British blues-rock singer-songwriter Deborah Bonham - sister of the late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham - makes her U.S. album debut with Duchess. The disc features thirteen soulful songs - including twelve originals - plus guest performances from former Free and Bad Company frontman Paul Rodgers and John's son Jason Bonham, a second generation skins-master who played with Zeppelin at their 2007 U.K. show honoring Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.

The album was co-produced by Deborah and Glen Skinner, and features her ace band, made up of former Humble Pie drummer Jerry Shirley, bassist Ian Rowley, keyboardist Gerard Louis and guitarist Peter Bullick. Paul Rodgers and Jason Bonham are heard on the stand-out track Hold On - other highlights include the bluesy Pretty Thing, Duchess & the Shufflemeister, the ballad Love You So, the folk-flavored Chains and the country-tinged Blue (the latter with veteran pedal steel ace BJ Cole). Also featured is The Old Hyde Revisited, a new, live-in-the-studio version of the title track from Bonham's '04 U.K. album. The song is a moving tribute to her father John Henry Bonham, Sr. and brothers John and Michael, who all passed away within years of each other.

Deborah Bonham first got the urge to perform when she was six years old and saw her brother in concert with Led Zeppelin. After his untimely death in 1980, she set out to cultivate her own branch of the Bonham family tree's musical heritage. Her U.K. debut For You And The Moon was critically praised, and a second album, The Old Hyde, followed. With Duchess, Bonham claims her standing as rock royalty, and comes into her own as an artist.
