DEBLOIS MILLEDGE BAND (dey-bloys mill-edge ba-nd), led by Miami native singer/songwriter DeBlois Milledge, combines many forms of American roots music. The band began in New York City when DeBlois and drummer/producer Danny Campbell were billed as "BEAUTY and the BEAT". The full band debuted later at the "Village Underground" when Danny called upon longtime music partners bassist/co-producer James East and renowned electric guitarist and slide player Billy Thompson. Danny, James and Billy bring their experience working with artists such as Sergio Mendez, Eric Clapton, Daniel Lanois, Randy Newman, Lionel Richie, Art Neville and Keb Mo to DeBlois' soul folk tunes. These three have played together in all kinds of music projects for years and are like a band of brothers. DEBLOIS MILLEDGE BAND has been touring the country since those first shows, from stops at The Hog’s Breath Saloon in Key West to the House of Blues in Los Angeles; they have played the Maui Film Festival, the Carnival on the Mile in Miami, the Monterey Music Summit, and The Burbank International Film Festival. Currently DeBlois' compositions are featured in the PBS documentary Escape to Dreamland. In 2001 DeBlois moved to Costa Rica where she started a surf school, picked up Spanish, and developed her song-writing and performance skills. In the States she was a Naturalist at the Biscayne Nature Center and a mentor to inner city kids, but perhaps the most influential experience outside the lines of music was when, last November, DeBlois fought for her life against double pneumonia, a complication brought on by the H1N1 flu. Her near death experience has infused her latest CD, GEMS, with an insightful look at the world around her and her eagerness to appreciate it every day.
