Dean Friedman, is best known for his top-20, pop-hit classic, “Ariel,” #1 requested song on WNEW-FM and the ultimate suburban ode to a pot-smoking, vegetarian, Jewish girl in a peasant blouse, who lives “Way on the other side of the Hudson, deep in the bosom of suburbia.” Other hits include “Lucky Stars,” “Lydia,” and his chart-topping hit, “McDonald’s Girl,” covered by Barenaked Ladies. Dean’s music has been heard in soundtracks for TV and film, including “A Million Matzoh Balls” from the critically acclaimed, cult film, “Lemon.”

Dean's latest album, “American Lullaby” has received rave reviews as a prescient, poignant and powerful documentation of our present day turmoil - a musical time-capsule of the current era - delivering compelling story-songs filled with a powerful mix of poetic insight and wry humor. The long awaited, fan-funded, studio album contains 12 brand new original tracks, lyrical soundscapes and story-songs, bursting with life, love and survival in a surreal world. The album’s instant classics include “American Lullaby.” “Halfway Normal World,” “The Russians Are Coming!,” “Too Much Stuff,” “New Lang Syne,” “I Wish You Joy,”…. This stunning recording further confirms Friedman’s status as one of the finest songwriters of his generation.
