ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Dean Station is made up of Amanda Dean, 26, on guitar, keyboard and spoons, and 24 year-old Levi Dean offering up mandolin, guitar, bass and fiddle. With the recent addition of Charlie O'Neal on percussion, the couple has rounded out their sound as they hit their musical stride on tour this summer. According to their bio, Amanda considers herself more of a poet than a songwriter, and credits Levi with helping her turn her poetry into music.

Both have been playing music since they were young, with Levi being nurtured within a family of songwriters and artists, playing and writing his own tunes since he was a teen. Their original music draws heavily on a folk, roots and bluegrass tradition, but with an ear toward a more contemporary sound.

The past few years have been quite a whirlwind for the group. In March of 2006 they released a self-titled album and hit the road for seven months of touring to support its debut. In the middle of the tour they took a break to tie the knot, and after the tour they relocated to Colorado. Keeping the buzz going, the prolific couple just released Raising the Root, this past July."

Excellent Modern Folk CD
“Raising the Root” by Dean Station is a soothing acoustic collection. Strong and melodic, these tunes are uncommonly passionate and pure. Dean Station’s male and female vocalists form the perfect duo, providing vocals that blend to produce lustrous harmonies. The musicianship throughout the CD is strong, especially the acoustic guitar work. “Flat Footin’ Girl” strays from the general mid-tempo pace present throughout this CD and finds its root in the folk arena. Clever lyrics paint motivational tales of love and triumph. “Pocket Full of Grace” stands out as a heart-felt, soaring ballad while demonstrating Dean Station’s straight-forward, positive lyrical approach. Great production and pacifying acoustic arrangements elevate “Raising the Root” to soaring heights of pleasurable listening.
