Thanks for taking the time to speak with us Deborah! First things first, how are you? What have you been up to?
I am very well thanks. Like everybody else though, I’m at home during the quarantine.
We’re glad to hear you’re keeping safe and well. Firstly, for those who aren’t familiar with your music, can you tell us a little bit about what inspired you to begin your career as an artist?
I did many jobs before I started my career in music. From waitressing, bartending and even sales – I went through all the roles that exist in a restaurant or a club, always trying to grow.
For many years I was a dancer, both in Italy and abroad in Ibiza, until I reached a point where I knew I wanted to do something else. I wanted to use my experience of working in clubs and knowledge of electronic music to play it for myself. This was 13 years ago.
