About Me / EPK

A life lived in fear, is a life lived with chains worn round the neck and weights about the ankles for every step”
Kent Dean

Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, but spending the majority of his childhood on a farm in Northern Wisconsin, Kent Dean is one of 11 children born to Rynold and Deborah Dean. He is a professionally trained actor, classically trained pianist, and ardent fan of coffee, languages, and playing sports.

He has acted and performed all across the country from Disneyland, LA to Midwest stages in Minneapolis, Duluth, Wisconsin and currently has found his home in and works out of Nashville, TN.

While his songs and vocal style have been compared to such legends as Elvis Presley, Freddie Mercury, Elton John, and Mumford and Sons. He draws inspiration from more than a century of musical history including Andy Williams, Dean Martin, and Frank Sinatra, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, to The Script, Imagine Dragons, and OneRepublic.
