Recording artists Donna Deussen (vocals) and Paul Weitz (guitar) have been performing together for the past few years throughout the Southern California area, during which time they have developed unique arrangements of jazz and pop tunes, for both duo and full band settings. The result of their energies is their exciting new CD, “On The Street Where You Live.”

Donna Deussen’s singing has been praised by John Gilbert of EJazzNews: “her phrasing is impeccable, her tone is clear, and is a joy to the ear of the discerning listener.” A magna cum laude graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, Donna moved to the west coast after college, and has performed in venues all over California and Arizona.
