Armed with her unique perspective, musical integrity and soul-bearing vocals, Kathryn Dean's distinct sound has immense depth and intelligence both lyrically and musically. She delivers an honest performance that tells her unique stories in a way that inspires and impacts the human spirit like a true artist does. "The message of my songs is that it isn't about being perfect. It is about recognizing that every up and down has an equally valuable life lesson. Take a potentially powerless situation and turn defeat into victory", Kathryn says.
It's been an incredible time for Kathryn Dean who has been working hard writing, recording and rehearsing in preparation for her debut release out this year. To bring her creative vision to life Kathryn has teamed up with writers and producers who have worked with Christina Aguilera, Bruce Springsteen, The Mars Volta, and Counting Crows. Her debut EP shipped nationally and dropped to radio September 8th 2014, with the first single - "I'll Show You Crazy".
The exciting music video for the single was directed by Paul Boyd whose many credits include - Goo Goo Dolls, Seal, Celine Dion and Sting.
Beyond writing for her own music releases, Kathryn's songwriting catalogue has been used in films, television and compilations. Her originals have been featured on NBC's coverage of the nationally televised Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular in 2013 and various shows on CBS and MTV. She has been twice selected as a semi-finalist in Reverbnation's Unsigned Only American Song Writing Contest and is an International Acoustic Music Award recipient.
In August 2014 her songs "So Undeniable" and "Told You So" were heard by a television viewing audience that averages about 42 million an episode in Brazil on the night time drama MALHACAO.
When asked about her songwriting Kathryn says, "My songs are a reflection of my own experiences and those around me. Songwriting is very cathartic for me and I hope that my songs are as therapeutic for my listeners."
Upon completion and release of her full length album early 2015, tour dates will commence.
