IPO Liverpool 2018 : Deborah Henriksson
Deborah Henriksson grew up in Morristown, New Jersey listening to Pete Seeger, Buffy St. Marie, Leontyne Price, and Giuseppe Verdi. She moved to Sweden in 1978 and that is her home base now. She trained her folk voice to classical music vocal ideals, before returning to a back to basics untrained Vocals in 2009.
She has released five albums, her most recent two with original songs in partnership with Producer, Mats Nyman. Deborah's latest album, Near And Far was released in August 2017 and made it to the first round of the American Grammy's in the category Best Pop Vocal Album.
If you like Contemporary Folk with a Pop / Celtic / Americana edge then this will be right up your street. Later in May a hour long show in the Netherlands will feature Near and Far, and Henriksson will talk about the making of the album and the writing of the songs. Live performances follow in Sweden and new single releases are planned.
It is hoped that her IPO appearance will ensure that more people will support Deborah's excellent music adventure. You can listen to the Near And Far album here. You can find out more about Deborah here and support her here.
She plays The Cavern Club tonight and The Cavern Pub on Thursday 17 May.
