Luminous Jazz Vocals
“Her voice, like the garments she often wears, is full of shimmering gold threads, intricately woven around rich dark textures and warm honey tones” Roane Shepperley, Mid-West Jazz
Debbie Duncan, the Twin Cities’ “First Lady of Song” as she is so often referred to by media people, club owners, and dj’s, is a stunning and versatile vocalist who captivates audiences and jazz musicians. Minneapolis Star Tribune reports “She’s superb on funky upbeat workouts, tender ballads and all kinds of jazz numbers; she energizes the ordinary and puts her stamp on just about everything she does.”
What Other People Have Been Saying...
“Duncan’s a terrific entertainer… But more than that, she’s a superb singer – probably the finest in an area that boasts some excellent female vocalists… She showed just how good she is.. when she tackled ballads, be-bop, blues to some scat choruses reminiscent of Sarah Vaughan and finally to a concluding soul shot.. She sang with abandon, yet with control which most singers never learn.” -Bob Protzman, St Paul Pioneer Press
