BABY DEE TO EMBARK ON SUMMER TOUR IN SUPPORT OF REGIFTED LIGHT
One of entertainment’s most flamboyant musical artistes of the last decade, Baby Dee returned last year with a new LP, Regifted Light, released on Drag City Records. The album is not merely charming, nor simply enchanting and/or deeply touching – it is also an unusually arrayed album, scattering four vocal performances among eight smartly arranged, classically focused instrumentals, creating quintessential Baby Dee in all her unconventional glory. Baby Dee’s musical career has seen her perform worldwide with musical connoisseurs such as Will Oldham (who co-produced Safe Inside the Day with Matt Sweeney), Antony Hegarty, Marc Almond, Alex Neilson, David Tibet, and most recently, Andrew WK on Regifted Light, who produced the dramatic affair.
Baby Dee will embark on a tour that takes her from the Midwest to the Great White North to the Pacific Northwest and back to the Midwest. While the new record is essentially a love affair with a Steinway D grand piano, she’ll be touring with her trusty harp, an instrument many of us know Dee best behind.
Dee also recently released a live record on Tin Angel Records called Baby Dee Goes Down to Amsterdam, which can be purchased here.
