Chicago's lead Rock N’ Souler - Bailey Dee found the rock and roll handbook and reads it right! Reminding many of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, with the sweetness of Lorrie Collins, and the ferocity of a young Etta James. 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.
