American Lullaby
'American Lullaby'
Dean Friedman

Dean Friedman's powerful new album, 'American Lullaby' is already being hailed, by fans and critics alike, as one of the finest of his four-decade career. A must-have for any serious, or even casual, fan of Dean's music. Says Dean, ‘American Lullaby’ reflects my personal view of all the insane stuff that’s been happening, in America – and around the world - for the last six years. I'm just as befuddled and confused and incredulous as everyone else about what's been happening, so I wrote these songs, and recorded this album, to try and make some kind of sense of it all. Like all lullabies, it’s filled with tales of dark deeds and disaster, but couched in soft, gentle tones, meant to soothe and comfort the listener, while gently bracing them for the potential terrors that await. And I promise it's not all gloom and doom. I'm insistent on hope, laughter and joy, and the album is filled with plenty of humor and an ample does of silliness to help keep a healthy perspective on where we are and what may lie ahead." PRE-ORDER YOUR COPIES NOW for an August 27th RELEASE [& SHIP] DATE.

Track Listing: American Lullaby, Too Much Stuff, Halfway Normal World, The Swing of Things, The Russians Are Coming, Sorry 'bout That, Welcome to Stupid Town, Ridin' with Biden, Wear a Mask, I Wish You Joy, Just Another Birthday Song, On a Summer's Night


'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

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.
