Music, Sound & Stories
Jack Dean & Company are a band and artist collective from the wilds of Devon. Their music is a magpie's nest of folk, indie, hip-hop, post-rock and midwest emo. This diverse musical palette forms a backdrop to a mesmeric lyrical opus by award-winning neurodivergent writer and composer Jack Dean, with narrative tying together the old and the new, mythology and pop culture, anarchist theory and living with a super wonky brain. They take the Western Canon and shoot it at the window of your house. Their 2022 concept album and live show Hero & Leander toured the UK extensively, including performances at the South Bank Centre and Beautiful Days. Their newest album, Tiny Violins, is due to be released in March 2024. They also create the historical non-fiction podcast Fogland Lighthouse.
"It is huge fun, accessible, varied, energetic and touching, telling an oft-told, ancient story with passion and honesty. "
