Debby Smith belongs to a rare group of musicians who have the whole package: She is not only eye-catching on the stage, but she is also a "true" musician who started at an early age. Debby was already playing the piano at age six, and just a little later she was energetically collecting choir and band experience. She wrote her first songs at 14 years old and by then the young musician had chosen her path.
After seven years as an established member of the Living Water gospel choir in Hamburg, Debby Smith stepped into the spotlight and took her first tentative steps as a solo singer in bars and at events, for which she was booked because of her special repertoire of cover songs and original compositions.
Studio engagements for backing vocals and adverts followed when Debby was still just 15, and eventually she started working hard on her own material with help from producers and professional musicians.
But what does Debby's music sound like now? Take a blender, throw in some pop and soul and finish it all off with a pinch of jazz. Featuring personal and honest lyrics by a woman in her mid-twenties, her music offers a pleasure that entertains and inspires both musically and linguistically. Debby's star has only just begun to rise into the musical heavens, yet she already has the knowledge of a professional.
Whether as a front woman of various band projects, on stage in Malaysia, Chile or the USA, or in the studio with musical giants like producer Frank Peterson (who has worked with the likes of Sarah Brightman), the attention from the music world for this promising and fresh newcomer is growing steadily. Let's finish with perhaps her most personable fact: Debby does not rely on her success — quite the opposite in fact. She remains down to earth and hardworking, as since 2011 she has been studying for her bachelor's degree at the HfMT University of Music and Theatre in Hamburg. Her major, of course, as in life is singing.
