     "Pearl offered an impressive musical introduction to the new body of Carter songs... scatting and hard swinging, she delivered each song with convincing believeability - as a jazz vocalist and as a story teller."
                               - Don Heckman

I'm a professional singer and writer.  A former jingle singer, recording artist on London Records (with my sister Leslie - writer of the Folger's "Best Part of Waking Up" jingle), writer and performer of my critically-acclaimed one woman show "Chick Singers," backup singer for artists Linda Ronstadt, E Yazawa, Oasis, Neil Young and many more... 

I'm also a nine year veteran of tv comedy writing - most noteably "Designing
Women".
  My screenplays and stageplays - to quote the LA Times - "combine humor with heartache."   I hear the music of a character's "voice"...  love the art and craft of telling a larger truth through a personal prism. 

My latest passion is lyric writing - telling a story in one page instead of a hundred - in three minutes instead of three acts.  I've been given the privilege of writing words to the genius music of jazz legend Benny Carter (1907-2003), a great man I knew and loved.  Thanks to his wife, Hilma, my friend and mentor, I've recorded his classic melodies as songs that, hopefully, will continue his legacy for generations to come. 

I hope you enjoy "Souvenir Of you"!

           REVIEWS OF PAST SHOWS  -

"Deborah Pearl's one woman show is a comedic tour de force.  For 90 nonstop minutes, and with astute insight, she manages to capture the public personas and personal lives of eight singers... with a vocal range that covers everything from Broadway to Blues, from Opera to jazz."  
                       - The Hollywood Reporter
                         
"Deborah Pearl is funny, poignant and always in great voice in her one-woman show at the Cinegrill.  Combining humor with heartache, she transitions easily from character to character...  Pearl saves the best for last, performing songs as herself, a "chick singer" with a great voice and sense of humor." 
                                   - LA Times
