Dean Drouillard has maintained a consistent artistic output, producing a half-dozen releases since 1998. His recordings bely a curious and artistic imperative but his compositions remain melodic and approachable. From the mid-fi melancholy of Dust, to the cinematic instrumental vistas of The Bear Lake, Drouillard’s music denotes a restless exploration, refining his sound without redundancy. ... more

Track Name: Today
i woke up today afraid
of being afraid
i can't even close my eyes
everything's on a chain
even the pain
i let it all get too far
don't even know who you are

oh i know
it seems so sudden and i'm
frightened to ask you
do you know
there's a world in a smile
i'm dying to get to

i woke up today in love
with being in love
it follows me everywhere
i can't seem to put your face
away for a day
there's nothing that you could take
that i wouldn't make

there was a dream with her arms held out
and my legs buried underground
and she never could reach
and that's how my day began
Track Name: Never
never should have drove home last night
the news went to my head and held on tight
she'd sat me down, told me everything
and i never need to know where you are

never thought you'd come out on top
there's nothing getting by that lucky smile
'cause you never lose
and i'm right here in the place where i belong

you can drive a thousand miles
never looking back
at everything that made you
what you are
and i can put it all aside
lock it far below
and wait here for the day
you come alive
Track Name: Valentine
from the corner of my eye
you took my breath and held it high
all this could just disappear
if i could only see you here
i'd be satisfied

your every movement, every sound
puts the rest in the background
every careful word you say
i'll carry with me through the day
so you're still around

in just one look
i'm on a hook
Track Name: 4 a.m.
dd - vocals, acoustic guitar, bass, keyboards, tamborine
bryden baird - flugelhorn
Track Name: I'll Wait
you're nothing like me
or i just don't see it yet
you keep it all in its places
so together
while i've got this feeling
like i'm falling apart

don't know how
don't know when
everything changed
when i couldn't wait
to see you again
but i'll wait
i'll wait

you're on mountaintops
while i'm just scared to breathe the air on earth
for what it's worth
i'm making changes
at least in theory
i'm up to the task
Track Name: Dum Do Da
dum do da
dum do da

there you go
Track Name: L.A.
on the ground there are snowflakes
on the ground we don't share
on the ground there are snowflakes

through the air we get closer
through the air there is warm
through the air we get closer

i can't stay
with you
in l.a.

in the sun i can see you
in the water we swim
in the sun i can see you

i just can't stay
with you
here in l.a.
you know
how i go
