Another Flame – Dee’s 14 track ear-worm album hits the net as download 25.05.17

The groove driven variation of pop themes is packed with Dee’s love for power pop, goose bump ballads, Birmingham reggae & Nashville vibes & includes the recent Top-20 hit "Hey-La", which was covered by German cult band City. “HeyYa” is now riding the media control radio charts, along with the UK proven radio stonkers “My only regret”, “Dave the DJ”, the atmospheric “Vonny” & the tongue in cheek summer groove “Making Dollars”.
The album opens up with the Tijuana/Chicago like horns of “The honeymoon is over now” followed by the lavish multi track vocal sound of “Letting go”. Dee’s striking falsetto is in full flight on the heart wrenching “I won’t cry”, then he takes us for a ride with the country flavored "Take a second”. The sax hook line of “Are you sure” asks a lovers' question of uncertainty and the dynamic marching anthem “Stay” is guaranteed to become a “Dee evergreen”. The title track “Another Flame” gives us optimism after love falls apart at the seems with an endearing retro-vibe lighting the way into the horny “Night Fire” – a breath taking climax which is gently eased down by the Euro hit “Hey-La” and complimented by the spine tingling ballad “Watching you sleep”. This Hollywood bound soundtrack closes Dee’s most proudest moment to date. “Another Flame” – a pop album full of Hamburg passion, from an artist/writer producer with Claret & Blue blood …
More to come real soon! Hit the BASS!

 

"If there’s a chance"

The 5 track EP features two versions of the soaring anthem, the “Tomah” Remix & the original album edit. In a recent You Tube interview with presenter Dave Wakeham, Dee tells the moving story of how the double-edged ballad was written. “It was January 1989; my mother had passed away after losing her battle with cancer, & as I returned to Hamburg after mom’s funeral, I sat in my studio surrounded by photographs of her precious memory.
My grief got the better of me as I sat at the piano, I began to sing through my tears & the song seemed to power its way through my heartache. The original lyric was far too personnel to release, and as time drifted by the healing process began to ease the darkest days of my life. It was now August 1990 and the world was confronted with a new dilemma.
The Gulf War had begun. My younger brother was fresh in the military and the whole scenario became a major concern for us all. The world looked on as history began to repeat its ugly self yet again, it seemed nothing had been learned from the past. My own anxiety & feelings inspired me to make a few changes to the lyric.
The sentiments of hope in finding a cure for cancer now carried a double-edged sword; If there’s a chance became an anthem for humanity, freedom and eternal optimism. If love, tolerance and compassion could erase the need for war, this was my contribution to that hope!
It wasn’t until late 2016 that a UK Radio Station picked up on the haunting ballad and gave it the air play it much deserved. In a listener survey its been voted his most loved track to date. In January 2017 Dee decided to edit the original album track with keyboard partner Thomas Jobmann into the “Tomah” radio-remix. The EP includes the brand new “We gotta get over this” An atmospheric reggae groove which tells the story of a long-time relationship that’s hit the rocks, & finds the couple attempting to save the day before it’s too late. Dee says “Reggae has always been a big part of my life, and each of my records contains at least one or two of the much loved influences”. The video mix of “Get me out of here” and the chill Instrumental “Natinasa” make up the EP package.
Release date 27.03.17.

The beginning of my second journey

Dee’s brand new single is available as download as from 27.11.14 and is one of his most passionate lyrical works to date. The song is pure "Private Emotion", coming from one of Dee’s most dramatic personal experiences. Dee recalls the inspiration behind the song:
"In May 2010 I  suffered a massive heart attack and "My name is" takes me back to that day. I knew what was happening the moment I collapsed to the ground. I was in a helpless cold sweat and could feel myself slipping away, but an inner voice whispered for me to hang on. It was surreal. I wasn’t in pain I just felt so helpless with my body swimming towards insensibility. My son Leon had just run a 5000 meter race and I was celebrating him crossing the line. Then it struck.
I was lucky, as I was surrounded by people, if I’d been alone, I wouldn’t have survived. The medics were amazing and the whole situation shed a brand new light over my life. I was so grateful to be able to stand up on my own two feet again. This song is every beat of my being,  it’s a simple yet powerful message of gratitude to the doctors who pulled me through. It’s me. it’s all that I am, skin and bone, and a heart that that pounds with endless passion.

I lost my father to a heart attack , and I know it was his spirit calling from the other side. May 13th 2010 was the beginning of my second journey & "My Name is" celebrates every single step."

 

Rubery – the time-machine got started ...

Dee’s long awaited tribute song to the village of Rubery and the city of Birmingham (where he grew up), hits the web 07.10.14. The passionate Pop/Rock stomp is guaranteed not only to get your feet moving, the catchy hook line will be “tattooed on your brain” with no escape. Once heard never forgotten, the crafted verses set the mood of the story line which lead into the massive chorus, which Dee foresees the West Midlands could be chanting for years to come.
"This song is dedicated to my heritage and the people who grew up listening to pop music with A & B sides. Music let us paint our own pictures in those days, and I want to relive that magic with my Rubery time-machine. I left the Uk over 30 years ago but my passion for those childhood memories still remain so precious. Rubery is based on nostalgia, and will hopefully take my fellow Brummies’ forward and embrace the years ahead influenced by the good old days of guitar oriented driving beats & urban chants".
1956…. put the record on Mama…. Rubery was out of sight…. let’s dance people.!!!! Download the Rubery time-machine! Press play and let the memories rock you back for 4.30 Mins of great VIBES….
