EP with Ann Hampton Callaway, Bill Medley, and Casey Abrams
When a legend and icon like Quincy Jones raves about an artist by saying “her strong and sultry vocals are seductive and soul-soothing. Her talent and beauty are equally extraordinary. Whatever she sings she owns, making every note matter! One listen and you know…she is the real deal,” you can be sure music fans everywhere will take notice and wonder just who that artist is. In this case that would be Mississippi born, two-time #1 Billboard chart-topping vocalist Deborah Silver.
Deborah Silver has had a string of hit duets with celebrated artists including Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers, Jack Jones, Freddy Cole, Ann Hampton Callaway and Ray Benson of Asleep At The Wheel. Her upcoming releases include duets with superstars Tony Orlando, Ronnie Millsap, Pam Tillis, Steve Tyrell and Jazz icon Diane Schuur. She is currently at work recording a full album with The Count Basie Orchestra.
“Deborah Silver has it all: fantastic showmanship, a great swinging band, and, most of all, solid jazz chops.”
Deborah’s album, Glitter & Grits produced by industry legend Ray Benson, features musicians from his multi-Grammy award winning band Asleep at the Wheel, currently celebrating their 52nd anniversary. Glitter & Grits reinforces Silver’s immense versatility, as an artist taking us on a journey from jazz to the unique Western swing style bringing these songs to life in a dynamic and uplifting way. This album was voted Broadway World’s Best Commercial Recording, landed the #1 spot on both Traditional Jazz and Western Swing Charts, and crossed over to become #3 on the Weekly Top 50 Country Album Chart. Veteran Critic Rex Reed published a reaction to the album: “Tired of rock and allergic to country and western, I find the shock of what Deborah Silver has done to distill the essence of both musical genres into a fresh cocktail of combustible joy both a surprise and a thrill. The result is a unique and flavorful entertainment guaranteed to put a happy smile on every face at a time when the world needs one most. What a treat–hard to explain, but easy to love.”
