A long-time veteran of the music scene, Dean Richard began his career by spending 17 years playing full-time on the small club circuit, doing as many as 250 shows per year. Those years of experience show in the depth of the songs and the musicianship of the recordings that he continues to write and record. He honed his engineering and producer chops during that period, when he also had a home-based recording studio that churned out several local hit songs in his home town of Madison, WI in the 80’s and 90’s. After a long hiatus to focus on fatherhood and being a parent to his two sons, eight years ago Dean began playing in the Milwaukee band Incognito, which he did for five years. Since then he has played harmonica, guitar, and sang in the Milwaukee band ‘The Booze Brothers’ as well as working on his solo projects. “Blood and Beer and Poetry” is the first CD to come out of those solo efforts.
