Singer, guitar player and songwriter, Debbie Bond is Alabama's blues activist and founded the award winning Alabama Blues Project, which works to preserve Alabama blues music. Rick Asherson may be British born, but he's all Alabama blues! Playing harmonica and keyboards, Rick accompanies Debbie on tour and in recordings.
Debbie Bond has been paying her dues in the Alabama backwoods for more than 30 years. Her singing has been compared to Bonnie Raitt and Maria Muldaur, both of whom she cites as being influences in her music. The truth is that Debbie does it her way, playing a dynamic mix of soulful originals and covers. Her impressive musical story includes years of performing with older traditional Alabama blues musicians, including Johnny Shines, Eddie Kirkland and Willie King. Her immersion in the blues has deeply flavored her guitar playing, soulful voice and original song writing, yet her sound is contemporary and original.
