Debbie Harry (born July 1, 1945) is a Miami-born American rock and roll musician who originally gained fame as the frontwoman for New Wave band Blondie in the 1970s and 80s. She was a regular at CBGB's, a famous New York City club that was an early epicenter for punk rock.

She succeeded and has returned to music, being the current lead singer in The Jazz Passengers, and releasing the Blondie reunion album No Exit in 1999.
