Haunting voice and soundscapes....
Deborah Henriksson is a Grammy nominated American born Swedish singer and lyricist.
Her music is straightforward, with simple or orchestral soundscapes,
sometimes playful, sometimes full of dark beauty. The genre is a mix of Americana, pop, Celtic and folk.
Swedish music magazine Lira writes: ”The music finds its cement and individuality in the voice which is unmistakably her own.”
Deborah released her fifth album ”Near and Far” in August 2017 (and received a production prize toward its making by the Swedish Folk at Heart Festival in 2016). The album was selected for the first round of the American Grammy’s 2018 in the category ”Best Pop Vocal Album” and it has received brilliant reviews in the United States, Sweden, and Australia. Songs from ”Near and Far” are nominated for prizes in the prestigious UK Songwriting Contest 2017.
Her song "Whisper" was voted nr 1 for eight weeks on the Swedish Independent Chart. Other songs have enjoyed significant radio airplay in every state in the U.S. and every province in Canada, but also, among many other countries, in the United Kingdom, Sweden, France, Poland, the Netherlands, Australia and China. Deborah has also been on several American TV programs in New York and New England and her music videos have been aired on over 60 American TV channels.
Deborah has toured in the U.S., Great Britain, Ireland, Sweden and Austria.
A new long-awaited tour in Sweden is in the works.
