LONG TALL DEB & COLIN JOHN
Creating a genre-bending and refreshingly original sound
Like many blues and soul vocalists of note, Deb Landolt cultivated her soul/gospel
honey-dipped voice in church as a child.
Her VizzTone debut “Raise Your Hands” gained heavy rotation on Sirius/XM’s
“Bluesville” and garnered attention both for her vocal dynamics and
songwriting: owing a lot to her Texas/Mexico border roots.
Transpacific Bluesman Colin John received his early touring miles with Teeny Hodges, Little Mike and
The Tornadoes, Henry Grey, Pinetop Perkins, Michael Hill, Hubert Sumlin,
Phil Guy, Big Jack Johnson, and Gary Brooker of Procol Harum.
Their one-of-a-kind sound incorporates a solid bedrock of blues and soul sensibilities
cross-pollinated with their respective deep roots in Texas and Hawai’i and topped
with world roots influences gleaned from their travels throughout the world.
Together, Long Tall Deb & Colin John have performed across Asia, Europe, North America
and the Pacific and continue to license their songs in TV and film.
They continue their refreshingly original new sound with their latest release on VizzTone, Dragonfly.
Deb & Colin can bring their duo act to your stage and also perform with a full backing band.

ELMORE MAGAZINE - Jim Hynes
Credit Long Tall Deb and Colin John for forging their own unique sound.
It’s refreshing and captivating.
THE ROCK DOCTOR - Jim Kereiff
...An intoxicating mix of styles that would make Page and Plant jealous
...dark mysterious and adventurous.
POPA CHUBBY - Blues Artist
… I listened to one of the best records I’ve heard this year; Dragonfly. Colin’s guitar playing is special
(He) incorporates slide, slack-key, surf, psycho and blues without a hitch.
A unique player in a world of sheep.…and Deb can sing!
OTTAWA CITIZEN - Lynn Saxberg
Long Tall Deb made the stage her own with a devil-may-care stage presence and
a voice that sounded like Koko Taylor.
