DEBBIE DAVIES BAND at Times Square
Type: Music & Concerts
Debbie cut her teeth in Albert Collins' Ice Breakers and was a featured guitarist performing behind one of the most innovative bluesmen of all time. Since leaving Albert's band she has released 11 CDs, been honored with countless nominations and a WC Handy Award, and continues to grow as one of the world's outstanding blues players.
Davies rise to the upper echelon of blues music started at an early age as she absorbed the music heard constantly in her home. Her (professional) musician parents were either sitting at the piano or spinning discs on their turntable, filling the air with the sounds of big band jazz, harmony vocal groups, or the pop icons of the day. But the young Davies was particularly attracted to the bluesier sounds of her father's Ray Charles records, and by the age of 12 realized that her affinity for an instrument was not for the piano, but for the guitar.
