“Stunning Musicianship” - Hot Press, "Songsmith Extraordinaire!" - Music Week , "An Amazing Talent" - The Sun, "An American Classic" - Tribune, “The Soundtrack of Our Lives” – NY Times, are just of few of the superlatives used to describe Friedman's powerfully unique and original talent.
 Friedman’s recent run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival garnered similar critical praise:

Despite Friedman's apparent absence from the popular music scene, evidence that his name and music have made a lasting impact on pop music can be found repeatedly in popular media: The British band Half Man Half Biscuit released a best selling EP containing the oddly titled, The Bastard Son of Dean Friedman. (Dean emphatically denies this claim.) Friedman extracts his revenge on his CD, Submarine Races with his song, A Baker's Tale, the hitherto untold story of Nigel Blackwell's dubious origins. With his influence evident in the music of contemporary bands like Barenaked Ladies, the Blenders and Ben Folds Five, Friedman states, ‘It’s nice to see my music has made an impact on a new generation of artists.’

Friedman  also produced and presented BBC Radio Scotland’s acclaimed radio series, ‘Real American Folk’, which has featured American Folk icons such as Christine Lavin, David Bromberg, John Prine and Steve Forbert.
One of Friedman's recent tours was almost cancelled when it was announced that his tour sponsor www.goldenseeds.co.uk would distribute packets of cannabis seeds to the first ten people that purchased CD's at each of Friedman's gigs. The controversy was only resolved after Friedman promised not to distribute the seeds within 50 yards of the venue premises. (click to see Songwriter's Cannabis Controversy). [note: it is legal to possess cannabis seeds in the UK 
Friedman’s latest CD, 'American Lullaby', has been receiving rave reviews from fans and critics, alike. The long awaited, fan-funded, studio album contains 12 brand new original tracks, lyrical soundscapes and story-songs, bursting with life, love and survival in a surreal world. It contains instant classics like, 'American Lullaby', 'Halfway Normal World', 'The Russians Are Coming!', 'Too Much Stuff', 'Welcome to Stupid Town', 'On a Summer's Night', and more. This stunning recording further confirms Friedman’s status as one of the finest songwriters of his generation.
Friedman, 68, makes his home in Peekskill, NY where he lives with his wife, Alison, and Lola, the smallest dog in the world.
