"truly worthy of a listen"
GREG DEAN
These Pages, This Story
(self-produced)

I would probably know a lot more about Greg Dean if my primitive computing device could load his really modern, uber-cool website. Since I cannot, I will have to describe him to you using only his music -- an entertaining parlor trick I have developed over the years.

A good friend of mine once told me that anyone in any band can be noisy and entertaining, but to sound good when quiet, that takes talent. Another one told me it takes guts to use your real name instead of hiding behind witty band banter. I think Greg Dean does indeed have a unique sound as well as look. He somehow reminds me of Johnny Depp's cousin.

Dean's voice is smooth and relaxed, as natural as singing is to a bird. He works uncommon tunes and ideas into a genre of music that is all too populated by average singer/songwriters that spend more time tuning guitars that making decent music. Dean's CD, These Pages, This Story, is the first such album I have managed to sit through in ages. What's more, I actually enjoyed it. "Freedom From What You Desire" is not really what you want listening to this song. You'll want to keep listening to it, which is kind of contradictory to what the title states.

Dean sings about love in a way that does not make me cringe. In an industry of "ooh, baby, let's do it, I love you," etcetera etcetera, Dean pulls off an anthology of songs about love that are truly worthy of a listen.
