Baby Dee

Baby Dee

With a knack for balancing theatricality and real emotion, Cleveland singer/songwriter/pianist Baby Dee never succumbs to flash over substance. Dee proves that it’s possible to be a cabaret/performance artist and still have a heart – not to mention dignity and grace to boot. Her resumé namedrops collaborations with Will Oldham, Antony and the Johnsons, Andrew WK, and the Dresden Dolls. But once you’re in the room with her achingly barebones presentation, you won’t care less about the company Dee keeps. Her latest release, Book of Songs, actually first reared its lovely head in a very limited run back in 2004. It epitomizes just how honest and powerful a simple voice and piano can be.
