Recently, Dean has had the pleasure of working on a couple of amazing albums…
Producer and bassist to this outstanding album:
Sean Riley & the Water - Stone Cold Hands
Contributed the electric bass tracks to this fine record:
Billboard's #2 US Blues album, Ghalia Volt - Shout Sister Shout!
DEAN ZUCCHERO - ELECTRIC CHURCH FOR THE SPIRITUALLY MISGUIDED
#1 SELLING BLUES ALBUM IN THE NATION ON THE BILLBOARD MUSIC CHART!
Many thanks to the Pugnacious Promo team, to all the blues folks who spent their precious dime on the record, and most of all to the outstanding band of musicians who helped make this happen!
New Video for “AMERICAN DREAM” - the latest single from Dean's upcoming album ELECTRIC CHURCH FOR THE SPIRITUALLY MISGUIDED, available now for pre-order!
The rise of materialism and death of meritocracy forces our 21st century romantic to daydream of a collective time when love was affordable and attainable, and not the product of a modern-day auction block.
In the end “the guiding light finds its way” and Love prevails. Yet, is it real or just an American Dream?

Bassist / Songwriter / Producer
Hailing originally from the streets of East Village, New York City, Zucchero cut his teeth in the bustling, industry-driven Manhattan music scene where songwriting and studio recording chops have long since been revered and rewarded. Cultivating these traits in the city’s local dive-bar and cabaret music incubators such as CBGBs, The Bitter End, Dan Lynch Blues Bar, The Bottom Line and Manny’s Carwash, with rock act Major Domo as well as local blues heroes Michael Powers, Popa Chubby, Sweet Georgia Brown and Frankie Paris, to name a few, Zucchero’s consequent appreciation for melody, lyrical craftsmanship, arrangement, improv and an overall connection with urban multiculturalism finds deep prominence in his record.
