Ledisi, Eric Roberson, Mint Condition and many others have shared the stage with her. Lewis Taylor did a duet with her. And she gave me as close to as lap-dance as a front row journalist is gonna get the first time I saw her live 😉 Two albums in, Deborah Bond has made a rep for herself all over. Like the yellows and golds she’s been addicted to since grade school, her singing voice is full of light and energy. As a subject she goes from around the way girl to focused artist to full-plume diva in just a few frames. Deborah makes work fun. Shouts to makeup artist Aisha Massac for accentuating what’s already in bloom 😉
