Deborah Conway is a singer/songwriter who shot to fame as the lead singer of Do Re Mi.
She is a significant and eloquent contributor to Australian music, singing songs that chronicle the essential elements of life, love, loss, memory, the mundane and the spiritual for the past 30 years. As lead singer for Do Re Mi her voice was first heard by many on the single ‘Man Overboard’.
She’s gone on to sing on The Iron Man by Pete Townsend, alongside Nina Simone and John Lee Hooker, and acting and singing in Peter Greenaway’s film Prospero’s Books.
