Deborah Ledon


Captivating… Electrifying… Unforgettable…
Sexy singer-songwriter and seasoned entertainer Deborah Ledon is as extraordinary as her life story. 

A native Cuban, her family pulled off a daring escape to Canada when she was just a two-year-old toddling around her impoverished neighbourhood looking for food. 

That audacious theme seems to have set the stage for her life. 

Deborah frequently draws from her challenging life experiences for lyrical inspiration and earned international acclaim with her raw and edgy album “Spilling Inside Out”.

Deborah has a powerful melodic voice and a spellbinding stage presence. A crowd favorite at jazz festivals, the vocally versatile high-energy dynamo has fronted and toured with a variety of bands, ranging from a 25-piece big jazz/swing band to country, rock, punk, dance and Latin bands. Now backed by some of Vancouver’s most talented musicians, Deborah is boldly reclaiming her Cuban heritage with an exotic, seductive jazzy sound that is captivating an ever-increasing stream of fans.
