Dean's Recording Studio Official EX~PO Webspace EX~PO on MySpace Sell your music everywhere


EX~PO is the musical vision of Dean Marino, a Toronto-based songwriter and record producer. In 2004 he released a collection of songs he recorded alone in his bedroom and called it, Harsh Lenses Point Homeward. The record met some critical acclaim, but Dean did not play live, let the album sink into obscurity and focused instead on his production career. After a few life-disasters, the purchase of a recording studio (he co-owns and operates Chemical Sound) and months spent experimenting in said studio, Dean recorded a full-length follow up to Harsh Lenses and called it, Central Meaner Street. In July of 2008, he quietly released the album (available as a limited edition Vinyl LP and digital download) and with the help of four close friends brought the album to life through a series of select shows. Through these live shows and meagre record sales EX~PO has garnered both praise and support from the Canadian music scene. Now that Dean and company have lived with Central Meaner Street for a few months, they have decided to embark on a new musical journey together and are currently working on new EX~PO material as a live quartet.
