Dee Adams has been likened to some of today's most influential women in music - women like Bonnie Raitt, Edie Brickell, Jonatha Brooke, and Sheryl Crow. With an education in vocal performance (from both Eastman and Berklee),

Dee writes and sings punchy, poetic, acoustically driven songs drenched in hooks and harmonies, while her voice is warm, rich, and bluesy. Reviews have coined Dee’s style as “earthy”, “sweet to spunky”, and have said that she has “lyrics that speak to the heart and mind”.

Among Dee’s accolades and accomplishments is her appearance on the 2002 Songs Inspired By Literature compilation. Having been named Grand Prize Winner of the 2002 Songs Inspired by Literature songwriting contest, Dee’s song “Pennsylvania” can be found alongside tracks donated by David Bowie, Roseanne Cash, Steve Earle, and Tom Waits.

In February 2003, Dee’s EP with travelling band The Roadtrippers was released on Sage Indie Music, called Taking My Time. A lush, well produced set of songs punctuate the intention of Dee’s music – to keep some fun in the act of

In 2005, after a short 10 months of playing her music in Buffalo NY, Dee was award Top Original Acoustic Act in the Buffalo Music Awards.

2008 started off with a band, when American Songwriter magazine listed Dee at #29 in their Top 50 Amateur Songwriters listing. Her song "Good Hand, Bad Gun" earned this honor, and it will be on the upcoming full lenght album, entitled "Widow".

Currently, Dee Adams is working with new musicians as Dee & The Housecats to create a true rootsrock music experience. From Dylan to Wilco, Sheryl Crow to Pretenders, old blues songs to originals, Dee & The Housecats are putting their sound all over Buffalo.
