The Artists Rex Fowler and Tom Dean emerged as prominent folk/rock artists in the 1970s. Rexs band, Aztec Two-Step, burst upon the scene with their self-titled debut album on Elektra Records in 1972. This and their three subsequent albums on RCA Records were staples of college and progressive FM radio and helped usher the music of the 1960s into the 70s and beyond. Toms band Devonsquare was signed by Ahmet Ertegun, the legendary Chairman of Atlantic Records, after hearing Deans "Walking On Ice" from their self-released album of the same name. Devonsquare went on to record another CD for Atlantic titled, Bye Bye Route 66, which spawned several critically acclaimed singles includin g "If You Could See Me Now." Collectively they have toured worldwide, been reviewed in Rolling Stone, performed on David Letterman and shared stages with such musical luminaries as Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, and The Band, and continue to distinguish themselves as esteemed song-writers, performers and recording artists in the venerated genre of folk/rock music. The Project Along with several prominent studio musicians, Rex and Tom have teamed up in this labor of love to celebrate the genius and artistry of John Lennon. As a gift to John for his 70th birthday on October 9, 2010, they have re-imagined exquisite acoustic renditions of Lennons legendary Beatles songs - inspired in part by Sir George Martin and Cirque du Soleils masterpiece, LOVE. Besides a smattering of tasteful percussion, Rex and Toms distinctive acoustic guitar and vocal stylings and the beautiful voice of Alana MacDonald, featured instrumentation include cello, violin, mandolin, mandola, bass, slide guitar, accordion and chromatic harmonica. Happy Birthday John!
