Emerging from the New York punk scene, Chris Stein and Debbie Harry took the world by storm with their innovative production, sharp image and tales of urban heartbreak in Blondie.
As the songwriting partnership at the heart of Blondie, they penned some of the most definitive songs at the turn of the '80s, mixing spiky guitars, raw synths, and driving drums that enraptured and inspired kids and rebels around the world.
They created their own sound from New York’s melting pot of punk, wave, reggae and hip hop, all shot through with Deborah Harry's cool soul. Plus, her style set the tone for the punk and new wave scenes.
