Dean is an American singer-songwriter who plays piano, keyboard, guitar and other instruments, including the harmonica. 

Dean has had multiple successes in the singles and album charts outside his home country proving his international status and he continues to write, record and tour.
Dean received his first guitar when he was 9, in 1964, and started writing songs. When he was a teenager, he played weddings and bar mitzvahs as part of Marsha and the Self-Portraits, sent out demos and majored in music at City College of New York where one of his teachers was guitarist David Bromberg.  By the time he was 20, in 1975, he had a manager and a recording contract with Cashman and West’s Lifesong label.
In the United States he is largely remembered for his 1977 hit song “Ariel” which reached # 26 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and stayed in the chart for five months. “Ariel” has been described as a “quirkily irresistible and uncategorizable pop song about a free spirited, music loving, vegetarian Jewish girl”, from Paramus, New Jersey, where Dean grew up.
But in truth there is much more to Dean than this as he is responsible for many many classic songs and the outstanding album “Well Well Said The Rocking Chair” from 1978 and now his latest release American Lullaby is also receiving substantial critical acclaim.
