She's one of those magnetic performers who you're drawn to when you see her. Deborah Allen just makes that look easy.Those who know her and her career know that kind of energy comes from years of world-class experience and two Grammy nominations.

Deborah admits, "I was born singing. I guess it would be hard to pinpoint exactly when my career in music became a full-on pursuit, but I'd say by the time I was eighteen I was sure that music was what I wanted, and I just forged ahead. There was no Plan B in sight."

Getting to Nashville from Memphis, Deborah's hometown, is an easy drive down I-40 heading east.That easy drive takes on new dimensions when said driver is a musician intent on making a career.Deborah reveled in this challenge, forging ahead with her career plans. Even though she's known for her signature smash, "Baby I Lied,î her real impact on music is seen through her influence on music in general.Songs like "I've Been Wrong Before","I Hurt For You", "Rock Me", "If You're Not Gonna Love Me", "Wrong Side Of Love", and "Break These Chains" are just a few of the singles that made their way up the Country, Pop or AC charts during her career and are still heard frequently today.

It's easy to see how Deborah won her Grammy as a performer. Anyone who's seen her onstage can't argue she brings passion to her music. What occasionally gets over looked is her Grammy award winning ability as a songwriter. With over 1,600 compositions published, Deborah's songs have been recorded by a never-ending list of artists which include LeAnn Rimes, Brooks & Dunn, Patty Loveless, Conway Twitty, Tanya Tucker, Janie Fricke, John Conlee, Isaac Hayes, Diana Ross, Sheena Easton, Fleetwood Mac and more.Her songs have also been featured on several major motion picture soundtracks, such as Coyote Ugly, River Rat, Clinton and Nadine, as well as in River Phoenix's final film, The Thing Called Love. She still believes songwriting remains one of the most consistent aspects of her career and one that she insists is just as satisfying as getting up in front of an audience. She adds, "Waking up in the morning with a blank piece of paper and by sundown having a song written on it is an amazing feeling. For me, that's definitely one of the most rewarding parts of my career."

Deborah's latest release, "Hear Me Now", shows just how great a well-rounded entertainer, producer & songwriter she is. She wrote or co-wrote every song on the project, including the album's first single, "Anything Other Than Love". Written with award-winning BMI songwriter of the year, Gary Burr, the track came together as a traditional, yet funky country shuffle, with Deborah's trademark vocals as fantastic as ever.You do get the impression listening to the songs on "Hear Me Now', Deborah manages to couple the influence and respect for her Memphis roots with the traditional Nashville country sound and make it work perfect!Songs like, "Amazing Graceland", "Anything Other Than Love", "Tellin' You From The Heart" and, "It Better Be Big", let the listener hear just how well Deborah makes her music work and work well!
