Dean Madonia Art
I am surprised at how many people I know who didn't realize that I am also a visual artist. Granted, I have promoted myself as a performing songwriter for most of my life, but I have always drawn and painted and created graphics on the computer. This site is to show people the "other thing" that I do... Let me know what you think!
My childhood friend Greg Curvey and I wrote and recorded a CD as "Pretty Little Horses," called "Evergreen. One of our songs made it into the film, "The Stream." Check out the track listing - we are in very good company!
A great progressive site with Mark Ashby featuring interviews and new music on his "Friday Finds." I am on episode 30, May, 2014.

Foodfight! (the movie)
Check out the animated film "Foodfight!" in summer of 2009 and listen for Dean's song "Honor Is Ours."
ASCAP/Murphy's Laws
Ralph Murphy was introduced to me by a mutual friend and has been sort of "the dad I never wanted" since I have been living here. Ralph knows what's going on in Nashville and pretty much anywhere else songs are being written, and he is as candid as they come. I admire candor above all else, so I will always admire this man. He is knowledgeable and helpful, and if you want to know how to write a song, check out his pages.

Scott Avery
Scotty is a great friend and a great writer. Unfortunately, this link is about the best yer gonna get from the boy. He's not interested in self-promotion, he didn't have much to do with this page. His friend Judy Blem couldn't take it anymore, so she programmed something quick for him. Now you can check out photos and a couple songs at least and see where he's playing. Don't just check the listing - go see him - his shows are great and wildly entertaining!

Rivers is a great writer, performer, friend and mentor. He is a gifted songwriter and he has written many country hits.You can catch him once-in-a-while at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, when he isn't on the road opening for a bunch of big artists including Pat Green and Kieth Urban. Keep an eye out for him on the country charts where he spends most of his time and check out his CD "Just Another Coaster," it's great!
Jonathan Kreisberg
Jonathan is a gifted guitarist. We were in a Prog/fusion band called "Third Wish" together for several years. The band released an EP as "Third Wish" and A full length CD as "Wyscan" after a name conflict with another band. The players in the band were all top-notch, but what still stands out on that recording is Jonathan's guitar. Jonathan started playing mostly fusion when that band broke up and then a few years later he moved to NY and began to play his take on straight-ahead jazz. His CD "Nine Stories Wide" is an excellent collection and I always look forward to hearing what this innovative player is up to.

Stevan is a good guy, a great friend and an awesome guitarist. We have been in bands together over the years and he has played on a lot of my recordings (including the solo on Deep Sky's "On the Way Home). Stevan is also a talented screen-writer and he has a music company where he sells tracks for commercials and film. You can check him out here... Get Carter!
Angela Kaset
Angela is a gifted Writer and performer. She has the voice of a wounded angel and has actually gotten me a little misty-eyed during her performances (not so easy to do to a "tough guy" like me). Check out her "Live at the Bluebird." CD. She really sounds like that live!

Rick is an amazing writer and performer (and a damn good cook). He and his wife Deanna are great friends. Rick is a song coach and is writing a book about writing, and Deanna is a piano teacher at Vanderbilt University and also an excellent writer.
