After earning a solo in his hometown elementary school recital back in 2002, Dean quickly fell in love with the stage and began hitting local and regional shows across the midwest with his mom and granny by his side. Since then, Dean has spent the years developing his brand as an independent artist and cultivating his own unique sound. With deep roots buried in a mix of country, gospel and traditional pop, Dean finds inspiration from some of his biggest idols including Frank Sinatra, Brandi Carlile and Dolly Parton.


Chicago-based singer/songwriter Sara Van Hecke started writing and performing her own songs at the age of 13. Drawing her musical inspiration from jazz and folk artists, she accompanies her voice on guitar and piano. Now 23, Sara just released her latest tunes, “Melrose Street Sessions, ” now available on all major streaming platforms. Passionate about social justice, travel, and community, Sara writes music that often share stories about connecting people to one another. Look out for the second half of her EP “Melrose Street Sessions” in the coming months!
