Multi-instrumentalist, Dee Sada (voice/drums/guitar/bass/piano) is hugely inspired by the confessional poetry of Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath and the work of outsider artist, Mary Barnes, who was a resident of radical psychiatrist RD Laing’s therapeutic community at Kingsley Hall in the 1960s. She is currently working on an experimental sound piece based on Mary Barnes’ story, The Hollow Tree.
Dee’s musical inspirations range from German New Wave band, Malaria! to Indian classical Carnatic vocalist, M. S. Subbulakshmi.
