A passionate Latina, Deborah Ledon is a formidable force of tenacity and talent. From an early age she was singing and dancing, and over the years, whether through theatre or with a band, her voice has allowed her to cross genres and stereo-types seamlessly. From country to rock, punk to Big Band, funk and urban to now Latin jazz/ pop and even an Elvis tribute band, this gal’s infectious love of music will have you smiling and dancing in your seat!
Her career is directed by her heart and she has had many prestigious shows and awards as a result. Her first album, Spilling Inside Out, which she self-financed and wrote won her Best New Jazz/ Folk Artist in the U.K. for 2004, and charted on the 2005 Euro-Americana charts. She has shared the stage with Paul Anka, her 2009 TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival performance at CBC Studio One was broadcast Canada-wide, and as well her band was the grand finale at the 2010 TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival.
Deborah’s 6-pcs project represented Canada at the 2010 Cultural Olympiad, and has performed at the exclusive Harmony Arts Festival for four consecutive years. In 2013 she was awarded Vancouver’s “Best of the City”. Deborah has been sharing her voice and heart with numerous projects including requests to record for others in both English and Spanish and is well-known for her infectious energy and mega-watt smile.
Her recent album, Diving For Pearls was released in September of 2014 and has been receiving accolades. Her Christmas song made it on the U.S. Billboard Charts and on the Smooth Jazz Top 20 charts at # 11. Her willingness to grow as an artist is well-known, and her fearlessness and integrity are well respected.
Deborah has been described as the perfect blend of Diana Krall, Sade, and Gloria Estefan with a touch of “A Chorus Line” thrown in for one spicy, engaging Latin-inspired serving of jazz/ pop sound!
