Dean McMullen is, on one level, a new singer-songwriter who’s soon to release his debut album, ‘Part One’ on Fierce Panda Records. By the sounds of things he won’t be charging into the release like an enraged bull in an especially fragile china shop, as the album gently resonates with a childlike sweetness wrapped in lush musical sentiments, lurking somewhere between Elliot Smith and Mercury Rev.

On a second level, the name Dean McMullen might not resonate instantly with the gig-going masses, but the man has deftly clocked up enough motorway miles to flabbergast the average AA man. Raised on a steady diet of punk rock in Exeter – local heroes The Computers were a special teenage kicking delight – and now based in the Netherlands, his is a tale of incessant gigging as guitarist in oft-loved Muncie Girls interspersed with the odd stint on the slightly more salubrious tour bus circuit as tech for the likes of Tim Burgess, Baxter Dury and SYML.

 
 

Little wonder then that ‘Part One’ should shimmer and twinkle so coyly, for here is a man stepping out of
the shadows of the shadows and putting his supercool soul squarely on the line. Or, as Dean McMullen freely confesses…

Carefully produced by Gethin Pearson (Kele Bloc Party, ALMA, whenyoung) with Simon Dobson (Bring Me The Horizon, Parallax Orchestra) on the arrangements it’s a triumphant collection of sweeping melodies and swooping strings – one part pure ‘Snowman & The Snowdog’ escapism, three parts road-tripping reality. It’s a good balance in an off-balance world, and it’s an album which is due out in the summer of 2022.

 
 


Completing the line up,
Swedish singer, fingerstyle guitarist, and songwriter Jennie Ståbis brings an ethereal start the the evening with some deft songwriting and wonderful acoustic guitar and vocal work.
