Deborah Davis comes to Istanbul stage

U.S. singer Deborah Davis will be on stage at Istanbul’s JC’s on Feb. 14, 17, 18, and 19 as part of ongoing Garanti Jazz Green concerts.

A native of Texas, Davis sings all genres, from jazz and classic to gospel and from pop to country and R&B. She is a gifted singer and consummate performer with a warm angelic voice that has captivated and seduced audiences throughout the world. Davis is also a poet, lyricist, actress, artist, dancer, teacher and athlete, but it is her singing that makes one really take notice.

Although not from a musical family, Davis said she had been singing her entire lifetime. With no one to emulate and no real musical influences, she developed her own style of singing, creating her own opportunities to sing.

She has also led bands featuring many of New York's young lions of jazz such Delfeayo Marsalis, James Williams, Benny Green, Cyrus Chestnut, Marc Cary, Christian McBride, Peter Washington, Ron Affif, Russell Malone, Jeff Wats, Greg Hutchinson, Brian Blade, and too many others. Her performances have generated rave reviews from the New York Times, New York Newsday, and the Amsterdam News.

One of the favorites of former U.S. President Bill Clinton, Davis also gives volunteer concerts to support leukemia and lymphoma groups.

Tickets for her Istanbul concerts are available at Biletix.
