ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the late 80's Wolfe's resume would list : Toronto Star Delivery child-laborer, shoulder-pad fashion hustler in Stitches, Whopper flipper, shingle ripper, and chainsaw massacre. He even hosed frothing corn niblet scum at a Green Giant's factory before landing his dream job at age 17: guitarist/ rock 'star', in a full time touring rock band "FXU"

First he refined a 'wall of sound' rock guitar technique in Canadian clubs- covering U2, The Fixx, Tears for Fears, A-Ha, Rush (Limelight/ Big Money)- while developing his own style and sound and evidently moving toward the finger-style Strat-guitar work of the likes of Bruce Cockburn and Mark Knopfler.

Three years of life on the road later, he found himself seduced by the aromas of the saucy world of gastronomy... winning Taste of Canada awards and securing a Red Seal Journey person's Cook certificate.

Multi-talented Wolfe rarely ignored his musical inclinations. His multi-track recorders, guitars, and part time bands were always sputtering messily on the back burners (Astro Groover, Killing Stone, Grandeur, Halogen.05).

His 'official debut' CD as a singer/songwriter was released in Toronto: "11:59" (Nov.2005). Wolfe "pays respectful tribute to...Canadian Icons Neil Young and Bruce Cockburn...elegant guitar playing...truly a one-man band..." [Jane Eamon, Winner 2007 Okanagan music awards folk artist].

Wolfe's songs on 11:59 (a self-biographical reference to his own tendency to bloom late) are cello-infused folk-rock (he played all the instruments) . Other 'sounds like' comparisons: Crowded House, Bright Eyes, Damien Rice, Ben Folds, Sir Paul McCartney.

A proud St. Catharines Ontario native (the same soil that brought us Neil Peart, Ron Sexsmith, Alexisonfire), Dean Wolfe (born Dean Salmela) is married and has 3 boys. He lives on Vancouver Island.
