You made it!

 Welcome to the Debbie Davis homepage. If you're looking for information, news and music from New Orleans songbird and premier female ukulelist, you've come to the right place! If, however, you're looking for a blues guitar player born in 1952 (whose name is Debbie DaviEs, by the way), Al Jarreau's back-up singer, a world reknowned equine trainer, Avon's top selling associate in the UK or the Playboy Playmate for June 1972, Google did you wrong. Sorry for the inconvenience.

2 CD's in 2014!

2014 was a busy one for Debbie's recording projects. In March, Linger til Dawn broke the ice and marked the first recording by Debbie Davis and the Mesmerizers, earning popular and critical success. (read some reviews here!)
The holidays were made extra jolly by the release of Oh Crap, It's Christmas!, which became New Orleans' run-away Christmas success story. Read what in Offbeat Magazine had to say and buy both cds in the store.
