Fayetteville local Keefer Dean Roach will be performing singer/songwriter, rock, blues, country, and songs from his album Apocalyptic Happiness.
Jesse Dean was born and raised in a green, rocky hollow a few miles from Winslow, Arkansas, in a house with a piano for every room, walls hung with guitars and banjos, and a tin roof for rainy-day percussion. His skill as a musician is homegrown. He got an early start, picking out tunes on the piano and mandolin as a toddler, and soon had the makings of a one-man band — strings, drums, keys, vocals and the will to walk a long way. He learned by ear, brought up on bluegrass, gospel, soul, blues and rock, and the skill and stylings of his musician father, Keith Yingling.
Jesse Dean’s blues-rock originals showcase soulful bass lines, muscular lead and rhythm guitar, vibrating riffs and sultry jams. His sound reflects a blend influences from Mark Knopfler and Gary Rossington to Bonnie Raitt, Warren Haynes and Cake. His are edgy songs of the South, smooth and blue with the sounds of the delta and richly electric with rough-hewn southern rock played solid and clean.
