“ Deborah Bonham and her band are from and for the heart, soul and feet. No one does what they do. We need them” (BBC)
A regular festival favourite (Fairport Convention’s Cropredy Festival; Cambridge Rock Festival; Donington, The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival; The Great British Rock & Blues Festival and Great British Folk Festival), Deborah Bonham & her band began 2014 in the UK by taking the Giants of Rock festival by storm with an ecstatic crowd and an enthusiastic Classic Rock Magazine review together with a UK tour to coincide with the release of her new album ‘Spirit’.
In Europe, the band have performed at the Czech Republic’s first Rock festival alongside Ozzy Osbourne, Korn and Nazareth, toured the Czech Republic as a result of the success of the festival, performed by invitation at the Harley-Davidson Festival in Austria, France and Portugal and 2013 saw her breaking into France with two very successful tours culminating with a magnificent performance at The Festival of Women Singers at La Traverse, Cleon.
2014 has seen the band return to Europe by popular demand for two further tours of France with the French Press calling Deborah ‘Princess of Rock’. It has also seen a return to Harley Davidson Festival in Austria and a debut at Belgium’s ‘Spirit of 66’ club.
Deborah Bonham and her band have toured and performed with Paul Rodgers as well as Robert Plant, Van Halen, Ann Peebles, Humble Pie, Foreigner, Nazareth, Jools Holland and Stax label legend Steve Cropper. Her stunning band have also backed Paul Rodgers for several UK shows, which in 2103 featured Deborah in a stunning duet with Paul on the Free classic, ‘Oh I Wept’ to the delight of the sold out audience. Bad Company also invited Deborah to open for them in USA on their 40th Anniversary Tour. Deborah has now been invited by Paul Rodgers to perform at The Royal Albert Hall November 3rd 2014 as his Special Guest
Her new album ‘Spirit’ hosts a classic mix of Country, Blues, Rock, and Soul and has met with critical acclaim and such superlatives as ‘simply stunning’. Mixed and mastered in Nashville, it features Marco Giovino on drums (Robert Plant’s Band of Joy, Norah Jones) and her long standing Live band of Peter Bullick on guitar, Ian Rowley on bass and Gerard Louis on keyboards. The album also features a very special guest appearance from Robert Plant and pedal steel supremo BJ Cole.
2015 is now being booked with French, UK, Swiss and Scandinavian dates already in place.
