DEE & THE SWEET SOMETHINGS is an alternative-folk music collective based in Wellington.
In DEE’s years as a singer-songwriter, they have featured on national radio, performed at several New Zealand festivals, including the Newtown Festival and Lunasa, and regularly gig around the Wellington region.
DEE is inspired by the city of artists in which they live and are captivated by the human experience, using music to explore its intangible nature. They sing with a gentle, sultry, and fluid tone, alongside a glittering guitar sound, inviting listeners into the warmth of their music.
DEE is thrilled to be supported by their SWEET SOMETHINGS: Maxime Paquay on bass and backing vocals, and Ryder Smith on drums.
Sharply bitter yet sickeningly sweet, Danica Bryant is no ordinary songwriter. Born to the fruitful music scene in Napier, New Zealand, her songs cover intense topics such as adolescence, mental health, and young love. “All hard guitar and pain-filled howl” (The Hook NZ), this woman truly bites back.
