Biography

Scottish actress and singer Debbie Boyd began singing professionally in 1993 performing original material with a jazz/funk/soul band called "D&M Control" in her hometown of Aberdeen in Scotland before forming a rock group "Amoeba Red" again, playing original material, with whom she sang for 4 years. She also played many leading roles in local musical theatre productions and sang with various function bands before deciding to move to London to attend drama school.

In 1999, Debbie graduated from Guildford School of Acting gaining a distinction and winning the musical theatre prize.  She also played leading roles in graduation musical productions, Lola in "Damn Yankees" at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre (photo left) and Ilona Ritter in "She Loves Me" at the Electric Theatre.

Upon graduation she was immediately signed up by Jae Moss Enterprises and enjoyed a few years of diverse TV, film and theatre projects including the UK & Jersey tour of "What A Feeling!", the 80s Rock and Pop show where she starred alongside Limahl (Kajagoogoo) (photo right) and Gwen Dickey (Rose Royce), playing the role originally played by 'Sonia'.

Debbie proceeded to spread her wings into the field of theatre production when she co-produced "Music From The Last Century", a whirlwind tour of musical styles from 40s swing to 80s pop, starring Bonnie Langford and Limahl (Kajagoogoo) in which Debbie also featured as a vocalist accompanied by a 16 piece rock and pop orchestra (photo left).

 

Few performers escape Christmas pantomime, and Debbie played many principal boys including ‘Dandini’ and ‘Dick Whittington’ before ‘retiring’ from panto and proceeding to spend Christmas 2002 with Liberty Mounten, one of the world’s premier Elvis tributes, in his UK and European Christmas Concerts tour.

Debbie also played Shania Twain (photo left) and LeAnn Rimes (photo right) in the 2003/2004 UK & Ireland theatre tours of "Legends of Country".

 

Whilst enjoying the theatre productions, Debbie missed the creative freedom of singing her own choice of songs, in her own way, so she jumped at the opportunity to become the lead vocalist with "Rhythm Rising" a latino, soul and funk band, resident at the Dover St Wine Bar.

In addition to fronting the band vocally, Debbie was also trained to play some percussion instruments, a skill which she has continued to develop ever since.

In 2003, Debbie was invited to become a partner and lead vocalist in a busy live function band called Sahara and in 2007, Debbie launched The Debbie Boyd Band, which is fast becoming one of the most sought after bands in the UK for private and corporate functions.
