"Catchin' Waves is happy to be working for and supporting, Dean Young. As radio promoters, it's a no-brainer as to why we are working with Dean and why we are supporting his single, Whether.
The song sounds so good and the lyrics will have you invested. Dean's voice is distinct and soothing. Dean has what we call, a radio-friendly voice. His tone and delivery are inviting. If we like it, we know others will too. Dean's music is a great example of what we look for in a radio single. As an artist, he runs his music business with passion and dedication that is seen and felt. "

DEAN YOUNG - IN THE COUNTRY with DAVE WOODS
A wonderful interview by Dave Woods with Dean Young. Dave is a songwriter and monthly columnist for the CMAO Newsletter as well as having studied radio broadcasting at Centennial College in Ontario and working on-air at a Country station in Northern Ontario for over 10 years.

CANADIAN BEATS Album Review by Dutch Bickell
Dean Young has released his latest studio album, Makin’ a Life. With his neotraditional country sound, and soulful twang Young adds another chapter into his musical career with Makin’ a Life and continues to carry on his country music craft. The eight song album contains some hard hitting country tracks including the singles, “Carnival Ride” and “Tennessee Honey.” Released across all major music retailers, Makin’ a Life is sure fire addition to round out your summer 2017 album collection.
From humble beginnings and lots of hard labor, Young has fought hard and fought long to launch his musical career. Through it all the one thing Young maintained was his love for country and his natural ability to create and perform quality music. Makin’ a Life showcases Young’s talent and displays it proudly in the form of a great country album.
