Deb “Duke” is an acoustic singer/songwriter with a 3-octave range and folksy style, drawing inspiration from female artists including Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Heart, KT Tunstall and Paula Cole. She combines a passion for singing with multiple instruments including guitar, ukulele, tambourine and dulcimer, performing a fun variety of hits from genres including classic rock, folk, pop, soul and county. In her spare time she is in the studio recording her first album of original music.
I am available to entertain in bars, restaurants, wine and coffee shops, brew pubs, art shows, tiki bars, distilleries and private events and parties. I have also hosted successful open mics. I play timeless hits spanning decades from the 50’s to present, many genres including a few deep cuts . I am great at reading the audience and can accommodate requests. I am available both solo , a duo with bassist Gerry Runge and am lead singer with a band, Crosstown Classics.
I live and breathe music and am looking forward to playing at your next event!
