Biography

Australian indie rock veteran Dean is probably best known as bassist, vocalist and one of the principal songwriters with Australian band 9½ INCAS and as ‘The Rabbi’ in the politically-incorrect musical collective known as ASYLUM NATION, which toured (or is it ‘tore’?) around the UK between 2004 and 2006. His music has been heard everywhere from background music to the weather forecast on Japanese television to the soundtrack of cult movie ICED LOLLY at the Cannes International Film Festival, and his work can be found in the State Library of South Australia and the National Library Of Australia as examples of contemporary Australian music.

Dean’s music has been heard everywhere from background music to the weather forecast on Japanese television to the soundtrack of cult movie ICED LOLLY at the Cannes International Film Festival, and his work can be found in the State Library of South Australia and the National Library Of Australia as examples of contemporary Australian music. Since his earliest performances as a busker, playing everywhere from Adelaide (his hometown in Australia) to Tokyo, Dean has been enamoured with the singer-songwriters of the late-60s/early-70s, and this influence has manifested itself in the songs that he has contributed to every project that he has been involved in throughout a career spanning 30 years.

Several years living and performing in Japan (as well as three highly successful Japanese tours with 9½ INCAS in 1999-2001 and a stint as bassist/vocalist with Japanese band DIA MONDo) has given Dean’s songs a unique flavour, the result of blending elements of 1970s Japanese folk-pop with alternative and progressive rock genres and creating a style that is familiar and yet difficult to define.
