Chicago's lead Rock N’ Souler and Ruby Records recording artist - BAILEY DEE found the rock and roll handbook and she reads it right! She comes out swinging with the ferocity of a young Etta James, the sweetness of Lorrie Collins, and the soulful swagger of Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Recently awarded Rockabilly Female of The Year by the Ameripolitan Music Association in Memphis, Tennessee, this young lady will surely show you what she's been showing crowds all over the world; the love, respect, and pure joy she brings to her vintage sound. Her impressive range and warm, rich voice will embrace you and put you in a spell, all while bringing a raw, edgy sound with her guitar. A not to miss up-and-comer!A full band backs her featuring members of legendary R&B Chicagoan Andre Williams band and ex-Million Dollar Quartet.


Screaming on a rocker in a way that would make Jay Hawkins proud, or coaxing tears from jaded audiences with a pining ballad, Bailey Dee covers the spectrum with ease. 

Her northern soul/r&b and pre 60's rock repertoire is spot on, due to her extensive collection of vinyl which she DJs at legendary whiskey purveyor Delilahs every second Tuesday of the Month.
