friday the 13th, 2023 and would you believe it I got my acceptance news on Octobers Friday the 13th too!!! So, I definitely think Friday the 13ths are not bad at all!
---------------------------------------------------------
When I stepped out of my apartment with the possessions I could fit inside my suitcases...I had no clue to where I would live, where I would go, what I would find and experience on this brand new journey...never having been evicted or homeless before! All of us had seen the tragic news of so many homeless being hurt, preyed upon or killed during the pandemic. So, although I may have been shaking in my shoes… I put my trust in God. An organization had told me about local shelters to go to, but first I had to take my almost 8-year-old cat Jinx to a shelter to put up for adoption. I rescued Jinx when he was eight weeks old, and now almost 8 years later I had to give up my sweet dear cat who was also my support animal. He became that once my second husband died in 2016. Although it was very hard for me to do, I took my kitty to a no kill shelter, thankfully he was adopted within a week and now lives in a loving home. All warm, fed and cared for.
---------------------------------------------------------
I then showed up at the overnight women's shelter in Denver at Samaritan House. I didn't know what to expect and I was just thankful for warmth, a place to lay my head, some food, which I was too nervous to eat even half of it
---------------------------------------------------------
Luckily, I met a great caseworker at The Gathering Place who helped me sign up to become part of the Samaritan House 7 to 9 month program and I was quickly excepted there. At the same time I also applied for acceptance to a women's ministry home
---------------------------------------------------------
Once I was in the better Samaritan house shelter, I felt much more secure. but at night time it's hard to sleep because even though I felt more secure I felt that I needed to be wakeful because you never knew who was going to try to take things from you or possibly hurt you.
---------------------------------------------------------
In March I was contacted by the women's ministry home and started the process to be excepted there. And April 17 was my first day in a place that was a house, a home. A place that I could go to sleep at night and not have fear of anyone trying to hurt me or take anything from me.
---------------------------------------------------------
in the time from leaving my apartment and walking into this new home, all the things that I feared that could possibly happen to me… Never occurred! No one who tried to hurt me, fight me, argue with me, or attack me in anyway! All the ladies that were beside me in the three different shelters we're experiencing theft of cash, ID, phones, even false teeth! Nothing was ever stolen for me! (Well, except for two lacy bras that were pretty, I hope whoever has them uses them well.)
---------------------------------------------------------
I know it was God, who arranged each landing place, which is what I call each place that gave me shelter, food, a place to rest, a place to be clean, a place to recover healthwise and in many other ways. I trusted Him to take care of me and He did, and I knew that my next landing place would always be better, and it was!
---------------------------------------------------------
Having been in this beautiful home with many other women and their children and the wonderful staff, all sharing their love, their care, and keeping me in their prayers as I also keep them. The Lord led me to help these women, just by being a good listener, and give advice when asked with words the Lord gave me. I was also the donations coordinator and help as a leadership trainee.
---------------------------------------------------------
Now, I will soon be in my next landing place that God Himself has provided. I've been so busy here at this home that the thought of my next landing place was not even on my mind, or even on my radar. So when the apartment complex called, I was totally surprised that I had made the top of their waiting list well before the year that they had told me; and the next day, after my meeting with them being approved!
---------------------------------------------------------
God is very good, He is very good all the time, and He has to me for most of my life! He is good to me when things are bad, and He's good to me when things are good! I completely trust him and I'm so thankful that that trust give me a peace that so many other people do not have.
---------------------------------------------------------
Love Will Be Waiting: the words and music of this song were inspired by my husband's acoustic guitar, playing one day, as soon as I heard the music I had to run inside and get pen and paper and join him on our back porch. I had to write the words as fast as I could, because they are coming so quickly. The song as it is is exactly as I wrote it and I did not have to work at it. At the next band practice, Ed played the song, and I sang it, and the band joined in and created it, and Kelly sang the song with the same notes and melody but with her amazing pipes to be exactly as you hear it on the site.
---------------------------------------------------------
The meaning behind the song: There are many songs sung about soldiers and warriors going to war, but not many about those that love them, and are waiting for their return at home. At the time of this song writing, my youngest brother was in Iraq and Afghanistan and I wanted him and others to know that so many love them and we're waiting, waiting for them to come home. It's not easy to be on the waiting end just like it's not easy being on the fighting end..
---------------------------------------------------------
Miles Yet To Go: The lyrics for Miles Yet To Go came to me one day, and I added it to a stack of papers with other lyrics, lines and song, ideas, and poems that I kept with me and brought with me to each band practice. Rough Innocence was so talented and would start jamming and you could tell when the jam was becoming a song. It would be at that moment that I would dig through my papers, and find something that was meant for this music. Other times I would write as they were doing the song, and it would fit perfectly. Often when writing the lyrics, I would hear music which ended up mostly being the melody of the song and when the music came out that it belonged to, I would get up and sing it. The band would like it and Kelly would take it from there with her voice, but following the melody that I had sung.
---------------------------------------------------------
The meaning behind the song: This song is one of encouragement, although also not knowing what lies ahead of believing that only good things will come. This song almost didn't make it on the album. We had a good 30 songs we had written and we're playing at local clubs and we had a following and everyone loved all of them. We had to gather money enough to go into a studio ourselves, and create an album, but just enough money for an eight song EP. The band had chosen seven songs, and they were having a hard time, deciding what the last song should be. Which kind of tells you about the title of our album "You Decide". The band were going over the songs again and then they came to me and asked what song they thought I would like or should be on the album. My response was, "Miles Yet To Go". soon after we recorded the album, there was a "Battle Of The Bands" contest in 1992 at the York Fairgrounds in York Pennsylvania. We entered the contest, and we were one of three bands to make it to the final show! The Battle Of The Bands was the opening act for the band Kix that night! We got second place with an original lineup, which I think is fantastic, considering the other bands did covers.
---------------------------------------------------------
Dark Eyes: the song Dark Eyes was written lyrics and original musical inspiration by her lead singer Kelly. She brought it to the band and jammed by Rough Innocence taking her music and added its special brand of rock 'n' roll to it. Similar to what we would do with cover songs, we would "Rough Innocize It"! Cover tunes became harder, more powerful than the original versions and were equally asked for as well as our own original songs!
---------------------------------------------------------
The meaning behind the song: Dark Eyes we think it's pretty self-explanatory. If you listen to the story in the lyrics, you get exactly what it's all about. And as I didn't write it personally it's kind of hard for me to tell you more than that.
---------------------------------------------------------
Our Album: Haunted Nights, followed by Dark Eyes were the first two songs on the album. They really go together, even though written by two different women who were in sync with each other and still are to this day. Kelly was my sister-in-law, but I always consider her my sister even though her brother, and I have parted ways. We often could finish each other's thoughts, and you didn't want to play Pictionary against us. LOL So, although the songs were from two different writers, it didn't sound that way.
---------------------------------------------------------
and my next newsletter to you, I'll pick three more songs to explain how they were created and what the meaning was behind the song. Please let me know if you like this. It's kind of like getting liner notes without the album cover.
---------------------------------------------------------
As a result of placing second, a local music magazine critiqued our album in their next issue. "While we love the album, we don't understand why the last song is on this album. We think it is too commercial!" LOL which translates into we could've gone somewhere on it and it would've been popular. We were only a band for about another year and our lead singer left, and is now doing Christian music. We tried other singers and no one could match Kelly's magical voice. So the band broke up... but due to the site and many of our fans following when we were performing, we're asking to be able to have access to our songs. So that is why I created this memorial site on Number 1 Music. And as I've been able to see it has all of you have confirmed. Our music is still got its own special kind of magic, and is reaching out to all of you.!
---------------------------------------------------------
Hoping each and everyone of you, your families and friends are well and Y'all take care! Keep warm while things get colder!
---------------------------------------------------------
Wishing everyone Love, Peace and Blessings & Always Keep On Rockin'!
