DEAN JONES' NEW ALBUM
Hello Dog on Fleas fans. A lot has happened since we last updated this website. The Fleas have been working on a new album, and playing shows here and there. And eating lots of fruit!
THE BIGGEST NEWS, however, is that Fleas leader Dean Jones has a new album coming out on July 1st, called "In My Dreams". With an album cover by acclaimed children's book illustrator and author Giselle Potter, and cameos from Frances England, Morgan Taylor (Gustafer Yellowgold), Rachel Loshak, and Michael Napolitano (Michael and the Rockness Monsters), this new CD is tons of fun. Dean played all the instruments, and wrote all the songs. Why did he do that? Because it was winter, and it's fun to sit around in the studio and create new songs. Most of the songs were written during the mild winter on long walks in the wood with Dean's dog Trooper.
Stay tuned for more news on the album. Already Stefan Shepard of Zooglobble has weighed in with some early praise about the CD!
“gently goofy and questioning and will probably lead to some requests for some apples, grapes, or bananas.” ~ Zooglobble
"cute and witty lyrics with a catchy rhythm" ~ Monkey and Mama Show
