Born in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Colby Dean comes from the honest roots of Western Montana. He picked up guitar at age 13, and instantly began composing original material. Dean recorded his first songs with a single microphone, and distributed the copies to schoolmates (and their mothers). During the early days, Dean learned guitar, bass, drums, banjo, ukulele, mandolin, and more.
New Zealand-based indie folk duo, Lhasa, are the result of two completely different worlds colliding. One from a sleepy, small city in New Zealand, while the other grew up in one of the biggest cities in China. The duo come together as a marriage of different cultures, backgrounds, and experiences to create something unique, punchy, and eager to be heard.

Most of my songwriting years have been for my own personal edification. But more than that. Music is a very powerful fragrance and for some it can become an obsession. This was for true me. In the early days I wrote a song titled Pioneer. An artist of years past, Terry Williams of the First Edition, heard my song and wanted to see a live performance of my trio. So, the three of us drove down to Miami and played for Terry, Kenny Rogers and his band in a hotel room near their Venue. Shortly after that I found myself playing in a country rock band with Kenny’s nephew Danny Rogers.
