Scott Dean Announces October 27 Release of Full-length Debut,"All Over Again"
"In My Arms" Single At Radio Now Through Dave Smith Promotions
Dallas, Texas (October 21, 2014) - Scott Dean is pleased to announce that ALL OVER AGAIN, the full-length album featuring his fourth radio single "In My Arms,"* is scheduled to be released on October 28, 2014. A collection of nine original songs, a standout remake of the Buddy Alan Owens classic "A Whole Lot of Something" (which received a glowing personal endorsement by Owens),and a Texas-flavored duet of the holiday standard "We Three Kings" (featuring Aubrey England), ALL OVER AGAIN is an expanded version of the six-song EP RE-SHUFFLE (May 2013) and was self-produced by Dean alongside Scott Moody at Abstract Audio in Aubrey, Texas. Dave Smith, who introduced Dean to radio with singles "Hungover All Over Again" and "1234," is spearheading promotional efforts for "In My Arms."
"In My Arms" puts Dean's talents on full display as he aptly moves among the many styles that make up the Texas Country landscape; a contemporary two-steppin' power ballad backed by a plucky mandolin, it's a lyrical story of a young and regretful musician who can't seem to get it right with the girl or the music.
"'In My Arms' was such a fun song to write and record and it is a good introduction to the entire album," stated Dean. "Aubrey Lynn England and Scott Moody added some powerful harmonies in the chorus that really bring the song to life. It's an up-tempo ballad that I think a lot of people can relate with."
Radio Programmers and Industry Insiders have expressed support of "In My Arms" and ALL OVER AGAIN:
"Scott Dean's new single, 'In My Arms,' should be called 'In My Head.' It will have you humming at work and singing in the shower. Scott Dean always has the songs people can't resist dancing to. Remember when people danced to the radio and at LIVE shows? They still do thanks to great music like 'In My Arms'!" ~ Jody Lee, KWBY Cowboy Radio
"Scott Dean delivers on his latest, 'In My Arms'! Not just a great lyrical hook but the music draws you in as well! This should be the single that pushes Scott Dean's career to new heights! Perfect radio song for fall!" ~ JD Rose, PD Rebel Country
"Scott just played Stillwater and drew a huge crowd. This song is the reason why. It's well written and is a fun, upbeat, true life song that many can relate too. Play it and watch the phones blow up!" ~ Jay McRae, KGFY - Cowboy Country Stillwater, OK
"'In My Arms' has a sweet, pleasing melody. The mandolin certainly enhances along with the imagery of the lyrics. I see couples smiling as they twirl around the dance floor on this song." ~ Kim Imber, BadlandsFM - Firehouse Saloon, Houston, TX
"Scott is one of the most refreshing new artists into the Texas Red Dirt scene in quite a while. His frisky songwriting and vocal talent is rising to the level of mastery. His variety is yet to be seen and is beginning to show itself in his latest single 'In My Arms.' His previous single, '1234' is still being heard throughout this regional territory. He's a hard working talent always looking to take it to the next level... just what our future needs!"
Dave Smith, Texas Regional Radio Report
"Scott Dean is a rare talent who is, not only a gifted singer but, a great songwriter and all around musician. One of my favorite songs to date is the single 'In My Arms' - great lyrics, great vocals, and a smooth presentation of what Scott Dean is made of. He's the real deal!"
Scott Moody, Co-Producer (music industry veteran who has played and worked with Leann Rimes, Miranda Lambert, Steve Holy, Charley Pride and others)
"So enjoyed Scott Dean's album ALL OVER AGAIN! He's got a lot of talent and the work ethic to stay in there shows success is coming for him. I am blown away by his remake of 'A Whole Lot of Something'; it is just awesome! I love the arrangement and all the little subtle movements from the musicians but, really love Scott's voice!"
Buddy Alan Owens, Songwriter (son of Buck Owens, stepson of Merle Haggard).
Channeling a love for old school country, like The Flying Burrito Brothers and Jerry Jeff Walker, ALL OVER AGAIN is a modern Texan sound derived from traditional country roots. Meant to back a foot stompin' good time, the album is best described as a "coming of age" musical told from the perspective of a good-time seeking Texan. A celebration of youth set to sweltering fiddle, pedal-steel, electric guitar and driving tempos, this collection of party songs ("Sunday Funday," "When I Drink") throws in a driving ditty ("Down To Galveston") and a few relationship songs ("Baby, Why You Wanna," "A Whole Lot of Something") for good measure.
The effort Dean has exhibited to succeed in the music scene has not gone unnoticed; the Texas House of Representatives recognized Dean's "allegiance to upbeat melodies, high-energy songs, and memorable lyrics" with a State Resolution that reads, "through his musical endeavors, Scott Dean is contributing to the cultural vibrancy of the Lone Star State, and he is indeed deserving of recognition as he embarks on the next exciting chapter of his career."
