David Dee recently returned to his home city of Belfast with a CD launch in the Black Box stunning the audience with a selection of original songs that cross over from a country roots hybrid mix to catchy contemporary Irish melodies. Each song is delicately arranged with some of Northern Ireland’s finest musicians hand picked to play on the project.

‘I grew up playing with most of the people on the recording in various bands while learning my trade in the north. This is a collection of the many different types of music that have influenced me that all ultimately stem from my Belfast roots.’

The CD is engineered and co-produced by Irish traditional musician Donal O’Connor of ‘At First Light’ fame and features Nicky Scott (ex-Van Morrison) on double bass, Belfast Blues guitar legend Paul Harden, Peter McKinney (ex-Waterboys) on drums, John McCullough (ex-Waterboys) on keyboards, Neil Martin on ‘cello and Colin Henry on dobro, to name but a few.

David Dee created ‘The Loose Connections’ with singer Niamh Parsons and utile an piper John McSherry in 1991. He part wrote and arranged the ‘Loosely Connected’ album with the Edinburgh folk label Greentrax Records and produced and wrote the majority of the tracks on the follow up ‘Loosen up’ album for the USA label Green Linnet. He toured all over the world with Niamh playing in every major folk festival including the Queens Festival in Belfast.

After Niamh and David Dee parted ways he stepped out of the background and began writing and performing his original songs that culminated in a CD called ‘The Almighty warrior’ which he only made available on tour in the USA.
His services have been in demand for writing on television and radio. Writing music for award winning documentaries, short films, educational programmes. He has even written the music for the BBC ‘Radio Ulster series ‘A perforated Ulster’ with ‘The Hole in the wall gang’.

Although known as a bassist playing with such luminaries like Liam Clancy, Juliet Turner, Jerry Fish...David Dee is highly accomplished songwriter, producer and singer and is well regarded in the music business.
