Her artistry is largely expressed through original compositions that convey a diverse array of emotions.

Over the years, Deborah has been fortunate to work with many great San Francisco Bay Area musicians, especially internationally acclaimed pianist/arranger Frank Martin, who has constantly encouraged her to experiment with ideas that lie outside of her comfort zone. With an insatiable appetite for expanding her musical horizons, Deborah is committed to explore and push the envelope. This, in turn, is sure to delight her rapidly growing and dedicated audience, who can't wait for each new milestone that this gifted singer/songwriter is bound to achieve.
