"Just Something"

We’re hugely excited to announce the brand new album from Dee C. Lee – ‘Just Something’, out 22 March on Acid Jazz. It follows the incredible response to the new single ‘Walk Away’ and last year’s double-sider ‘Don’t Forget About Love’ / ‘Be There In The Morning’, marking the return of one of the UK’s most revered soul singers. Dee is known for her work with The Style Council, Wham!, Slam Slam and Animal Nightlife, and an illustrious solo career (including the Top 3 hit ‘See The Day’). ‘Just Something’ is her first new record since 1998, and her debut for Acid Jazz. Available on LP and CD, all pre-orders from the Acid Jazz Store will be signed by Dee. A limited edition blue vinyl LP is available exclusively from Acid Jazz. Pre-order now!  ORDER HERE and further details

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Hey all you lovely people Seasons Greetings!

Yet another very difficult year for so many and I continue to pray that it will get better.

It's always hard to talk about the good things that are going on when others are suffering, but I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the amazing encouragement and support you've given me through the year by your kind words and by buying my first single. 

As always I must apologize for not being able to reply to your comments and questions due to my
complete lack of technical ability, but in answer to the most asked question, yes, I do expect to play 
some live shows in the Summer.

The last few months have been a whirlwind of radio and press interviews to promote the single and I've loved every minute of it and thoroughly enjoyed talking to all the interviewers'.  With that in mind, I want to thank the team that has worked so hard. Ed, Dean, Phil, Nathan, Scott, Lloyd, Amanda, Katie, Iain, Erika, Jill and Tristan - you've been brilliant, thank you!

Thank you again my friends. I wish you a peaceful, healthy, happy, kind, loving Christmas and 2024."

Dee xxxx

WHAM! Had the most wonderful evening at the screening of the Wham! film.  So good to see many people I hadn't seen for years and years and to make some new friends.  I had forgotten so muchabout those happy times so it was quite a surprise to see all the old footage, it brought back so many memories.  I did cry quite a bit, but I think we all did. Out in July on Netflix.
