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.
This was a performance of top class music from the unsung ‘Queen of the Blues’ whose every breath is the Blues with all the style and sensuality of the great ladies past. Sheer vocal power allied to her stage persona and Blues emotion like Janis Joplin, Maggie Bell and Nina Simone combined. The Lady can sing the blues with her soul.
The honor of singing Elmore James’ signature song 'Dust My Broom' went to commanding British vocalist Deborah Bonham. She sings the way her brother (Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham) played the drums,vwith sheer force.
AMERICAN BLUES SCENE
It was so inspirational playing Free material with Deborah Bonham's band when we played charity gigs that I promised myself someday we would tour with this band.
PAUL RODGERS 'Free Spirit'
Sweetly soulful and powerful (think Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin), blues-rock singer-songwriter Deborah Bonham.
Strong voiced, personable, and quite the rock and roll singer, this woman (the sister of the late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham) earned a standing ovation at the end of her set. Clearly, a welcome addition to the tour.
ELMORE MAGAZINE USA (Stars Align USA Tour Holmdel, NJ)
A powerful rock band steeped in the primal intimacy of the Blues.

The Duchess of Blues Rock.
