Canadian Coast To Coast is presented by Melody Motors in Melfort.
My Special Guest today is Dean Young .
Dean Young is a Canadian country singer songwriter from Ontario. Raised in a musical family he was even showcasing his talents at square dances by the age of three. Although Dean’s father had him learning guitar at a very young age, by the age of 15 Dean’s interest in musical instruments turned to playing the drums. He quickly caught the attention of the local music circuit and was soon playing drums while singing, both backing and lead, with numerous bands in Ontario.
Dean held a factory job for over 22 years while maintaining his musical interests on into adulthood. It wasn’t until more recent years that he took the initiative to leave the steady factory job to focus solely on his music; a move that made him step outside his comfort zone in providing for his young family.
Dean will be on the show today to talk about his new tune “Last Man Standing”, working with Jason Barry, songwriting and lots more.
