Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Dean Batten. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I really liked his music.
The music of this artist is very intimate and personal.
The recording and the vocal interpretation immediately made me think that I was in front of a great singer-songwriter.
A warm and deep voice that tells stories that you follow very carefully and you can’t get away until the song is over because you want to know how it ends.
In some moments the compositional style of Dean Batten reminded me of Tracy Chapman with these crepuscular melodies that speak directly to the heart and soul of the listener.
The production is excellent for the genre, simple and essential and the mix in particular leaves the right space for each sound element and the song breathes well.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Would You Like To Come In? is Dean Batten’s Single Out Now!
Intimate and Sweet!
Often genre-bending, thought provoking and emotion stoking, Dean Batten’s music is most concretely one thing: captivating. His simple purpose is “to sing and say honestly”. His new single “Would You Like To Come In?” releases October 1st, 2021; a finger-picked ballad about drugs, nightmares and falling in love. Aries, his most recent album (March 3, 2021) details his own experience with overcoming depression and his rebirth into a better life. Dean Batten gives a passionate, full-bodied performance to his art that touches the shared humanity in all of us.
