Texas based recording artist Summer Dean is as authentic as they come. The acclaimed singer-songwriter owns the stage from the moment she struts into the spotlight, captivating audiences across the country with her sly wit, Southern charm and soulful songcraft. Night after night, her down-home dynamism illustrates exactly why she’s a highly sought after artist and opener for the likes of Marty Stuart, Asleep at the Wheel, Colter Wall, Charley Crockett and Mike and the Moonpies.
The seventh generation Texan’s roots run deep and proud — not only in the Lone Star soil, but also in the grand tradition of the state’s sonic storytellers, timeless talents like Willie Nelson, Robert Earl Keen or Kris Kristofferson and now easily takes her place alongside them. Dean is scheduled to release her third album, The Biggest Life, produced by Bruce Robison and Next Waltz records in summer of 2023.
