Debi Derryberry is one of Hollywood’s most active voice-over artists. Debi started acting at the age of 8 in local theatre and when she was only nine years old, she got her first guitar and wrote “My Dog’s My Buddy,” which is featured on her first CD, “What A Way to Play.” For 7 years, Debi fronted her Country Band, “Honey Pig” which placed in the top Los Angeles Country Bands.
Debi has toured the country performing her preschool music from all three preschool CDs: “What a Way To Play,” “Very Derryberry,” and “Baby Banana!”. “Baby Banana,” the title song from her third CD went to number one on the charts for XM/Sirius Radio! Debi Derryberry is also an author of, “Baby Banana,” and “The Licorice Tree,” written to accompany the CD of the same name. In February 2016, Debi released her first voice-over instructional book, Voice-Over 101: How to Succeed as a Voice Actor.
Debi excelled in high school, serving as captain of the gymnastics team and on the student council, graduated from UCLA as a pre-med candidate, and ultimately, seeking to explore her creative side, moved to Nashville, Tennessee. After three years in Music City, she returned to Los Angeles to launch her voiceover career, and she has garnered feature roles in numerous high-profile films and TV shows.
She has voiced hundreds of cartoon characters but is best known for the voices of Jimmy Neutron, Speedy Alka Seltzer, Jake in “Taz-mania,” Draculaura in Mattel’s “Monster High,” Maureen on “F is for Family,” Candy on “Glitter Force,” and Playhouse Disney’s host, “Clay.” Other work includes “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Toy Story” 1 and II, “iCarly,” “IceAge 2,” “Oswald the Octopus” and “The Lorax.”
As part of Voice Actors Rock!, Debi Derryberry will be performing with the Tazmaniacs, a band that she, along with voice actors Jim Cummings and Rob Paulsen, founded over twenty years ago. We are thrilled that the Tazmaniacs will be reuniting for our charity concert!
