has been entertaining diverse audiences professionally for over forty years. Trained
in both music and theater, Deb's performance background includes everything from glee clubs, choruses, and classical
choral unioins, to folk groups, to solo performances.
She appeared as a member of the Wayne State
University Symphonic Choir with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra at Ford Auditorium in Detroit; Carnegie Hall in NY, and The
Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington, DC. She was the opening act for
Holly Near and Adrienne Torf at a Kent State concert.
She toured throughout the midwest and eastern
U.S. in the 1970's and 80's promoting her independent release, "D.J. Adler Here & Now," a collection of 12 original songs
featuring the artist on vocals, percussion, and 6- and 12-string acoustic guitar. It was distributed through Ladyslipper
Mountain Moving Coffeehouse has described
her as a "sometimes political, sometimes humorous musician who is always entertaining."
Deb brings with her a sense of herstory in
the development of women's music. She was a featured performer at Hartford
Connecticut's first Gay and Lesbian Pride Day March and Celebration held in 1982.
Magazine wrote: "Deb Adler is a talented musician. She has a strong, clear voice
which can, with equal ease, slide through a soft ballad or belt out with the best of them."
The Cleveland Performer called her "versatile and engaging... an
inspiration." And the Women Library
Workers Journal, Berkeley CA, praised her "soul stirring songs. With her strong clear voice she sings folk songs, ballads
and blues, even a capella."
Deb produced Holly Near and Cris Williamson
in concert in Columbus this past March and is looking forward to producing future concerts in addition to currently booking
for her own fall and winter performances through Silverstream Music.
She is also in the beginning stages of releasing
a new CD. (See "Help With Deb's CD Release" ).
