Reviews: Debbi Clarke (Debbi Lindley) London-based piano accompanist.

…a huge shoutout must go to the talented ensemble who danced up a storm, and also the musical director Debbi Clarke who didn’t miss a single beat.

Muddy Stilettos

The numbers come up covered in blue grass-tinged glory as played by Debbi Clarke’s exquisite seven-piece band, visible throughout the show in a little marquee just behind the main stage.

Alun Hood, What’s on Stage

Musical director Debbi Clarke’s six-piece orchestra smooths its way through Berlin’s joyous score, accenting several of the numbers with an almost bluegrass sensibility.

Paul Vale, The Stage

Debbi Clarke’s seven-piece ensemble nail melody after melody with wonderful orchestrations that fizz with a freshness that delights.

Gary Naylor, The Arts Desk

Ellis Kerkhoven’s fast-paced direction keeps the humour flowing and transitions flawless, with the brilliant onstage music director Debbi Clarke, contributing to the atmosphere of each scene with a catchy musical score.

Christine Stanton, The Review Hub

This version sizzles with slick production values, a sharp live band led by musical director Debbi Clarke and a bravura performance from its star.

Paul Vale, The Stage

For me though, the star of the show has to be the fantastic pianist and Musical Director Debbi Clarke. It’s astonishing that she managed to play the accompaniment for all of the songs in this production completely solo and even added in musical interludes between scenes. I am in complete awe of her talent!

Hannah Baker, WODS

Debbi Clarke, the definitely talented musical director.

Debbi is clearly an accomplished musician and the singing she attained from her company did her credit.

Jon Fox, NODA

Amazing pianist and always there when needed to accompany! Pleasure to work with.

Lewis Ogles, Clarinettist & Pianist

Debbi Clarke is a wonderful musician with a wealth of accompanying experience. I would highly recommend Debbi to work with children and adults at any level of musical experience. Debbi is also a Musical Director and an excellent teacher of piano.

Paul Tame, Pianist & Piano Teacher

Debbi is an amazingly talented musician and an incredibly gifted pianist. She has been supportive and technically accomplished in all of our rehersals. I have used her as an accompanist for many rehearsals and concerts and will continue to use her talents for many years to come! 5 stars. If I could give more I would!

Annabel Clapham, Vocalist

Debbi has accompanied me throughout my time at university and has always delivered excellent accompaniment. She is also very knowledgeable and is happy to rehearse many times to ensure you are comfortable and have the best performance you can.

She is also one of the nicest people and will not let you down!

Lewis Hazzard, Trombonist
