Debbie Harry biography


Birth name Deborah Ann Harry
Born July 1, 1945 (1945-07-01) (age 65)
Miami, Florida, U.S.
Genres New Wave, pop, rock, punk rock, Power Pop, Disco

Deborah Ann “Debbie” Harry (born July 1, 1945) is an American singer-songwriter and actress, best known for being the lead singer of the punk rock and new wave band Blondie. She has also had success as a solo artist, and in the mid-1990s she performed and recorded as part of The Jazz Passengers. Her acting career spans over thirty film roles and numerous television appearances.

Harry is the daughter of Catherine and Richard Harry, gift shop proprietors in Hawthorne, New Jersey, who adopted her at the age of three-months-old, in Miami, Florida.  She attended Hawthorne High School, where she graduated in 1963. She graduated from Centenary College in Hackettstown, New Jersey, with an Associate of Arts degree in 1965. Before starting her singing career she moved to New York City in the late 1960s and worked as a secretary at BBC Radio’s office there for one year. Later, she was a waitress at Max’s Kansas City, and worked in a Dunkin’ Donuts shop, after which she was a dancer in Union City, New Jersey, and a Playboy Bunny.

She began her musical career in the late ’60s with a folk rock group, The Wind in the Willows. Harry then joined a girl-group trio, The Stilettos, in the early 1970s.[citation needed] The Stilettos’ backup band included her eventual boyfriend and Blondie guitarist, Chris Stein.[citation needed] Harry and Stein formed the band Blondie in the mid-1970s, naming it for the term of address men often yelled at Harry from passing cars.[citation needed] Blondie quickly became regulars at Max’s Kansas City and CBGB in New York City. After a debut album in 1976, commercial success followed in the late 1970s to the early 1980s, first in Australia and Europe, then in the United States.

While leading Blondie, Harry and Stein became life as well as musical partners, although they never married; Harry has no children.[6] In the mid-1980s, she took a few years off to nurse Stein back to health after he suffered a life-threatening disease. Stein and Harry broke up in the 1990s, but they have continued to work together.[citation needed] In 1999, she was called the 12th greatest woman of rock and roll by VH1′s 100 Greatest Women of Rock & Roll and in 2002, she was called the 18th sexiest artist of all time by VH1′s 100 Sexiest Artists [8] Harry resides in Red Bank, New Jersey, and in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City.

Born: 1 July 1945
Birthplace: Miami, Florida
Best known as: Lead singer for the group Blondie
Deborah (Debbie) Harry is the lead singer for Blondie, the New York “new wave” band famous for the hit songs “Heart of Glass” and “Call Me.”

The group was formed in 1974 by Harry and her then-boyfriend, guitarist Chris Stein (b. 1950), and first included Fred Smith on bass and Billy O’Connor on drums. Prior to that Harry had recorded with a folk rock group, Wind in the Willows (1968), and performed with an all-female rock group (The Stilettoes), but she made her living doing a series of jobs, working as a waitress, secretary, bartender and, famously, Playboy Bunny (a hostess at one of Hugh Hefner’s clubs). Blondie’s first albums were popular in Australia and the U.K., but it was 1978′s Parallel Lines that made them stars in the United States.

They had hit songs like “Hanging on the Telephone” and “Heart of Glass,” and their Pop-Art sensibilities and Harry’s cool-blonde sex appeal made were a good fit in the early days of music videos. Harry and Blondie had more hits in the early 1980s, including “The Tide is High” and “Call Me” (the theme from the 1980 Richard Gere movie American Gigolo). She released a solo album, Koo Koo, in 1981 and boosted her celebrity with modelling, endorsements and appearances in movies and on TV, and by 1983 Blondie had dissolved.

During the ’80s she released Rockbird (1986) and Def, Dumb and Blonde (1989) and had hits with “In Love With Love” and “I Want That Man.” She has also made many appearances in films and TV shows, notably in the movies Videodrome (1983), Hairspray (1988, directed by John Waters) and Cop Land (1997, starring Sylvester Stallone). Blondie reunites and performs on occasion, and Harry has maintained her popularity on the dance floor with re-issues and remixes of her songs. She still records and performs in a variety of media and is a fixture of New York’s celebrity art world.

Extra credit: Blondie was inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame in 2006. Harry was joined by Chris Stein, keyboardist Jimmy Destri and drummer Clem Burke at the induction ceremony, which was interrupted by a spat with former members Frank Infante and Nigel Harrison.
