Donna Deussen

Jazz Vocalist Donna Deussen's second CD, “On The Street Where You Live” has just been released, and is a joint venture with guitarist Paul Weitz, with whom she has been performing for the last two years. Together they have developed exciting and unique arrangements of jazz and pop tunes for both duo and full band settings.

Donna Deussen's singing has been praised by John Gilbert of EJazzNews: “her phrasing is impeccable, her tone is clear, and is a joy to the ear of the discerning listener.” A magna cum laude graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, she moved to the west coast after college, and began performing in venues all over both California and Arizona. Donna also works as a session singer and vocal coach. Her acclaimed debut CD, “High Wire” featured Chick Corea's saxophonist Eric Marienthal.
