Debbie Saloman

Debbie Saloman

Debbie was born into a musical family in north-east London in 1983. Her father Nick was, and remains, a much respected bass guitarist and songwriter, known as Bevis Frond, and he introduced her to the world of recording studios in 1994 when, at the age of 10, she sang the vocals to a track called “The Radioactive Rabbit”. Eight years later, her own band, Hex, released “The Gold Dust Sessions” CD, covering standards such as “Summertime” and “Cry Me A River”. She then studied at Salford University in Manchester where she gained a Performing Arts degree and subsequently became a successful actress. Her sell-out, one woman, show “Get Happy”, written by her while at university - in which she played Judy Garland - was a triumph at the King’s Head Theatre in London in 2007, being described by as “nothing short of brilliance” and by the New York Times as “Heart-warming and often hilarious”. Following this, she played the lead role in the stage play “The Rise And Fall of Little Voice” on a UK tour in 2008. A review in the British Theatre Guide spoke of her “amazing voice”. As a vocalist, her versatility is astonishing and she used this to her advantage at the end of 2008 beginning a new career as a professional session singer. From September 2009 she started to focus on a solo recording career and released her debut album “Voyage of Discovery” on the Tarrab Music label in October and a dance EP “In The Heart of the Dancefloor” in April of this year. Broadcasting on Jango Internet Radio to listeners around the world she has gained over 10,000 fans, the largest number achieved by any of the emerging artists on that station and she has received more than 2,000 overwhelmingly positive comments from listeners. Her second album, “Hooked on Love”, was released to buy as a download from iTunes and Amazon, and as a CD from Amazon on Demand, on 4 May 2010. Debbie has also recorded a cover version of the Spandau Ballet track "Code Of Love" from the 1983 number one album "True".
