The best kept secret in music

Press


"Passionate and introspective, Thank Your Friends finds singer/songwriter Jake Dean tackling a range of feeling with depth and sincerity. From the bluesy dirge of "Healing Song" to the sunshine-evoking "Newport," Dean is not afraid to express his emotions; be them serious or lighthearted. Listeners will find Dean's message of living in the present resonating throughout his material, but if this any indication of what's to come from this talented songster, one can't help but look forward."

"Jake Dean has successfully mixed a Dylan-esque style of singing with a heartfelt blend of acoustic and electric guitars, all backed by a solid rhythm section."

Feeling a bit camera shy

Bio

My music is feeling driven! Whether it be in the message of the song, or in the sound of a string's soulful bend, feeling is being poured out! Growing up, I was exposed to "live" music at an early age, and it's not hard to see how much that has influenced my constantly evolving style. I'm mostly influenced by soulful Artists and Bands that aren't afraid to improv. Such as: Jerry Garcia (GD), Ben Harper, John Bell (WSP), Neil Young, Eddie Vedder, Warren Haynes, Greg Allman, Todd Park Mohr (BHT), and The Dave Mathews Band! Having a true passion for live performance, I take great pride in my shows! I'm always incorporating new improvisation, transitions, and song selections to assure that no two shows are ever played the same!

Currently, I just finished recording a brand new full length album in Nashville, TN. Though some of my music can be dark, as real life is sometimes, I always count on positivity to prevail!! I've never been more excited about this than now!! That's why this 2007 release entitled "Thank Your Friends" is dedicated to my friends, family, and The One Above! If I can give back to people, with my music, even a fraction of the joy that music has given me, than I'm doing my job well!!!

See you out there,

Jake Dean
