"As a songwriter, performer for nearly forty years, I have watched the ebb and flow of life as a writer, the past 28 years in the most magnificent songwriters town in the world, NASHVILLE TN. But even the greatest places in the world for songwriting, still can often be drowned out by life around us. The Internet, cell phones, the bluster of every day life. Songwriters are hard pressed to find a "home" for their music and their souls.
I had the honor of playing on one of Jeremy Dean's recent shows, and I was overwhelmed by the vibe of that place. Our show, which featured the wonderful, Doc Holladay whose writing, singing and guitar slinging skills were something to behold, matched perfectly with Jeremy Dean, who is treasure of Nashville. Was a great night and the crowd, respectful and grateful, along with the staff, who put the "cherry on the top" of a perfect evening.
Anyone who wants to see Nashville songwriting in it's purest form, should check out this oasis of sonic expression on one of those magic nights. You'll thank me." - Marc-Alan Barnette

Layne Rogers - Merridee's Breadbasket, Franklin, TN
"The Songwriter Feature Series has consistently been one of the most exciting and best attended nights of music we have at Merridee's. Jeremy Dean represents the very best of what Nashville has to offer. On a musical level, he's a professional act with great songs and a great sound, but more than that, I love the variety and quality he brings every time he puts together a show. Jeremy is a class act with a deep well of connections to some of the best and brightest singers and songwriters in Music City. Not only would I recommend working with him every chance you get, I recommend sticking close to him because he is the kind of guy that brings out the best in everyone he comes in contact with, and you can't help but succeed with Jeremy Dean by your side."
