Over the course of an impressive career, Deborah Bonham has established herself as one of the finest blues-rock vocalists the UK has produced. A string of critically acclaimed album releases, captivating standing ovation concert performances at the Royal Albert Hall and London Palladium, prestigious European and USA festival appearances and collaborations with Paul Rodgers, Ann Peebles, Donovan, Chris Farlowe, Nazareth’s Dan McCafferty, Foreigner and Robert Plant has kept her at the very forefront of the international music scene.
Deborah and her powerful soul infused band, featuring players who have themselves played and recorded with Paul Rodgers, Robert Plant, Steve Marriott, Freddie Mercury and Rory Gallagher, have recently returned from a 2 month USA ‘Stars Align’ Ampitheatre Tour with Paul Rodgers, Jeff Beck and Ann Wilson (Heart), where Deborah opened each show with a mesmerizing set to standing ovations and her band backed Paul Rodgers for a selection of Free & Bad Company classics. Both Deborah and her band drew fantastic reviews on this tour as they performed across the USA following the huge success of the previous year’s UK ‘Free Spirit’ tour with Paul Rodgers.
2019 will see Deborah Bonham working on multiple new album releases. A new album of new original songs, an acoustic live album from the UK and USA tours ‘Free Spirit & Stars Align’, an American Soul Blues Songbook album with some wonderful classic songs and collaborations, and a Cream tribute album and film, recorded at London’s Abbey Road Studios in the company of Ginger Baker, Paul Rodgers, Maggie Bell, Bobby Rush, Joe Bonamassa, Bernie Marsden.
