Brian Dean

Parachuting Buddha Records

The songs I've heard off this album (Life's a Beach) are truly remarkable! One thing that strikes me from the album is that (Brian) is an incredible story teller. Along with (his) great ability to tell a story, there is a lot of really insightful observations.

The Equal Ground

(Brian's) voice is deep and commanding. In fact, his voice is what creates a distinction from being just another song on the radio to something that may make you take out your smartphone and figure what you are listening to. His lyrics are simple and unpretentious. If you are looking for a band that sounds like a Pitchfork approved "indie rock" this is not it. This is a solid album of commercial country pop mix that sounds unapologetically refined.
