Welcome

Debra is a Newcastle based singer,  who is well established in the northeast of England as an interpreter of  well known jazz standards, as well as for her unique selection of rarely sung material, inspired by jazz artists such as Jon Hendricks, Betty Carter, Kurt Elling, Eddie Jefferson, & many more.


Debra  and guitar maestro Steve Glendinning have played together in various configurations over the years, but the latest project  Milne Glendinning Band - MGB is something special, focusing on original songs written by the duo, as well as by Debra in collaboration with other north east jazz musicians.


Debra also performs with the Safe Sextet, featuring a great range of swing & blues inspired by bop and post bop era  musicians such as Horace Silver, Miles Davis & Georgie Fame.


Debra's bands from recent years were the Debra Milne Ensemble, Milne & Johnston Band and Jazz Latin Groove,  which performed at venues across the north of England, including Hoochie Coochie, the Jazz Cafe & The Globe in Newcastle, Empty Shop & The Brass Festival in Durham, & Jazz Clubs in Darlington, Hexham & Carlisle.
