Canadian singer | songwriter | musician

Born in Port Colborne Ontario Canada




Niagara Ontario musician Dean Young’s original country music is described as a twist of modern with classic country sounds that carries meaningful messages to listeners about the important things in life. Although Dean's songwriting spans many genres, it's country that continually draws his heart as that was the musical foundation of his youth.

A self-taught musician who was singing at square dances by age 3, he was first introduced to the guitar at a young age by his father Bazil, and started playing drums at age 15. He quickly caught the attention of the local music circuit and was soon playing drums while singing lead and backing with numerous bands in ON such as New York Minute, 21 Plus, White Frost, The Limit, Hotel California, Epic Eagles etc.

Grateful to be able to share his passion and uplift the people who love and appreciate music he’s had the opportunity to tour and perform for audiences from 200 - 60,000 across North America, Japan & Mexico.

Albums D’n’R Unplugged (‘09), Young Country (‘11), Makin’ A Life (‘17), Dirty (Single 2018), and Alibis (Single 2021) Dean's music is heard on stations across North America.
