Deborah Coleman is a double rarity in the male-dominated world of contemporary blues: she's a female lead singer who's not imitating the bellowing "blues mama" persona so familiar to the genre, and she's one hell of a lead guitar player. Featuring Luther Allison's backing band, Where Blue Begins is a smooth blend of Coleman's furious fretwork and pussycat purr of a voice. Coleman's slide shreds up "Goodbye Misery," while her buoyant licks carry the Texas blues of "Travelin' South. Even when her lyrics come close to cliché, like.
Coleman was born in Portsmouth, Virginia and raised in a music-loving military family that lived in San Diego, San Francisco, Bremerton, Washington, and the Chicago area. With her father playing piano, two brothers on guitar, and a sister who plays guitar and keyboards, Deborah felt natural with an instrument in her hands, picking up guitar at age 8. She has played at the top music venues such as North Atlantic Blues Festival (2007), Waterfront Blues Festival (2002), the Monterey Jazz Festival (2001), Ann. Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival (2000), Sarasota Blues Festival (1999), the San Francisco.
Featuring Luther Allison's backing band, Where Blue Begins is a smooth blend of Coleman's furious fretwork and pussycat purr of a voice. Even when her lyrics come close to cliché, like on "Beside Myself" and "Hain't It Funny," she saves the songs with some wicked playing and her Joan Armatrading vocal stylings

This is guitarist Deborah Coleman’s second album for Blind Pig Records. Coleman has been making quite a name for herself, having been nominated for several prestigious blues awards and putting on shows that are fast becoming sold-out affairs. But then, that comes as no surprise to those who have heard her; Coleman's exquisite guitar work is seamless. Deborah Coleman seems to have her own solution to that problem: throw tradition out the window. On WHERE BLUE BEGINS the formidable guitarist/vocalist takes the considerable lessons she's learned from the blues and applies them to a fresh-sounding musical stew that includes rock, funk, blues, R&B and more. A staunch modernist, her slide work is more Duane Allman than Elmore James, and her choice of material is eclectic to say the least, ranging from Jane Siberry ("Hain't It Funny") to Louis Jordan ("They Raided the Joint").
