About

Debbie Davis has a vast and beautiful voice, awarded ‘Runner Up Best Vocalist of the year’ by The Scottish Jazz Awards 2009 Debbie's repertoire is versatile and impressively extensive in range. Often outperforming originals her excellence is instantly recognisable and has been compared to Barbara Streisand, Eartha Kitt as well as her greatest heroine, Nancy Wilson. With a compelling stage presence, she has the air of someone who is clearly having a ball singing in Portuguese, Italian, French and English. Whether backed by nineteen musicians or only one or whether singing ballads or up-tempo classics, Debbie is an exceptional and talented artist as well as a memorable performer.

Debbie boasts a variety of the best of Scotland’s musicians as her back up band. From award winning Erik Hansen’s orchestra, Martin Kershaw and Konrad Wiszniewski to the magnificent Tom Finlay of Barbara Morrison fame.

Her debut CD ‘This Midnight Voice’ was released independently last summer and has been exceptionally well received in Britain and Europe.
