"Hip Hop in Flip Flops (5 stars)"

Another underappreciated creative assault by veteran wordsmith Vic Dean. It's a kinda-rap, tongue-in-cheek, hilarious tune about a farm boy having an identity crisis as a gangsta rap star wannabee.....BUY IT - crank it at your next party - you'll be "freaky farm fresh - til the cows come home!" -Peace - iTunes

"Refreshing (5 stars)"

Well written, great tune

"MUST HAVE - SPOKEN WORD at it's finest!"

Underground musician Vic Dean never ceases to amaze. His story telling, artistic composition and ability to captivate the listener is on high alert with his latest single Mr. Thistle. It's a very clever, creative and surreal conversation that's comedic and creepy at the same time! Sure Mr. Thistle is abstract and obtuse but that what's real ART is all about. A MUST MUST HAVE FOR YOUR SONIC COLLECTION!!

Vic Dean is the latest creative alias for the Hyrdolic Sno-Men and SWAG front man, Jimmy Dean Harrell.

Originally from Adkins, Texas, a tiny town south east of San Antonio, he now resides in Freeland, Michigan. He is an Air Force Veteran that some time ago decided to take a break from music to marry, finish college, start a family & a business. Although he has never stopped writing, he has recently returned to the music scene.

Initially, upon returning to the scene, he intended to focus on a traditional acoustic / singer songwriter format. However, because of past influences (or corruptions) and an enjoyment for alternative / experimental formats he is still searching for his musical "sweet spot". His songs can be serious, silly or outright stupid.

Lyrically, he has been described as dark & deep but does enjoy a tongue-in-cheek-don't-take-yourself-too-serious approach to some topics. Musically, he plays acoustic and electric guitars with a quirky southpaw style that keeps evolving. He prefers an abstract yet semi-confessional approach to songwriting.

Vic Dean has no official end game with his music endeavors commenting: "It's just good self-therapy". He writes his own lyrics and music and self-records, produces & publishes songs. He is endlessly pondering how to best channel his creative energies, while upgrading his studio to start yet another project and release more tracks into the great digital dumpster.
