Rarely seen live don’t miss this opportunity to see this mesmerizing and funky UK talent! The night will feature some of her hits as well a range of exquisite new work which will be premiered tonight.
DC was a backing vocalist for the pop group Wham! In the early 1980s, but she left the group to work as a solo artist and also to join Paul Weller's band, The Style Council.
Following her departure from Wham! Lee released her first solo single, "Selina Wow Wow", in 1983 with considerable airplay. In 1984, she then worked with The Style Council and appeared on their debut album Café Bleu .Lee can be heard on the tracks "Headstart for Happiness," "It Didn't Matter," "The Lodgers," "Walls Come Tumbling Down," and "Shout to the Top."
In 1985, after the release of the second Style Council album Our Favourite Shop (which reached no.1) and a stint working with the band Animal Nightlife, Lee released another solo single; the self-penned ballad "See the Day". The single became a huge UK hit and peaked at no.3 in December 1985, selling a quarter of a million copies in the UK alone and earning Lee a Silver disc. Twenty years later, the song was covered by Girls Aloud, their version peaking at no.9 on the UK Singles Chart in December 2005.
