Songs Without Words – Dan Dean



Achieving international recognition through his 40-year career as a bassist and as an award-winning producer, composer, and recording engineer, Dan Dean is a truly multi-faceted artist constantly seeking new challenges and outlets for expressing the music he hears. For his debut vocal recording, Dean came about it in a very roundabout way.

What began as a “what if” experiment turned into a musically ambitious, technically challenging effort. Often angelic, or haunting, or exuberant, “Songs Without Words” is a culmination of his musical experiences over a lifetime, captured by a single microphone.
