DEBORAH MAGONE has been crowned Rochester , NY’s “ Queen of Blues Rock” by Freetime Entertainment Magazine . A quadruple threat and an original artist on the House of Guitars / Mirror Records Label she’s currently receiving international exposure & airplay, stretching from the United States into Canada, Australia, France, the UK & Asia since her “ New Artist” (Alternate Realities) & “Best Video “, (“It’s All About Money”) consideration at the 54th & 55th GRAMMYS.
Deborah received Producers Choice Award for “Best Female Rock Musician 2012” at the 21st LA Music Awards held at the prestigious Avalon Theatre last fall. Founder & Executive Producer Al Bowman said that “Deborah Magone’s sound & musical style represents the most authentic rock n’ roll presentation our awards program has heard in the past two decades.” She and her band were 1 of 7 bands picked from over 10,000 submissions to perform live at the event in Hollywood, California for luminaries such as Producer Ron Nevison (Led Zeppelin, The Who, Heart, etc.) who was in attendance, who said that “Deborah is an electrifying powerhouse that commands the stage” and has since expressed interest in producing Deborah’s next cd .
Deborah’s current cd “Alternate Realities” consists of twelve original songs she describes as “ Rock and Kick Your Ass Blues!” ©dm , a combination of her high-energy guitar playing, powerful vocals & heartfelt lyrics.
Deborah grew up on the blues of Muddy Waters, Janis , & Robert Johnson, singing very early on and learning to accompany herself on the guitar at just 11 yrs old! “ Music kept me out of trouble. At 8yrs old I carried a small radio & listened to R&B & Rock music on Rochester radio every day.
I came from a broken home & music took me out of all that. I was too shy to join the high school chorus and was more of an artistic introverted type. I wanted to play guitar but being the oldest girl in a lower middle class Italian family, I wasn’t allowed. I would steal in to my brothers room when everyone was out, took his guitar & painstakingly taught myself on a guitar that was much too big for my little hands. Because of the strife at home, I got in to trouble from teenage alcoholism to other addictive behaviors, hanging out in bars at 14yrs young narrowly escaping death, before I decided to straighten up.”
She was barely legal at 18 when she was in her first rock band, named “Wired” and was asked to open for Ozzy Osbourne . However “At the age of 23 I developed severe ulcerative colitis which actually killed me. I was revived, and while I was fighting for my life in a small town hospital in Avezzano, Italy, I told myself that I had no intentions of leaving. I held on tight. I thought of the current album project with Capitol records & Grammy award winning artist Janice Marie Johnson that was waiting for me back in Los Angeles. I thought of my karate students, music students, my family, my Great Aunt & my Mom who sat at my bedside every day for weeks in that hospital. I refused to give up, failure was not an option. ”
Deborah’s original tunes are reminiscent of the blues rock of Humble Pie, & Zeppelin. Reviews & on-air interviews have praised this stunning blues rock dynamo with comparisons to the greats, with comments such as “Janis Joplin with a guitar” and “Bonnie Raitt with balls.”
A onetime student of Rochester, NY jazz guitar legend Richard “Dick” Longale ,and the only female member of his famous “Wailing Wall”, Deborah Magone has jammed with and opened up for some of the best between New York & California such as Peter Frampton , Lou Gramm, Eddy Money, Talas, Dakota, Shooting Star, JJ Bad Boy Jones , The Campbell Brothers Tammy Diddley (daughter of Bo), GRAMMY winner Janice Marie Johnson ( A Taste of Honey), Chris & Joe Beard , Mitch Mitchell (Jimi Hendrix), & Tim Bogert (Vanilla Fudge) among others. She’s played in venues too numerous to list, including a six month stint at the House of Blues (on the Disney lot in Anaheim, CA with 2 kids in tow!).
Deborah currently lives, creates and teaches music in Upstate, NY and on Skype !
