Deborah Lombardi can often be described as a country music version of Liz Phair or Throwing Muses. Though not letting one genre define her, this Long Island based singer-songwriter has a knack for mixing elements of rock, country and pop, with catchy melodies and thought-provoking lyrics. Supported by her passionate voice and multi-instrumental abilities on guitar and piano, she can hold her own whether she’s performing solo-acoustic or backed up by her band.
Deborah’s songs have been consistently placed in soundtracks ranging from film (Fifth Form) to national TV (Animal Planet’s Horse Power: Road To The Maclay), as well as the sci-fi web-series The Extent. Sweet Leaf Tea has also used her songs on a music-oriented website promoting their nationally distributed brand. Deborah’s songwriting has won accolades in competitions such as VH1’s Song of the Year Contest (three Runner Up awards) and the Billboard Songwriting Contest (four Honorable Mentions).
Steadily making her mark on the Long Island and New York music scenes, she’s graced the cover of Good Times Magazine as well as Aural Fix Communiqué (where she was voted “Queen of the Long Island Music Scene”). Deborah has also made several TV and radio appearances and has performed throughout the East Coast.
Classically trained at the renowned University of Miami School of Music, her performing experience has ranged from musical theatre to fronting rock bands. Deborah’s life experiences have taken her on a transient journey, having lived in New York, Miami and Washington, DC, all the while sculpting her storytelling and inspirations to write.
