Born and raised in Odenton, Maryland, Dean left home at the age of 18 and honed his songwriting skills in a one-room cinderblock shack sans heat and plumbing. Writing both independently and with co-conspirators like Luke Dick and Casey Beathard, Dean developed his sound at regional shows, and eventually found himself sharing stages with the likes of Kane Brown, Jake Owen, and Brothers Osborne. In 2020 he caught the attention of Nashville's Big Machine Records, who added Dean to their roster. Early 2021 saw the release of the single "Wings," ahead of the arrival of his eponymous debut, which was issued later that April. ~ James Christopher Monger
