“Passionate and introspective, Thank Your Friends finds singer/songwriter
Jake Dean tackling a range of feeling with depth and sincerity.
From the bluesy dirge of “Healing Song” to the sunshine-evoking “Newport,” Dean
is not afraid to express his emotions; be them serious or lighthearted. Listeners
will find Dean’s message of living in the present resonating throughout his
material, but if this any indication of what’s to come from this talented
songster, one can’t help but look forward.”
--Albert Vega, writer for Music Connection Los Angeles,CA
"Jake Dean has successfully mixed a Dylan-esque
style of singing with a heartfelt blend of acoustic and electric guitars, all
backed by a solid rhythm section."--Mike Hanley - Event Production Services LLC Austin,TX
"Thank Your Friends by Jake Dean, highlights Jake’s diverse song writing
skills. You can hear a wide range of influences from blues to pop and
rock in this 12 song offering. This release proves Jake has the
ability to put together a full CD of thought provoking songs."
