Deborah's musical influence began early in life, listening to the likes of Stan Getz, Larry Novak, Oscar Peterson and Bill Evans with her father, Chicago based jazz pianist and upright bass player, Bill Connors. Her mother Diane would break out her acoustic guitar and encourage her to sing. Those family jam sessions would send her down a lifelong path of writing, producing, performing and more. Deborah, a veteran of the Chicago music scene, writing and producing music since she was a teen, worked at the legendary Chicago Trax Recording Studios for several years with talents such as R Kelly, Ministry's, Al Jorgenson, George Harrison, Liz Phair, Trent Reznor, as well as some of the great Chicago House artists such as Farley Jackmaster Funk and Joe Smooth
Reminisce warms the soul and impales the senses with shots of serenity. Its standard smooth soul fused with contemporary ambient escapes that arouse dreamy sensations. The music of De'Nate melts away stress while keeping the listener on a heavenly plane. In this way, it is an album that is made for everyone.
With Deborah Connor's uniquely intricate vocal stylings, the incredibly haunting rhythms of keyboardist Nate Harasim and the sophisticated chops of the newest member, saxophonist Darren Rahn, De'Nate' is a new sound for a whole new generation of contemporary jazz, pop and urban music.
