Recalling a Bygone Era of Texas Honky-Tonk Music, Scott Dean Does It “All Over Again” 

Scott Dean is doing it all over again! After ten years as a contemporary rock and roller (selling more than 50,000 albums and performing over 1,000 shows across the world), Dean is emerging onto the Texas Country scene with a honky-tonk vibe that gets back to the basics of dancin’ and drinkin’ the night away in true dancehall fashion. As a country newcomer, with a respect and admiration for the artists who started it all, it’s only fitting that Dean’s traditional sound reminds of Buck Owen’s Bakersfield, Johnny Cash’s fiery spirit, Dwight Yoakam’s vocal style and an era of country music’s past that many long for.

Dean’s first full-length Texas Country album, “All Over Again” (October 27), is filled with songs meant for a foot stompin,’ two-steppin’ good time. With a carefree energy that will make any youthful spirit want to crack open a beer and sing along, it was his intent that each tune on the record be uplifting and fun.“Country tends to have the ability to make people either really happy or really sad, I wanted people to hear this music and wish they were out on a Saturday Night,” stated Dean. “Each song started as a rough idea written on a bar napkin and I wanted that same essence to be captured on the record.”

 Influenced by a vast range of styles, Dean pushed the envelope before transforming “fist-pumping sunshine rock” into a unique version of Texas Country. A big fan of ‘60s and ‘70s country, Dean cites country rock pioneers The Flying Burrito Brothers  and The Byrds as inspiration to leaping into the new genre. Dean has closely followed the careers of Willie Nelson, Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), and John Lennon, citing their ability to never stay in one place and constantly pushing themselves as artists. Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, and Ray Davies of The Kinks have heavily influenced his writing over the years too and Texas mainstays Charlie Robison, Hayes Carll and Robert Earl Keen all have elements of vivid storytelling he aspires to convey.

 “I have a bit of an old soul and have always found myself listening to more music from past generations than my own,” Dean recalls. “I am heavily influenced by many genres and styles and know this can sometimes affect my music. To me, the best artists are the ones that listen with an open mind and never stop experimenting with their writing.”

 “All Over Again” shows Dean is going all in as a Texas Country artist; exchanging funky rhythms and synthesizers for pedal-steel and fiddle, the melodies will get stuck in your head and the raucous, high energy live performances will keep the dance floors filled. An extended version of the EP “Re-Shuffle” (which had two radio singles “Hungover All Over Again” and “1234”), “All Over Again” boasts the support of the Texas House of Representatives, who recognized Dean’s “allegiance to upbeat melodies, high-energy songs, and memorable lyrics” with a State Resolution passed in his honor. With a nod to his new country status it reads that “through his musical endeavors, Scott Dean is contributing to the cultural vibrancy of the Lone Star State, and he is indeed deserving of recognition as he embarks on the next exciting chapter of his career.”

No stranger to the Texas Country touring scene (despite fronting a very successful rock band for more than a decade), Dean has shared the stage with legends Robert Earl Keen, the Old 97s, Randy Rogers, Hayes Carll, Stoney LaRue, Kevin Fowler and Josh Abbott. His busy schedule, which has also included a statewide radio tour, has him playing such noted venues as Firehouse Saloon (Houston), Thirsty Armadillo (Ft. Worth Stockyards), The House of Blues (Houston and Dallas), The Granada Theater (Dallas), Gilley’s (Dallas), and Love & War(Grapevine and Plano).

“Making this kind of music is something I’ve wanted to do for years,” Dean said. “Living in Texas my entire life, I have always been exposed to it, and had such an admiration for classic country and its ability to vividly bring stories to life. It’s my hope the songs on ‘All Over Again’ do just that.”
