Dean Friedman - Songs for Grownups
Sweet Grassmarket, Edinburgh.
Dean Friedman first delighted UK audiences with his chart-topping hit, Lucky Stars. The now classic single, paved the way for a slew of hits off Friedman's critically acclaimed album, "Well, Well" Said the Rocking Chair", including familiar tracks, Lydia, Rocking Chair, Woman of Mine, McDonald’s Girl and Ariel. In a very short time, Friedman had achieved legendary, pop-icon status and was acknowledged, by critics and fans alike, as one of the finest singer/songwriters of his generation.
Here’s what critics have to say:
"Songsmith extraordinaire!” - Music Week; “The soundtrack of our lives!” – New York Times; "Absolutely Fabulous!" – Hot Press; “Pop troubadour of choice!” Scotsman, "An amazing Talent!" – Sun; "Outstanding!" - Record Business; “Dean Friedman is entirely unique and utterly brilliant” – ThreeWeeks
Pursuing his career as a truly independent artist (his albums are financed, not by a major label, but directly by his fans via his website, www.deanfriedman.com ), Friedman has earned a loyal, international following with his insightful and compelling, true-to-life ‘story songs’. Songs like ‘Saturday Fathers’, ‘Jennifer’s Baby’, ‘Where Have All the Angels Flown?’, ‘Under the Weather’ and ‘It’s My Job’, have prompted enthusiastic audiences to proclaim his songs as ‘the soundtrack to their lives’, dealing as they do with family, friends, neighbors, work and the seemingly trivial, yet ultimately compelling, stuff of everyday life.
Friedman will be performing songs from throughout his four-decade career, including familiar, radio hits and fan favorites. Invite family and friends and join Friedman for an evening of powerful, poignant and hilarious songs about the ordinary and extraordinary lives we share.
