New Orleans, LA (PressExposure) December 16, 2009 -- Louisiana native Dean Shoultz grew up in the heart of Cajun country. As a 12-year-old boy and his spanking new guitar from Sears, he could not resist the sounds that guitar legend Eddie Van Halen was producing. As time passed, Shoultz went through different band members as a leader then decided to take some guitar courses from Berklee College of Music. Ever the steadfast student, Shoultz would accelerate his playing to another level with each successive lesson and continued playing in bands that eventually led to the musical heights attained on his debut solo release All The Pretty Horses on indie label Prime Time Music.
Shoultz released an album with his brother as part of the King Creole band titled Spiritual Democracy and it was not long after that he started thinking about doing his own album. Armed and ready with a battery of Melancon guitars and Mesa Boogie amps, Shoultz partnered with producer Pershing Wells. With Shoultz supplying all of the guitars, most of the bass and lead vocals on two songs, All the Pretty Horses was set to become a reality.
All The Pretty Horses kicks off with atmospheric sounds provided by an acoustic guitar then a piercing electric lead steps in to take you to musical nirvana,Â a scenario that becomes commonplace on this album. Deanâs appreciation for the visionary Martin Luther King comes alive in the track âI Have A Dreamâ and FDRâs famous D-Day speech gets a spotlight in âWarâ which is one of Deanâs personal favorites.
Once rock enthusiasts give All The Pretty Horses a spin, the name Dean Shoultz will become synonymous with the word guitar hero and soon you will start hearing his name when discussing current and upcoming indie artists.
Dean commented âThe songs started off with hooks and rhythmic patterns that came to mind, and we just expounded on that. But itâs not mindless playing - itâs more melodic in nature.â
The guitar playing is beyond excellent on All The Pretty Horses and the technical proficiency that Dean displays on the recording is exemplary.Â Dean will continue to record more in the future while supporting the recording through a series of live dates in that will take shape in early 2010.
