Singer-songwriter Rich Deans has become a sought-after performer on the acoustic music scene, sharing stages with the likes of
Bill Staines, Rod MacDonald, The Greencards, George Wurzbach of Modern Man, Kate Jacobs, Pat Wictor, and numerous other local and national touring acts. Rich has performed at venues from New York’s late-lamented Bottom Line to the Bluebird Café in Nashville to Sweetwater’s in Mill Valley,California with many stops in between. Rich has also been a staff songwriter for ABC/Dunhill, Laurel Canyon Music, Dreena Publishing and Castle Hill Music. His song “Blue Eyes and White Lies”, written for Kim Carnes, was chosen by Billboard Magazine as album cut “pick hit” and his composition “Tiger on The Lawn” was recorded by Paul Cotton of the country-rock band POCO for his solo record. Recently, Pat Wictor included a beautiful cover version of Rich’s composition “Don’t Dig My Grave Too Deep” on his CD Waiting for the Water and Hope Machine have followed Pat’s lead by covering Rich’s song, “You Can Count On Me” on their most recent release March with great guest backing vocals by the ladies of Red Molly.
