Dean Johanesen

Through the ‘90s and early ‘00s, Dean Johanesen was a widely acknowledged staple of the songwriting community, fronting indie/alternative-rock outfit The Human Condition. Then, out of nowhere and seemingly overnight, Dean transformed into one of the most respected and enduring “troubadorian” musicians you'll see today. A few of his most heart-stringing compositions still make the set list, but Dean's solo record and shows are primarily comprised of a gypsy style folk music that has uniquely and rightfully become his calling card. We hope you enjoy this interview with another one of our favorite songwriters working today.

His record, A Time And A Place, is an interesting, enjoyable listen — and with the amount of time Dean spends on the road, you might be lucky enough to catch him at a U.S. venue near you. Check out his site: and follow him on all the social & streaming platforms you can.
