Biography All Music Guide
All Music Guide:
With his ultra-smooth vocals and easygoing persona, Michael Dees is the consummate lounge singer. Voted Best New Male Singer at the International Popular Song Festival in 1968, Dees has gone on to sing in such films as A Walk in the Rain, Day of the Locust, The Happy Ending, Buddy Buddy, Sabrina, and Slow Dancing in the Big City. His vocals were featured on two episodes of The Simpsons.
Dees' ability to re-create the vocals of Frank Sinatra came in handy when HBO produced the original biopic The Rat Pack in 1998. Refused use of the original recordings by Sinatra's estate, the cable network turned to Dees, whose singing provided some of the film's best moments. Dees released his debut solo album, One Single Rose, in 2002.
