Pauline Matthews is now going on her 53rd year in the music business.  

Better known as Kiki Dee, the Bradford-born songstress has hit the charts twice with Elton. Don’t Go Breaking My Heart went to No. 1 in both the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and the UK Singles chart. And in 1993, their version of Cole Porter’s True Love hit reached #2 in the UK.

In the early 1990’s Kiki joined forces with songwriter, producer and guitarist Carmelo Luggeri, who had worked with Ray Cooper, Bill Wyman, Julian Lennon, Andy Williams, Paul Rodgers, Kenney Jones, Chris Rea and Ralph McTell.

Over the last 21 years, Kiki and Carmelo have successfully toured the UK and Europe with their unique acoustic-based show.
