JAZZ ARTIST DEBORAH SILVER TALKS NEW ALBUM, THE GOLD STANDARDS
Vocalist Deborah Silver is one of the finest talents seen in quite some time delivering incredible renditions of the treasured songs from the Great American Songbook. Hailing from the birthplace of the blues, Mississippi, Deborah Silver is a natural born entertainer, best expressed by critic Will Friedwald (Wall Street Journal) stating "I was pulled in by the personality, the charisma -- the life force. Deborah is a miraculously three-dimensional performer, which is to say that she hardly sings every song the same way, but there's an engaging upbeat quality in everything she sings."
On her latest album, The Gold Standards, produced by Grammy-winning producer Steve Tyrell and Jon Allen, with musical direction by two-time Grammy-winning arranger Alan Broadbent, Deborah Silver transports listeners to an era of sophistication and grace. Silver's "jewel of a new album" includes a duet with the iconic Jack Jones on an addicting version of "I've Got a Crush on You" and "The Glory of Love," featuring jazz diva Ann Hampton Callaway.
LegendsRadio.com and The Society for the Preservation of the Great American Songbook awarded Deborah Silver the Legend to Be Award for Album of the Year by a newcomer.
Whether singing a sultry ballad or belting out a vocal that physically defies the small package it's coming from, Deborah blends the Great American Songbook with Jazz and Blues gems, Country and Pop hits and Broadway favorites, delighting audiences nationwide from playing at Feinstein's/54 Below and Jazz at Lincoln Center in NY to music festivals nationwide.
Deborah has had the honor of touring with the Bob Hope USO Tour as her way of giving back to our nation's armed forces fighting abroad. Known for her benefit concerts and widespread philanthropy in support of many charitable organizations, Deborah will be donating 100% of all net proceeds from her newest album.s release day sales on Sept 16th, 2016 to research a cure for ALS in honor of her sister who is battling the disease.
Inspired by her sister battling Lou Gehrig's Disease to help all ALS patients and their families, Deborah Silver and her daughter, Madison, founded slamALS.org earlier this year to SLAM the door on ALS forever.
