Biography

Dee D Jackson, real name Deirdre Elaine Cozier, Born in Oxford, England in 1954.

Her Father Roy was a Jazz Pianist and her mother Gloria a chorus girl, dancer and singer, Dee is the the eldest of six children.

She was very young when she started playing musical instruments, like the violin and piano, and taking classical dance lessons, but it wasn’t until she began middle school that her real talent came to light.

It was her music teacher that started to nurture her talent, she was chosen to represent her school in all of the concerts that were possible to be part of, and also singing at church weddings.

Her extravagant personality and passion for music made it possible for Dee to meet and get to know famous musicians and Rock bands of that time.

Dee D started her professional career much later in the middle of the seventies, after a trip to Munich, where she met top producers and musicians on the German dance music scene Like Keith Forsey, Harold Feltameyer and Giorgio Moroder.

She began working as a backing vocalist, working with artists like Lou Rawls, and Deodata and sang on a few American adverts, and with a little help from her friends lending her backing tracks, she worked in clubs all over Germany doing one hour sets.

Although things didn’t happen overnight, it wasn’t that long before Dee was in the studio recording her first single with the bass player/Producer Gary Unwin from Munich Machine and his wife Patty Unwin who later became her manager.
