Deborah Mannas is a published poet and singer/songwriter who has produced a solo album of songs she has written and performed in collaboration with contemporary neo-soul band Hong Kong band Soul Sessions. Her first album, the jazz-styled Deborah – Inspired!, was launched in May 2018 to a crowd of enthusiastic fans. Since then she has been featured on RTHK Radio shows, and was the “persona” in the August/September 2018 issue of the Life On Lantau magazine. In December 2018, The Asia Society Hong Kong held its first-ever musical event, with Deborah sharing her inspirations and performing her original music.
Deborah plays all over Hong Kong with her jazz band Syzygy, and also with Soul Sessions and The BandExpress, and more recently has performed and recorded original material with guitar maestro Robin Banerjee, Amy Winehouse’s ex-guitarist. Her second album, Magician, is due to be released in summer this year.
Soul Sessions is expertly led by AgnesQ, and is well known for its versatility and crossover style of soul, funk and jazz. Deborah and Soul Sessions are back with their unique brand of high-energy music, combining all their talents for what is sure to be an entertaining and enjoyable night!
