Hey friends, it's been too long again!
I want to start by thanking all of you that sent messages after the sad news about George. Although we hadn't been in touch for a while, his death touched me deeply and made me think of how young and innocent we all were when we were doing PA's around the country in a crappy old van. Sheer talent and hard work got George to the top, where he'll stay (For those that question why I didn't do any interviews - I refused).
I've just came back from another great writing session with Arden Hart and I'm really pleased with three new tunes, one a big slow ballad. If any of you were at any of my last gigs, you might remember "Mountains," another slow one, but much more sultry and sexy! I'm so excited and can't wait to start recording again.
And gigs? I want to!
The closer I get to having a new album, the more "interesting" the news I'll have to post. Until then, sending out love, peace health and happiness vibes..................xxxxx
Hey, it's me! Okay, so I've taken ages to get my s..t together and not just to be mum. My gorgeous kids are making their way in the world and doing great, so I'm gearing up mentally (and going to the gym) to start putting the final bits in place for my new project which I expect to launch at the end of next year (fingers crossed). The album will have some re-recorded or re-vamped old tunes (let me know of any you think would be good as I'm going through them all now) and lots of new tunes including co-writes with Arden Hart - who co-wrote a lot of "Smiles" and Adamski - who I wrote with ages ago in NY.
I know you'll ask if I plan to gig and the truth is it's so expensive when you want a band of great musicians (bless you for the offers), but I may do some semi acoustic type gigs of some sort, but haven't got as far as thinking how or what the line up would be - other than bv's. I guess it will also depend on what ends up being on the album as well.
I'm so excited about the next year or so and it's just so good to know that I have such support and loyalty from my little team that consists of me, Jill, Bernie and now Iain, and you my friends.
So now I can keep in touch either through this page or the Dee C Lee Facebook page on a regular basis at last.
Sending peace love and happiness, always.

I attended The Family Silver gig at Under The Bridge in Sept 2016 and it was lovely to surprise Steve White.
