Who is Dean?

MAD BAD AND DANGEROUS TO KNOW, WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS A PARADOX, A CONTRADICTION IN TERMS, AN ICONOCLAST AND A ROCK AND ROLL STATE OF BEING!

Dean Walker comes from the notoriously tough and uncompromising streets of Huyton in Liverpool - known locally as 2DOGS – an area that produces people of great ambition and immense talent, but with that extra special spark that defines them from the rest. The same streets that have given football Steven Gerrard, have given music Dean Walker, those very streets are the roots behind his music. Dean is no stranger to controversy, he was stabbed in the throat and nearly killed in a fight at the age of 13, knows what the inside of a police cell looks like and after three separate attempts of trying to break the world record for consuming Tequila, in the process sacrificing his pancreas, he knows what intensive care is all about, even his debut video ‘Cliché’ was banned! “It’s in his genes if you know what I mean” his recent ancestors include a world champion boxer, 3 Italian tenors and a UK serial killer.

“Another wonderful thing to come out of Liverpool. ‘Beautiful’ is a veritable tour de force - rock classic in the making which the punters adored. Technologically challenging and bristling with intent. You can tell this guy oozes attitude and rock n roll from every pore. Super cult status is assured, Dangerous as f*ck, Great”

As well as performing Rock Dean’s vocal range allows him to sing opera and jazz. He sang the aria ‘Nessun Dorma’ at Liverpool football Club’s Anfield Stadium in England, at the memorial for the Hillsborough Tragedy, where Dean was present when 96 Liverpool football fans were killed, many from his home town of Huyton, Dean’s involvement in the disaster inspired him to write the beautifully moving song ‘Remember Us 3:14’. Dean’s vocal coach at the time, Tona DeBrett, was encouraging Dean to record a full operatic album. He has also been known to perform an impromptu jazz set of classic Nina Simone songs, Nina being one of his favourite performers. Dean’s groundbreaking production work on tracks like ‘Beautiful’, ‘Cliché’ and ‘Inside’ co-produced, in his rehearsal room in Liverpool, with Max Hayes (Primal Scream, Oasis, Paul Weller) has influenced many, been copied by a few but equalled by none.

“Bombastic – Punk- Industrial – Disco – rock! Cliché is a fucking Legend! Kinda slinks in, f*cks yer girlfriend and leaves with a smirk. Cliché is a great sound. GENIUS.”

“Fast drum n bass beats with Soundgarden-style riffs to trance.
Eclectic music poles apart but fused together in such a way that it works.”

Dean has been offered many film roles but played in only two, one being about the life of the young John Lennon by NBC America.

Dean has many of his tracks licensed to Red Bull and Target amongst others. Cliché is used extensively across the globe on Red Bull’s groundbreaking ‘Air Challenge’. He has gained syndicated airplay from both ‘Indie103.1’ in LA and ‘Mancow’ in Chicago. In his spare time he has an ad and modelling contract with NTA Talent, he featured in Marie Claire Magazine, is a regular guest on World Soccer Daily, a syndicated football talk show. His diary of life on the road has been serialised in several magazines and has been described as comparable to Jacques Kerouac. His artwork including the video for ‘Cliché’, has received great critical acclaim achieving number one spot on many independent film sites on the web. Amongst Dean’s many admirers is Michael C Gross legendary Hollywood producer and director of the blockbuster movie ‘Ghostbusters’, art director of Esquire and John Lennon’s personal designer, is featuring Dean’s work on his website.

Dean has been offered many film roles but played in only two, one being about the life of the young John Lennon by NBC America, whose executive producer Michael O’Hara said “I have auditioned thousands of young men in my time, Dean is the most charismatic of them all”

“This guy reminds me of the Beatles around the white album, with more riffs and hooks than a roll of barbed wire and as fucking cutting.”

So in a nutshell there you have it. In an age of manufactured pop, reality TV and all the other vehicles for the ‘15 minutes of fame’ junkies, here’s the real deal, a modern day British rock star, with bags of charisma who writes, produces, sings and performs with an attitude that screams of both anger and arrogance, yet in his search for truth and justice through his words and deeds, pulls at a deeper kind of emotion, an independent, a real punk in the true sense of the word. Dean has toured extensively throughout the world learning his trade, playing solo as well as performing with his band, alongside some of the biggest rock acts ever, to packed houses, gaining their praise and approval.

“He is every act you have ever liked rolled into one dynamic personality”.
