Deborah Bonham, over the course of an impressive career, has established herself as one of the finest Blues, Rock and Soul singers that the UK has produced. A string of critically acclaimed original albums and captivating standing ovation concert performances (Royal Albert Hall, London Palladium and on the extensive 2018 USA ‘Stars Align Tour’ with Paul Rodgers, Jeff Beck and Ann Wilson of Heart) have consistently garnered rave reviews.
