In this hour special David Randall chatted to Deborah Bonham about her music and influences. (First broadcast on Get Ready to ROCK! Radio, 5 April 2015).
Get Ready to ROCK! Radio Featured Artist Deborah Bonham plays London’s 100 Club (Oxford Street 7:30pm) on Friday 20 January. Support is Jo Burt.
Deborah is a regular performer at major festivals and in 2015 appeared at Giants Of Rock.
2017 will see the release of enhanced versions of her albums via Cadiz Music including ‘The Old Hyde’ (featuring Jason Bonham & Mick Fleetwood), ‘Duchess’ (featuring Paul Rodgers & Jerry Shirley and ‘Spirit’, featuring Robert Plant.
Deborah will be performing songs from these albums plus several originally recorded in 1985 for her debut album ‘For You And The Moon’. A new album ‘Looking Back At The Moon’, a collection of the 1985-1991 sessions including the best of ‘For You And The Moon’ and some unreleased tracks is now available.
In recent years she has been a regular collaborator with Paul Rodgers – her performance at The Royal Albert Hall as his guest received a standing ovation at the sell-out concert.
More recently, Robert Plant stepped on stage unannounced to a delirious crowd at Deborah Bonham’s show to perform Led Zeppelin’s ‘When The Levee Breaks’ with her band and then Johnny Kidd & The Pirates’ classic, ‘Shakin’ All Over’. At the London Palladium in June 2016 she opened for Foreigner later joining them on stage for their encore.
