Born on Chicago's West Side, Dee Alexander is one of the city's most gifted and respected vocalists and songwriters. Her talents span every music genre, from gospel to R & B, blues to neo-soul. Yet her true heart and soul are experienced in their purest form through jazz. Growing up in a household steeped in the recordings of Dinah Washington, Alexander names Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald, and Chicago saxophonist Henry Huff among her major influences, all of which set her on the path to becoming one of the most accomplished voice improvisers in the world today. Alexander is currently a WFMT Jazz Radio host.
