'12 Songs'
Dean Friedman



Dean's first new album in 7 years! Twelve brand new, original songs, filled with the consumate lyrical and musical brilliance, poignancy, revealing insight, wry humor and sheer artistry that listeners have come to expect from this master songsmith/recording-artist.  It's another eclectic Dean Friedman album, an amalgam of styles including jazz, pop, rock, folk and country. Its themes include songs of love, frustration, success and failure; songs about missing home, the terrors and joys of raising kids, dissertations on the physics of time and space, randomness and causality; there's a song dedicated to Malala Yousafzai, the brave defender of girls' right to an education; a song about Dean's old Martin D-35 acoustic guitar; a misanthrope's duet; and there's a song about ducks - a true story of the 'Easter Rising' - a failed 1916 uprising in Ireland. This is a 'must have' for any dedicated fan of Dean Friedman's music!  

Track Listing: Your Pretty Face, The Hummingbird Effect, Time Flies, I Could Fall For You, The Kite Song, Then You, The Ducks of St Stephen's Green, Loose Ends, Something Right, Your Friend Janet, This Guitar, Malala

Submarine Races is Dean's first new CD in 5 years! 13 brand new songs, lyrical soundscapes and storysongs, bursting with life, love and survival in a surreal world. One of Dean's best albums, yet.

Plus a special rebuttal to Half Man Half Biscuits, bestselling EP track, 'The Bastard Son of Dean Friedman' - 'A Baker's Tale', the unvarnished (and hilarious) truth about Nigel Blackwell's dubious origins. Guaranteed to deliver decades of listening pleasure. Order two and give one to a friend! ;-)

Rumpled Romeo
Dean Friedman Description: (The First Album) [1977] - This eponymously named album was Dean's very first release. The first single, Ariel, an infectious pop tune about a pot-smoking, vegetarian Jewish girl, went Top 20 in the US, out-of-the-box, and launched Dean on his recording career. Ariel, along with an album of consummately crafted and eclectic tracks like Solitaire, The Letter, Company, Funny Papers and Love is Not Enough, served to introduce Dean as a major new singer/songwriter/recording artist. Where it all began.
