Artist / Producer
Andrew Dean - "Be happy with who you are, and walk in the light of God".
With strong vocals and country roots, this genuine good guy is soon to become your favorite country and Gospel singer. Based in Pigeon Forge, TN and Toledo, OH this young, high-energy entertainer really relates to his audience. Andrew Dean draws strength from his faith in God in his songs. "This is part of my roots and who I am," he said. "I feel very blessed to be able to do what I love to do."
Management - Black Hat Productions
"We were ready to find some really good new songs for Andrew Dean to record. His ability to reach highs and lows with his 4 ½ octave range was taken into consideration when selecting songs for him. We feel it is only a matter of time before he becomes very big in the music industry, and it takes the right songs to allow that to happen. Teaming up with these songwriters, and a great Rhonnie Scheuerman song, Andrew is singing at his best. The time is right for this country and Gospel singer, who has a lot of heart and soul. Get to know him soon."
