ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Deborah Berg is a singer/songwriter who’s based in New York City but has an international history. Born in Seattle, raised in Nebraska, Deborah has hitchhiked across America and Canada -- twice – and lived in London, seven American cities, and active communes in Oregon and Colorado. She grew up singing in her father’s church choirs and majored in modern dance and religion, but was always moonlighting as lead singer or backing vocalist in local bands.

Yes, she has been on a few wild goose chases.

Her first musical memories were singing strange and wonderful harmonies with the Hoover her mum pushed across the carpet in their little home in Seattle, Washington. A preacher’s daughter, her family moved to the great plains of Nebraska when she was a girl, where she began ballet classes and honed her vocal skills in the church choir. With her first band, Eleazar, she began blending her religious background with the wild world of rock and roll.

As a dancer and vocalist, she moved to the west bank of Minneapolis to study dance at The Guild of Performing Arts and, among other things, become an official rebellious youth. She then moved to San Francisco to study Contact improvisation with Mangrove at Project Artaud, and soon met and sang with the illustrious and talented Shoshi, who showed her the ropes of singing jazz standards in small San Francisco clubs. She improvised original vocal arrangements and choreography in the women’s dance collective Mostly Women Moving.

It was in California that she caught the attention of British composer, Julian Marshall, who was on holiday with his wife and casually searching for a new vocalist-music partner. They met at a Mostly Women Moving dance performance, hit it off, then Deborah traveled to London where they began their writing career together. The two formed the 80’s group Eye to Eye and recorded two classic albums with Warner Brothers: “Eye to Eye” and ‘Shakespeare Stole My Baby,” both produced by Gary Katz (Steely Dan). A mere three years later they were sacked from their record company, but their musical partnership remained.

In 2006, Eye to Eye recorded and released an independent CD: “Clean Slate,” produced by Rhett Davies (Roxy Music). Now, Julian teaches and conducts workshops in England and Deborah sings and performs in New York City.

Since moving to New York City in 1983, Deborah has formed or joined musical ventures such as the Blister Sisters, Deborah Berg and the Furies, Deborah Berg McCarthy, Longhouse, and Black 47. She has published and written over 50 original and co-written songs.

In 1999, she recorded and produced her first solo album, "Places Where I Dream."

Deborah's fifth CD (and second solo CD), NO RUSH, was released on February 29, 2012. NO RUSH has 10 tracks that soothes the senses and inspire intimacy. NO RUSH features these fantastic musicians: John Putnam, Andrew Sherman, Frank Vilardi, Richard Hammond, Wes Corbett, Antoine Silverman, Payton McDonald, Chris Eminizer, Clark Gayton and Satoru Ohashi.

Her single, "Goin' Nowhere," is currently playing on over 87 terrestrial radio stations, and Deborah is a featured ARTIST TO WATCH on iHeartRadio NEW! Discover & Uncover (through Clear Channel).

Deborah is proud to be an official Martin Guitar and Sennheiser endorsed artist.

In 2009, Deborah co-wrote with Doug Katsaros the new theme song for "Great Museums," the only nationwide television series devoted to America's museums. Click here to see when the show airs on your local PBS station, or to request that it be added to your local lineup!

She currently performs with Dusty, a Bluegrass-tinged gal trio with five-piece band, in and around New York City. (Visit Dusty on Facebook and MySpace). Dusty is Deborah Berg, Sherryl Marshall, and Lesley Miller.

Deborah has collaborated recently with Julian Marshall on “Twelve Songs,” a weekend songwriting workshop offered in the UK through the London Song Company and has also led songwriting workshops in New York City through a grant from ASCAP for the non-profit organization, Feel the Music.

Deborah lives in New York City with her husband, Mike McCarthy. They have two children, Dan and Keenan. She also has four stepchildren and nine grandchildren.
