Debora Galan and Silk – Jazz, Latin and R&B
Debora’s passion for music and her ability to sing was realized at a young age. Debora learned her first Mexican “Rancheras” singing to herself in front of the mirror as she waited for her parents to come home from work. In High School is when Debora had the chance to really show her ability when her 9th grade music teacher gave her a solo singing role in her first stage performance. It was then…a star was born! Her deep love for music has been since evident in every aspect of her life.
A native of Spain, Debora inherited her love of music and singing from her grandfather and mother who both sang and performed flamenco. At age 17, Debora’s professional performing career actually started in Latin Jazz & Salsa clubs with top ranking bands and also opening for major Latin performances in Washington, D.C. Debora’s move to San Diego began her career singing gospel and contemporary Christian music. Another true-to-her-heart tribute to who she is and the love her spirit radiates.
Her break into the local music scene was as a lead singer with OSM, a HOT variety band based in Carlsbad, CA. As Debora’s popularity grew, she performed with the very talented Stellar Award winning artist/producer, Kenny Smith out of Los Angeles, touring throughout CA with Kenny was an experience that only drew her passion deeper for music.
Debora has taken part in multiple recording projects in a variety of genres including jazz, rap, gospel, and R&B records, and was featured on the The Hungering’s CD. She has also performed for large audiences at special events, such as the Hispanic-American festival in Adams Morgan (Washington DC), DC/LA 94 Youth for Christ Super Concert, Love Will Wait Conference w/ Miles McPherson, as well as other multiple benefit concerts. Most recently she headlined at 2013 Art Affaire in the City of Rancho Mirage, and was one of the artists at PGA West’s Humana Challenge.
Debora currently performs with her band Silk, in the San Diego area and continues to stir the hearts of her audience’s to feel the love vibrated through her music. Stay tuned for more of her journey through music as we eagerly watch her rise to the next level of expression!
