Performance, piano, guitar, voice
Composition, arranging, recording

Musician, songwriter and vocalist, Deborah Robinson performs a large repertoire on piano & guitar.  A powerful voice is complimented by well developed instrumental accompaniment having had a solid foundation in classical piano.

My formal training was in classical piano, & am also an accomplished guitarist, vocalist, & composer. After years of classical study, I was attached to be able to only play with sheet music. I retrained myself to improvise & think a different way about music.

“A well disciplined voice mixed with a true love for music is the magic combination Deborah Robinson has captured. Whether playing piano or strumming guitar, Deborah has a heartfelt quality to her songs. Belting out the blues is her speciality. Her version of Summertime will curl your hair. ” ~Rick Poltaruk, Yellowknifer Northern Stars
