Dean W.jpg

Born in Newfoundland, Canada, Dean grew up in Ottawa and still maintains a home near there, though still travels widely in the US and Canada. With 5 C.D.'s currently released, and 2 earlier vinyl records long out of print, he has an impressive legacy of original material. His strong lyrical style yields believable stories, honest emotions and a depth of understanding of the human spirit. His fluid sense of melody coupled with a sincere and powerful delivery has earned him respect and backing from an impressive array of musical friends, including guitarist Jim Weider (The Band, Los Lobos, Bob Dylan) drummer Gary Burke (Bob Dylan, Shania Twain, Joe Jackson), bassist Hugh MacDonald ( Bon Jovi, Cher, Alice Cooper). guitarist John Platania (Van Morrison, Don MacLean, Nathalie Merchant), keyboardist Jason Crosby (Toa Seeger, Art Garfunkel) and famed "Le Studio" Morin Heights engineer Simon Pressey (Rush, Shania Twain, Celine Dion, The Tea Party).
