Debora Galán

Debora’s earliest recollections of singing are performances at family gatherings, where, from an early age, she and her cousins would dance and sing. A native of Spain, Debora inherited her love of music and singing from her grandfather and mother who sang flamenco. After moving to Washington, DC at the age of 8, her exposure to other music widened and she was inspired by legends such as Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston, and other contemporary artists. Debora listened intently and taught herself how to sing. When she was in 9th grade, Debora was given her first opportunity to sing publicly with a solo at a school function, beginning her lifelong dream of a career in music.

Debora began singing professionally at age 17, performing in Latin Jazz & Salsa clubs, with various leading bands and opening for major Latin acts in Washington, D.C. When she moved to the San Diego area, she began to sing gospel and contemporary Christian music. At the same time she began to move into the local music scene and became one of the lead singers of a cover band OSM, a well-known variety band out of Carlsbad, CA. She later joined Stellar Award-winner and Dove Award Nominee Kenny Smith (artist/producer) in Los Angeles. In 2008, she founded the group Debora Galán & Silk and currently performs throughout Southern California. Additionally, Debora has worked with nationally recognized artists such as Greg Manning, Brad Rambur, Darryl Williams & Friends, and Kamau Kenyatta just to name a few. She has also taken part in multiple recording projects. Most recently she headlined at several festivals in southern California and opened for award-winning composer/producer Steve Tyrell.

Smooth, heartfelt, soulful…Debora’s vocal style allows her to blend her cultural diversity and her passion for music into a musical journey of Jazz, Latin Jazz, R&B, and World music. Debora continues to expand as a musician, and is currently getting ready to release her original music CD, All About Love, produced by Grammy-Award winner Allan Phillips. This single is the first of piece of that work.
