Singer, guitar player and songwriter Debbie Bond has been paying her dues in the Alabama backwoods for over 30 years. Influenced by the famed sounds of Muscle Shoals, her impressive musical story includes years of performing with older traditional Alabama blues musicians, including Johnny Shines, Sam Lay, Eddie Kirkland and Willie King. Her immersion in Alabama blues has deeply flavored her guitar playing, soulful voice and original song writing — yet her sound is contemporary and original, incorporating soul, blues, and jazz influences. She has toured extensively in Europe including France, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, luxemburg, England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. She is the co-founder of the award-winning Alabama Blues Project, an educational non-profit devoted to preserving and promoting Alabama's rich blues heritage.
