Summer Dean knows the value of unvarnished truth. How paths not taken can yield both happiness and heartache. How life doesn’t care about labels. That candor is palpable in every syllable and sound of the acclaimed singer-songwriter’s new record, The Biggest Life, a profound, vivid document of a songwriter cementing her place among the top rank of Texas tunesmiths.
Dean has been steadily gaining momentum since the release of her break-out 2021 LP Bad Romantic. Critics hailed Romantic, with Texas Monthly saying Dean showed “deft skill at disarming listeners with her vulnerability,” while the Boot said Dean “spins vibrant tales of her blue-collar life, turning life’s ordinary moments into extraordinary ones.” Dean was also just named the 2023 Ameripolitan Honky Tonk Female of the Year, and has performed with an array of country aces, including Colter Wall, Marty Stuart, Asleep at the Wheel, Hayes Carll, Mike and the Moonpies and Charley Crockett.
Tour support comes from Ags Connolly a traditional country artist from Oxfordshire, England, widely considered to be one of the best country singer-songwriters ever to emerge from the UK. Songwriting legend Tom Russell describes his music as “killer”.
