Not a fan of the accordion or into surf rock? Perhaps you’re into the classics. Perhaps you’re into melodic, hard-hitting, emotive rock.
Meet Deborah Harry. Best known as the brains and beauty behind Blondie, this rock group is currently comprised of Chris Stein, Clem Burke, Leigh Foxx, Matt Katz-Bohen and Tommy Kessler. The band was founded in 1974 with a temporary hiatus between 1982 and 1997. In their expansive career, the group has gone on to sell over 40 million records, become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee (2006) and even win a Juno Award.
July is International Blondie and Deborah Harry Month – a chance for us to celebrate the music of this iconic group and to thank Deborah Harry for her impacting contribution to music and to opening the door for women in music everywhere.
