The name Debbie Harry evokes many images: seminal rock 'n' roll figure, complex songstress, incandescent front woman, actor and fashion icon. Now, after decades as a vibrant global force and a shaper of pop culture, Debbie Harry recounts her journey from an irreverent Lower East Side punk goddess to a bona fide international ambassador of New York cool in "FACE IT."



Best known as the face of Blondie, undeniably one of the most trailblazing and influential bands of our time, Debbie Harry and co-founder Chris Stein brought the worlds of rock, punk, disco and ska together with "Heart of Glass" and "Call Me" and broke ground by combining hip-hop and pop on "Rapture." Blondie was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. As a solo artist, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards co-produced Harry's first release, KooKoo, in 1981 and she continued to defy expectations with such genre-busting efforts as "French Kissin (in the USA)," "Rush Rush," "Rain," and "The Jam Was Moving." With more than 50 million albums sold worldwide and acclaimed solo projects, Harry has also enjoyed a successful acting career with over 30 film and television roles to her credit (including Videodrome, Hairspray and Heavy, to name a few). She remains a true national treasure, one whose influence continues to impact the worlds of music, fashion, and art. Debbie Harry will forever be synonymous with that punk spirit that lives somewhere in all of us.
