Dean Stevens and Friends: Concert Celebration of Dean's Sixth CD, "Arise!"
For decades, Dean Stevens has
delighted audiences of all ages throughout Roslindale and
Americas. An exuberant performer of distinctive
style and wit, he combines an intricate, self-taught
guitar style with a versatile and expressive
singing voice. He has established himself as
a formidable creator and interpreter of a
wide spectrum of songs in English and Spanish.
His own material explores a variety of personal
and social topics, paints sketches of people and
places, celebrates the Earth, and
annoys the narrow minded.
Born and raised in Costa Rica, Dean Stevens
is a lifelong student of Latin America. He
learned Spanish at an early age, and readily
absorbed the musical and topical influences
of the region. He travels frequently to
Central America, and has become known
for his humanitarian efforts on behalf of
refugees returning to their homes
in El Salvador and Guatemala.
Dean Stevens has six highly acclaimed
recordings to his credit. His brand new release,
"Arise!"" (Volcano Records),
is a collection of songs in English and Spanish,
with guest appearances by Ritt Henn, Kevin Barry, Cindy Kallet, Grey Larsen, Eric Kilburn, Randy Sabien, Rob Flax, David Dodson, and too many others to name here....
"Dean Stevens; remember that name; we'll be hearing a lot more from him. Deans Stevens will inspire you. Great voice!!
"Seeing and hearing Dean Stevens live on stage is proof that sanity,
literacy, love, hope, and the forces of good are still alive and well
and at work in the universe. Every song is offered with immediacy,
humanity, and humor underscored by the most articulate and inspired
guitar work you'll hear anywhere on the topical folk circuit. His
powerful anthem to natural cycles, Salmon, and well-chosen covers,
particularly David Dodson's brilliant indictment of our fossil fuel
addiction, Gasoline, will convince you that you are in the presence of a
thinking and compassionate master communicator at the peak of his
powers. Losing your faith? Go to a Dean Stevens concert!"
