Welcome back to another stellar edition of Pop Culture Pipe Bomb’s Fresh Music Friday. This week we are changing it up a bit and going Country, Australian Style with this weeks FMF Featured Artist Dean Perrett!
Perrett is an Australian Bush Ballad Singer-songwriter, with an authentic traditional Australian country sound. When he is not writing, he is working the family cattle property “Bowenfels” where he was raised, and it is clear that country runs deep in his soul.
Perrett is not new to the game with over 25 years in the industry where he has forged a name for himself and has earned his place as one of Austraila’s favourite Bush Balladeers and leading traditional Country Artist and has an impressive 3 Golden Guitars under his belt. There is an old saying
” Write and sing what you know.”
