About the Author:

Dean Friedman wrote his first song at the age of nine, titled, ‘I’d Love to Take a Swim With You in the Summertime’. Since then, he’s enjoyed hit records around the world, including, ‘Ariel’, ‘Lucky Stars’, ‘Lydia’, ‘Woman of Mine’, “Well, Well,” Said the Rocking Chair’ and ‘McDonald’s Girl’, a track covered by Barenaked Ladies, and featured in a national TV/Radio campaign by a certain fast-food hamburger chain. He has composed and produced soundtracks for TV and Film, including ‘Boon’, ‘Eerie Indiana’, ‘Total Panic’, ‘Nick Arcade’ and ‘I Bought a Vampire Motorcycle’, and has won awards for his music videos, ‘I Miss Monica’ and ‘A Terrible Pickle’. His song, ‘Doint, Doint, It’s Just a Little Joint’, won Best Comedy Song at the American Marijuana Music Awards. Friedman is the creator of ‘Eat-a-Bug’, the world’s first VR game for Nickelodeon TV and developed the VR games for Nickelodeon’s classic VR game show, Nick Arcade. His VR game environments and Music Atriums - musical playgrounds for kids – are featured at leading children’s museums and theme parks. Friedman is the author of, ‘Synthesizer Basics’, and producer/host of the popular, New York School of Synthesis ‘Intro to Synthesis’ video series, featured on YouTube. It’s been rumored that Friedman is the anonymous author of ‘A Musician’s Guide to Surviving the Great Recession’ by A. Musician, but we can neither confirm nor deny such a rumor. Dean continues to write, record and tour, and conducts Songwriting Workshops and Masterclasses at universities around the world.
