Singer/songwriter and recording artist Drew Dean is back on the music scene with a brand new album entitled “Vibrations”. Vibrations is an eclectic mix of R&B/Soul, Afrobeats and Reggae and could be dubbed as “Tropical Soul”. It is filled with songs for various occasions and covers themes of love, hope and inspiration.
Drew Dean (full name Andrew Dean Williams) was born in St. Kitts with Nevisian and Jamaican heritage. He has lived and performed in many Caribbean islands. He briefly attended Berklee College of Music in Boston and has been releasing music professionally since 2009. Drew has collaborated with groups and artists such as the Acappella Fellas, Sultry Sounds (Virgin Islands), Joss Stone, and more recently, he could be heard on the “We Got This” Caribbean collab produced by the Water Street Boyz out of Barbados. A full bio can be found on www.drewdean.comAlthough Drew has released many singles and EPs in the past, “Vibrations” is his first full length album. The idea to produce “Vibrations” came during the brunt of Covid-19 in early 2020. There was and still is so much depression and uncertainty around that I wanted to create music that lifts people’s spirits, while incorporating a distinct Island/Caribbean vibe. It’s a feel good album.
There are 10 songs on the album with collaborations on 5, coming from Infamus (St. Kitts), Jeremy Vanterpool on Saxophone (Virgin Islands), Duff Cosmic (USA), Venelle Powell (Nevis) and C.Z.B (Nevis). Credit must also be given to Steve D. Whittaker (St. Kitts) who co-wrote “Braveheart”.
There are various producers on the album, ranging from different locations. Layird Music (Florida), Alann Ulises (Mexico), Sinky Beatz (Spain), BeatzbyDB and Ransom (UK). Mixing and mastering was done by Drew Dean.
