Host and executive producer  Rich Reardin interviews New York based singer/songwriter Dean Batstone. Born in Newfoundland, Canada, Dean grew up in Ottawa and still maintains a home near there, though still travels widely in the US and Canada. With 5 C.D.'s currently released, and 2 earlier vinyl records long out of print, he has an impressive legacy of original material. His strong lyrical style yields believable stories, honest emotions and a depth of understanding of the human spirit. His fluid sense of melody coupled with a sincere and powerful delivery has earned him respect and backing from an impressive array of musical friends, including guitarist Jim Weider (The Band, Los Lobos, Bob Dylan) drummer Gary Burke (Bob Dylan, Shania Twain, Joe Jackson), bassist Hugh MacDonald ( Bon Jovi, Cher, Alice Cooper). guitarist John Platania (Van Morrison, Don MacLean, Nathalie Merchant), keyboardist Jason Crosby (Toa Seeger, Art Garfunkel) and famed "Le Studio" Morin Heights engineer Simon Pressey (Rush, Shania Twain, Celine Dion, The Tea Party).

Topics discussed include:
Finishing his record "Lonely In America", early musical memories, growing up in Newfoundland, Canada, moving to New York's Hudson Valley, doing Canadian Folk Festivals, hooking up with Gary Burke who produced his first records in the U.S., working with Jim Wieder, John Platania, and recording at The Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, New York.

Musical selections include:
Northern Eyes, Lonely In America, Lay Me Down, No Victims Here, She Takes Her Time, She Shines Through Me, We Will Not Be Broken, When Caley Cries.

Lonely In America

A great interview with Canadian singer/songwriter Dean Batstone. His new CD Lonely In America is really a dynamic collaborative work of art with some of the music industry's best-two thumbs up for sure. It's always interesting to hear what inspires the artist to pen great songs. He's also the first professional musician I've heard say that sometimes it's the melody of a song that catches your attention and makes it great not necessarily the lyrics-now that is having your finger on the mark..:)
