Watching Debora Galan perform is like spending an enjoyable evening with a good friend. The engaging R&B / Jazz singer’s natural warmth and sincerity comes through in her music, making her performances a joy to behold.
With a style that evokes memories of Barbra Streisand and Sade, yet with a subtle Latin flavor, Debora’s fresh, clear voice and smooth tones soothe the soul, whether she’s serenading with a quiet love song or belting out a hot salsa number.
An accomplished songwriter, Debora’s music conveys her overriding sense of hope, that no matter how difficult our challenges in life may be there is still hope for a better tomorrow. Her album, All About Love, explores love in all its facets and reveals that there’s still a lot of good in the world; don’t give up.
Whether performing solo or backed by her own ensemble band Silk — a collective of musical talent assembled from some of Southern California’s best artists — Debora’s music never fails to satisfy. Equally comfortable performing in a small, intimate lounge or before a packed auditorium, Debora’s on-stage presence amazes and enthralls.
Debora’s professional career began at the age of 17 in Latin jazz and salsa clubs, where she performed with top ranked bands and opened for major artists in Washington, D.C. She has performed across the U.S., as well as in Canada, Spain, and Mexico, both live and in multiple recording projects covering a variety of genres including jazz, rap, gospel, and R&B.
On the west coast Debora has opened for Grammy Award winning vocalist Steve Tyrell, toured with Stellar Award winning artist/producer Kenny Smith, and currently performs in the San Diego area with Silk.
