Watch Baby Dee & Little Annie Live in Kopenhagen
"Angels Gone Before" live - May 2013 (Jazzhouse Kopenhagen DK)
Baby Dee is fully enjoying her life as artist in residence in Amsterdam at the moment, and what better way to celebrate this than with a concert? Well, it's on next Friday, Joe Carvell will join her and admission is Free!
Baby Dee will also provide the musical entertainment for the talk show Fluisterende olifanten (Whispering elephants) next Sunday. And as of on Thursday Baby Dee and mugmetdegoudentand (goldentoothedmusquito) will perform FUNZONE exclusively in Amsterdam till 16 March. Don't miss it!
Remember Christina de Vos, who created the gorgeous slugs and snails for the Regifted Light album cover? If you did, you probably fell in love with her work head over heals, just like Baby Dee did. So you'll be glad to hear she has just published a book, that allows you to get better acquainted with her work.
Baby Dee's love for bees is well-known, but how about mosquitoes? If you happen to be in The Netherlands (or Belgium), you'll can find out in the coming months, in which she joins theatre company mugmetdegoudentand (goldentoothedmosquito) in FUNZONE.
Good news for all American fans who have been missing out on Baby Dee's European concerts last year: now it's your turn! Dee's 2012 USA Summer Tour will take her from the Midwest to Canada, to the Pacific East and back to the Midwest again.
First stop, today, Moca Detroit.
January 24 2012: Baby Dee recital and Christina de Vos exhibition
Hooray! Hooray! In January Baby Dee will once more perform surrounded by her beloved slugs and snails, in De Unie in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. This one time special event will be a combination of a Baby Dee solo recital and an exhibition by Rotterdam artist Christina de Vos.
The exhibition will include the cover art Christina de Vos made for Baby Dee's album Regifted Light, as well as other Baby Dee related work, like baby saint and the I love you baby dee billboard design.
Today Baby Dee's second release of 2011 Baby Dee Goes Down To Amsterdam, will be launched by Tin Angel Records. Baby Dee Goes Down To Amsterdam is a double CD that captures her travels across Europe to a destination that's dear to her heart: Amsterdam. The album was recorded live at the world famous Amsterdam jazz venue The Bimhuis, during the 2009 Holland Festival. The concert was broadcasted on national radio and those who attended it consider it one of Dee's most memorable concerts.

May 12th, 2011 in Cleveland, Ohio
A few weeks from now Baby Dee will start her Regifted Light tour, during which a special house concert will be held at her home in Cleveland, Ohio. As space is limited, only a very happy few will be able to attend the concert and experience the album's music in the exact environment in which it was recorded during the winter of 2010. So Matthew Robinson, Mark Messing and Jon Steinmeir will join Baby Dee on May 12th, 2011 with their wide range of instruments.
Dee’s music is poetic, romantic and humorous, her supple voice is a thing of wonder and she is quite capable of throwing the listener a curveball. Just when you think: “aha, it’s all very touching and tremulous”, The Pie Song demands “I want that pie / Give that pie to me… Or I will be so sad” to dramatic Hollywood fight scene music!
Who'd have thought Baby Dee would make it into Vogue Italia? Well, she did, or at least part of her did. The occassion? Italian fashion designer Fabio Quaranta's 2011-2012 fall winter collection, that was inspired by "Aleph at Hallucinatory Mountain", a 2009 album by Current 93.
