Debbie Harry

Debbie Harry’s pioneering work with Blondie established her as one of popular music’s most enduring icons. Yet she’s always staunchly resisted the option of coasting on her pop-diva status, instead following an idiosyncratic career path that’s demonstrated her restless creative spirit, wide-ranging interests and diverse performing skills. In addition to her output as vocalist and songwriter on Blondie’s ten studio albums (the most recent being this year’s "Ghosts of Download," preceded by 2011′s "Panic of Girls") and five solo releases (most recently 2007′s "Necessary Evil"), Harry has been featured as a guest vocalist on a dizzying array of recording projects, while winning acclaim for her acting in numerous feature films and television shows. Blondie’s self-titled debut album appeared in 1976. Beginning with their third LP, 1978′s "Parallel Lines," the sextet reaped massive worldwide success. The combination of the band’s tough, infectious songcraft and Harry’s cool charisma made Blondie one of the era’s seminal recording acts, selling an eventual 40 million albums around the world, and storming the charts with their follow-up albums "Eat to the Beat" and "Autoamerican," and such indelible hit tunes as “One Way Or Another,” “Dreaming”, “Call Me,” “Atomic,” the boundary-breaking rock/dance smash “Heart of Glass” and the revolutionary new-wave/rap hybrid “Rapture,” all of which Harry wrote or co-wrote. Despite her busy musical life, Harry found time to develop a prolific acting career, building an impressive resume that includes performances in more than 30 films, including David Cronenberg’s "Videodrome," John Waters’ "Hairspray," "Forever Lulu," "Roadie," "Union City," "Six Ways to Sunday," "Copland," "Heavy," "My Life Without Me," "Intimate Stranger," "Spun" and "Full Grown Men." Her television work includes roles on "Tales from the Darkside," "Will and Grace," "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," "Absolutely Fabulous," "The Adventures of Pete and Pete" and "Wiseguy."
