Making a Scene Brings you an interview with Dean Mueller
A professional musician for nearly 20 years, Dean Mueller has worked as a performer, producer, promoter, recording engineer and teacher. Now he begins a new phase of his career with Sky Fallin’, his solo album debut.
The bassist-turned-singer-songwriter recorded his album of original Americana songs in Nashville with producer-pianist Kevin McKendree and members of John Prine’s band. Mueller recorded the album with the goal of creating “a cross between John Prine and Tom Petty.”
Mueller’s extensive previous performing and recording experience includes the Duffy Bishop Band, Blues Music Awards-nominated Insomniacs and the award-winning Julie Amici Band. As a promoter and producer, he staged more than 400 performances in the past decade, including tributes to Patsy Cline, Nina Simone and his favorite singer-songwriter, the late John Prine.
“Every song on my album has meaning and inspiration behind it,” Mueller says. “I just want to be real and authentic”
