About Deborah Allen:
Deborah Allen is one of those rare artists who forged their own path to success and ended up building a world-class career in the process. An extraordinarily talented singer, songwriter, producer and performer, Deborah’s unique abilities as an artist may be matched only by her enthusiasm and creativity as an individual. It is that formidable combination of spirit and talent that keeps the Grammy-nominated entertainer in demand.
Deborah has penned more than 1,600 compositions for hundreds of artists, including smash hits by LeAnn Rimes, Brooks & Dunn, Patty Loveless, Conway Twitty, Tanya Tucker, Janie Fricke, John Conlee, Isaac Hayes, Diana Ross, Sheena Easton, Fleetwood Mac and many more. She found success of her own, hitting the charts with unique songs like “I’ve Been Wrong Before,” “I Hurt For You,” “Rock Me,” “If You’re Not Gonna Love Me,” “Wrong Side Of Love,” “Break These Chains” and her signature song, “Baby I Lied.”
In some ways, “Baby I Lied” confirmed the idea that an artist could have success in different formats with the same song, a precedent that would prove to be years ahead of the crossover trends of today. Baby I Lied not only appealed to Country and Pop radio listeners, earning multiple Million Air-Play Awards in the process, but it also resulted in a pair of Grammy nominations for the Delta songstress, one as a vocalist and one as a songwriter.
In addition to her success as a singer-songwriter, Deborah has also written the classic children’s book, ‘The Loneliest Christmas Tree‘ and recently played a role in the movie ‘The Least Of These – A Christmas Story‘ starring Michael Nicolosi, Tayla Lynn and Duane Allen of The Oak Ridge Boys, which is currently available on Amazon Prime Video. Deborah not only acted in the film, she performed five songs included on the soundtrack, three of which she wrote.
Throughout her phenomenal journey of hits and accomplishments in every facet of her career, Deborah Allen remains true to her vision. From her discovery by Roy Orbison, to her friendship with Shel Silverstein, her work with Prince, Deborah creates art entirely on her own terms. With a distinguished career built on success after success as a performer, songwriter and producer, the dynamic Delta singer from Memphis, Tennessee, has no plans of slowing down anytime soon. That’s simply not Deborah Allen’s style.
