Women Who Kick Ass
Baby Dee: Why she kicks ass
She performed as an accordion-playing “bilateral hermaphrodite” in Coney Island leading to a stint as the bandleader for the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus. She also became known for a street act in which she played harp atop a high-rise tricycle in Manhattan.
Baby Dee has worked with Antony and the Johnsons, Andrew WK, and many other artists on the New York City scene. She has toured extensively with Current 93, playing piano and harp. She has also toured with Marc Almond and The Dresden Dolls. In 2010 she toured with Little Annie.
In 2001, Baby Dee released her debut album, Little Window. The album was composed and produced by Dee and featured only her, singing and playing piano on seven songs bookended by two accordion instrumentals. Her second album, Love’s Small Song, was recorded in much the same fashion with Dee acting as the sole producer, composer, and performer. 
In 2010, Dee released her fourth album, a re-recording of a limited-edition book and CD entitled A Book of Songs for Anne Marie released by Durtro in 2004. The album  featured Dee, for the first time, predominantly using harp as opposed to piano. Following in the path ofSafe Inside the Day, it gained the artist further visibility and recognition.
