Julie's Moon for Marie Curie
His new single – Julie’s Moon – is released (via itunes, download sites) on Fri 10 Mar to coincide with Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal. All proceeds from sales of the single will be donated to the Marie Curie charity.
In September 2015 Dean’s beloved big sister Julie finally lost her battle with cancer. She was 50. Julie was a huge supporter of her brother and his music, always encouraging him, always at his gigs. Written very shortly after her death, Julie’s Moon is one of Dean’s most personal songs, although it was a subject he would have preferred to avoid. But some songs insist on being written, and the final result is lyrically poignant but also characteristically musically memorable. It’s a searingly personal song, an ocean of the heart - a special song for a special girl and a special cause.
