True Arkansas talent at Brews

122

Jesse Dean was born and raised in Winslow, Ark., surrounded by pianos, stringed instruments of all variety and a tin roof for percussion. The music bug bit him early and he’s spent years honing his craft in small venues and festivals with Left of Center, a bluesy rock band that he fronts. With the January 2017 release of his second solo CD, Arkansas Amplifier, he has stepped up his game with a superb collection of blues-rock originals that are enchanting. A recent review compared the album experience to Dark Side of The Moon and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and after listening I have to agree that Dean has created a southern blues/rock stunner. You can see this Arkansas original at Brews on Friday from 7-10 p.m.
