Though he was born in Greenwood Mississippi, David moved to East St. Louis with his family as an infant. He began singing with a spiritual group at the age of 12. When he reached the age of 16, he moved to Chicago and in 1963 after a stint in the military, returned to East St. Louis to form his first musical group, David and the Temptations. Following the break-up of the group, he free-lanced as a singer for other groups such as Clyde Jones, Walter Rice, Wahtachie and others.
David has released numerous CDs, which include a substantial body of original work, perhaps most notably his hit record "Going Fishing", which colorfully portrays the consequences of neglecting a spouse. It has been suitably described as ST. Louis blues anthem.
Considered by many to be St. Louis’s reigning blues king, David Dee has earned the title of one of his original standards, "Workin Blues Man". The moniker embodies the various roles of bandleader, song writer, guitarist, entertainer, and singer that has been cultivated through 40 plus years of travels, recording and performing. From Parisian Hotels to East St. Louis VFW halls to festivals in Amsterdam, his performances have delighted just about every type of audience imaginable.
