The WDVX Blue Plate Special – 5/27 – Dani-Rae Clark / Dean Batten
May 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Dean Batten is a master in the making. He’s been writing songs since age thirteen and recording himself in some form or another since 2013. After the breakup of the last band he was in, Dean set out in 2015 on his own to discover and fulfill the fullness of his artistic calling. This has led to three EP’s, three albums and a string of singles; and he isn’t stopping there.
Combining his singular wit with the nuance, care and insight of a much older poet, Dean balances the two extremes of feet-on-the-ground and head-in-the-clouds to produce a music all his own.
Notes on a Crisis from Dani-Rae Clark is a small collection of songs about loss, mourning, fear and prayer in the ongoing fentanyl crisis. It is an offering to anyone wrapped up or touched by this collective trauma. It is for everyone we have lost. May you be heard. It is for anyone who has lost. May you be held.
