Dean Smith cut his teeth transcribing and emulating some of the best musicians and songwriters this century has offered. That experience and knowledge greatly influenced his original music which features an eclectic combination of genres that is quickly embraced and satisfying to the most diverse listening audience. His debut CD "Origin of the Wind", released in 1994, stimulated interest in the international market. His second CD album, "The Dusting", further affirmed his songwriting capabilities. His third, "Marionettes" , is certainly the result of a seasoned songwriter who has honed his craft to perfection. Dean is a regular performer in the east coast area, a BMI affiliated publisher, as well as " INDEPENDENT MUSICIAN and proud of it". Dean is available for all styles of songwriting and music instruction, performance venues, and experienced in all phases of recording projects.
